Vin Scully at the Rose Parade 2014: a (sort of) master post
Pictured above: the Dodgers’ salute to Vin Scully in the Rose Parade program. Please excuse my poorly-manicured thumbnail.
Today (well, yesterday now), for the first time in my life, I attended the Rose Parade. It’s definitely something worth doing at least once, especially if you’re in Southern California. And hey, what better year to go than when Vin Scully himself was serving as the parade’s grand marshal?
The only problem with going and getting to see Vin live and in person was the fact that I missed all of the fun stuff he did that could only be seen on television. Now that I’m finally home and have time to go back and catch up, I figured I’d put it all together for anyone who might have missed it (or who wants to relive it!).
- Vin’s pre-parade interview on KTLA
- Vin reciting “I Love a Parade” on ABC’s broadcast (via the wonderful vinscullytweet!)
- Vin’s post-parade thoughts on his parade experience (bonus: Vin’s thoughts on the 2014 Dodgers)
- KTLA’s broadcast of the parade (the Vin content can be seen from 2:30-12:00)
- The beauteous "deal with it" GIF to result from that
- Vin’s coin toss at the Rose Bowl (also thanks to vinscullytweet)
- Jon SooHoo’s photo blog of Vin’s big day
It’s entirely possible I missed some stuff, but that’s a good amount right there. Be prepared to smile endlessly. Vin is just the best.
