LOS ANGELES -- Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully thanked Los Angeles Dodgers fans for making him feel like an 8-year-old again every time they cheer. The crowd, in turn, saluted Scully with a loud roar and multiple standing ovations on his appreciation night Friday.Holding hands with wife Sandi, he walked slowly from the dugout along a blue carpet dotted with the teams logo to a stage set up in front of home plate for the pre-game ceremony honoring his 67 years in the teams broadcast booth.Smiling, laughing and waving to the crowd, Scully placed his left hand over his heart in a sign of gratitude. As the applause and cheers continued, he shook his head and mouthed OK to let the crowd know it could quiet down.They ignored him.Hi everybody and a very pleasant good evening to you, Scully said, his signature greeting drawing the first of several roars.

I have always felt that I needed you more than you needed me and that holds true to this very day. I have been privileged to share in your passion and love for this great game.In his remarks, Scully thanked the fans for your enthusiasm, your passion for the game.When you roar, when you cheer, when you are thrilled for a brief moment Im 8 years old again, he said.

He turns 89 in November.Im going to try to live, he said, drawing laughs. Im looking for a much smaller house and a much larger medicine cabinet.Noting his five children, 16 grandchildren and three great grandchildren, Scully said, I guarantee you if I dont know what to do they will find something for me to do.Dodgers chairman Mark Walter, former owner Peter OMalley and former managers Tom Lasorda and Joe Torre, now an MLB executive, were among those on hand. OMalleys father, Walter, first owned the team and was instrumental in bringing the Bronx-born Scully west when the Dodgers relocated to the vast Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.It was a very strange phenomenon to be on the field and hear the broadcast coming out of the stands, Koufax said. The people of Los Angeles, even though they were at the game, didnt enjoy it without hearing Vin tell them about it. He entertained and he educated them.The ceremony began with Bob Costas narrating a video featuring vintage photos from Scullys career and memories from former Dodger Steve Garvey, actor Bryan Cranston, fellow announcers Joe Buck, Dick Enberg and Al Michaels, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and comedian George Lopez, among others.The Dodgers and Colorado players jammed their dugouts to watch.We just want to say thank you, Kershaw told Scully during his turn at the podium.Costner starred in the 1999 baseball movie For Love of the Game, in which Scully narrated the play-by-play of his characters perfect game.Were all taking deep breaths, Vin, Costner said. Were all struggling with our own emotions as we admit were down to our last three outs with you. Youre our George Bailey and it has been a wonderful life. You cant blame us for trying to hold on to you for as long as we can. And shame on us if you ever have to pay for another meal in public.Manfred announced a $50,000 donation from Major League Baseball to the Jackie Robinson Foundation in Scullys name. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts toted the oversized check on stage. Scully called Robinsons career when he broke the sports color barrier in 1947.After the speeches, both teams lined up on each side of home plate, removed their caps and listened to John Williams conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the national anthem behind the mound.Scully stepped to the microphone and proclaimed, Its time for Dodger baseball.And then he was gone, hurrying upstairs to his fifth-floor booth to spin another nights worth of baseball lore for generations of Angelenos soothed by the sound of his voice.

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. Cheap NFL Jerseys . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. http://www.nflcheapjerseys.us/ . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players.

When seen from the outside, cricket looks like brief moments of action interspersed with a lot of waiting around. But for fans of the game, the pauses give them time to digest the complex and layered moves they just watched (or time to go fetch a beer, complete a crossword, or take a power nap).In the photo above, batsman Scott Richardson and the fielders wait for bowler Jimmy Ormond to deliver the ball. From the end of every delivery to the beginning of the next, a batsman is usually left alone with his thoughts while the bowler walks back to his mark. The best of them can keep from cluttering their minds with noise, but sometimes the seeds of a dismissal are sown in this time spent alone.In Pretoria, 2005, Karen Rolton (extreme left) and other members of the Australia Womens team sit inside during a rain delay at a World Cup game.

But the real spectators are not going to be pleased with you if youre keeping them from watching Brian Lara bat.Sightscreen adjustments often hold up a game, but so can the flight plan of a flock of birds.Off the field, players spend a lot of their time travelling to venues. Here, Frank Tyson waits at the Northampton train station to join the England squad in Australia in 1954.Fans queue up outside the SCG for the 1954-55 Ashes Test in which Tyson took a match-winning 10 for 130. The third umpires decision, and DRS today, briefly blurs the line between players and spectators as everyone on the field and on TV watches what just unfolded and then waits for the verdict.
