Video: Vin Scully Relates a Jack McKeon Twitter Tale

When an octogenarian broadcaster attempts to relate a Twitter-related tale about an octogenarian baseball manager, you can be certain that something will be lost in translation and that youngins will have a good chuckle. Such was the case when 83-year-old Dodgers announcer Vin Scully regaled listeners with some tale about 80-year-old Marlins manager Jack McKeon talking to a Marlins player about “going home to play Twitter.” Scully seems to be making light of McKeon’s ignorance about the medium, but it’s rather obvious that Scully is somewhat in the dark himself.
