Another Reason Why Vin Scully is Simply the Best Ever

On the day in which I read that CBS and Gus Johnson have split (via Richard Dietsch on, I read this from Tom Hoffarth, on how only Vin Scully could mention the death of Osama Bin Laden in a proper way during a baseball broadcast. 
On Monday's Dodgers-Cubs game, Scully talked about how ESPN's coverage of the Phillies-Mets game Sunday night in Philadelphia had suddenly gotten sidetracked by fans chanting "U-S-A! U-S-A!" in the stands. "And you know where they were in the game at that point? The ninth inning," Scully said. "The score tied 1 to 1. Nine-one-one. Nine-11. How about that?"
That's the eloquence of the best ever.  Perfect, as always.
