Today is Opening Day

Yes, I know the first game was last night, and the Red Sox came from behind to beat the Yankees, but today is the REAL Opening Day, when the Cardinals go visit the Cincinnati Reds, who have hosted the traditional opener for as long as i can remember.

Today is the day when the Cubs and the White Sox start 0-0 and have a chance to win the pennant, and I hope it lasts longer than June.

Gotta have the Big Hurt, even if he was with Toronto at the time.

So, thanks to the Internet Archive, I want to give you a gift: here is the recording of Vin Scully, the greatest play-by-play man of any sport, the voice of the Dodgers for 62 years (yes, you read that right) calling Sandy Koufax's perfect game on September 9, 1965.  It is a masterpiece, as was Koufax's pitching.  Enjoy!
