This Is How You Do It

Some people will recall the CBS video from the 1986 NFC Championship game posted here last January. Some may be surprised to discover that NBC used to do the same kind of thing when it came to intros.

As ably recounted yesterday over at Desipio
, no one did more with less than Vin Scully. Using only a few words of prose, some pan shots of Wrigley Field, and a few still photos and small video clips, Scully creates a mood that still reverberates today.

The words and the image of Jody Davis evokes even stronger emotions today than those of 23 years ago.

Let's hope Vin's final words are correct.
