Speaking of wine and Mozart and things that age well, Vin Scully, at 77, remains nothing less than a national treasure, turning routine groundouts into sonic literature. The other night, when he described Dodgers shortstop Cesar Izturis spearing a ball by "falling to his left like a statue that's been pushed over," I sat in the dark a continent away and thanked providence that I live in this age of technological wonder. The glowing digital dial of my satellite radio read MLB ON XM. But I knew otherwise. This, really, was the Voice of America. ?
