Would that a lot more of our sports announcers were as excellent as Mr. Scully.

I'm not the world's biggest baseball fan, but I really enjoyed this documentary. Nicely explains, among other things, why a 100 mph fastball is so much harder to hit than a 92 mph one and why, despite the testimony of many hitters including Hank Aaron, a very fast fastball does not actually rise on its way to the plate (but also why it's reasonable for hitter to think so).
I found it entertaining.
The very-difficult-to-beat Joe Posnanski on LeBron and Cleveland.
I've heard some excited sports announcers before, but I've not heard one like this.
"In his so far magical swansong season,David Ortiz is sprinting toward the finish line of a race far more significant than any of us ever imagined."
Two more Big Papi-related: "David Ortiz Explains What We Need to Do to Make Baseball Fun Again" and "Rivals".
Michael B. Jordan and Jaden Smith are inspired choices.
