Do you share a deep love for both Breaking Bad and minor league baseball? Well today you’re in luck, because the Albuquerque Isotopes have added two shirts honoring the city’s beloved meth kingpin to their product line. You can find them for sale here and here.
This is quite likely the most important thing that has happened in minor league baseball, quite possibly ever.
edit: apparently Vin messages are all sold out (before any other celebrity including Morgan Freeman and Will Ferrell!) Maybe they’ll get him to record some more? I know I’ll be a customer if he decides to do more.
This guy uploaded some key Vin Scully calls from the 2013 NLDS Game 4 vs the Braves. Here is his call of the Uribe home run.

__________________________“I grew up with Dodger Stadium. It was my home, and I knew certain things, even when times were rough or things not going well in school or my parents splitting up or whatever the case may be. I could always depend on the smell of the grass, listening to Vin Scully’s voice to bring back a sense of calm and safety. And it was that to me. It represented something, a touchstone, that was always there that I could always go to in times of trouble, and it was there for me."I really grew to passionately love the game for those reasons, for what it meant to me, not just physically but emotionally. It’s that important. And when Vin Scully finally retires, it will be a very sad day for me.”- Bryan Cranston, 2009

What a remarkable turn around for the LA Dodgers. When we were there for Sandy Koufax Bobblehead Night at the end of June, the Dodgers were struggling to get out of the basement. Now, they sit comfortably at the top of the NL West. We had to show some love. #ladodgers #losangeles #losangelesdodgers #mlb #mitchellandness #mitchellness
I need to get that tank. So broke.
