Show of hands: Who watched Prime Ticket for Vin Scully?

I cheerfully admit to it. I had the choice of the Prime Ticket or FSW/KCOP feeds, and I took Prime Ticket to listen to Vin Scully. No matter how favorably one thinks of Physioc and Hudler, they don't approach the level of professionalism in Scully.

Even more remarkable is that the man is the very antithesis of a "homer"--he loves good baseball, and an excellent play by the opponents gets praise and note from him. In an age of home-team-shilling play-by-play men, Vin Scully does his broadcast for the baseball fan. His wealth of personal experience provides anecdotes and recollections which illustrate and illuminate--but never overwhelm--the action in front of him.

There is nobody else in baseball broadcasting like him. I wish him many more years behind the mic with all his faculties intact (unlike the final years of Chick Hearn, for example), and when he retires, I hope it is for all the right reasons. He is one of a kind, and I enjoyed the Angels wins (and losses) more this past weekend because I listened to Vin Scully.

So...anybody else elect the Dodger telecast just for the audio portion?
