Vin Scully Shares His Favorite Holiday Memory On Twitter
Dodgers broadcaster and living legend Vin Scully commandeered the Dodgers' official Twitter account this morning to answer questions from fans.
Vin's responses ran the gamut from fond childhood memories at the ballpark to origins of "Pull up a chair." But this magical, four-part response to Yahoo!'s Tim Brown made the entire morning:

The 86-year-old Scully, who has spent an unprecedented 65 years in the Dodgers broadcast booth, was mainly there to promote santascall.org, a website that gives parents the opportunity to get "Santa" to call their children. Here's a selection of his other responses to fans, including a hat tip to a fan languishing in jury duty:
We hope you live forever, Vin.
