RIP, Scooter

Phil Rizzuto passed today. It's impossible to have grown up a sports fan anywhere in the northeast and not have heard or watched his broadcasts of Yankee games from the mid 50's through the 90's. His voice was easily one of the most recognizable in all of sports. He was also famous for unabashedly being a homer and his streams of consciousness, as well as his part in Meat Loaf's Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

God must have needed a play-by-play broadcaster for an all-history game. He'd be hard pressed to have picked anyone better.

"Holy cow"
