Thousands flocked to Dodger Stadium Thursday night for a chance to walk away with a Vin Scully Bobblehead. They came away with so much more.
Like a unicorn doing the moonwalk, or a teddy bear slaying a crowd of Keebler Elves during a hilarious open-mic routine, a rainbow stood triumphantly behind Vin Scully Thursday evening, giving us all fuzzies that were so warm, some called them hot.
Hot fuzzies, people.

Drink that down, because it's smoother than any hot cocoa ever made and warmer than a mother's hug. Gosh, I may just have to look again.
Life is pretty much all downhill from here, because I have seen the mountaintop, and it's a brilliant man in a blue suit holding his fricking bobblehead.
If I smiled any wider, my face would split open and Dodger blue would spray all over my computer screen.
Turn away if gushing and overt outpouring of emotions makes you a tad queasy, because things are about to get emotional.
I love me some Vin Scully.
It turns out this is a fairly popular opinion, because the news he would return to the booth for the 2013 season was received around Los Angeles like news that peace had been restored to the world or In-N-Out Burgers were being given out for free.
The Dodgers have had some horrible seasons and some dreadful owners throughout the years, but it's been easy to remain a loyal fan, because Vin Scully rocks the mic.
He may re-tell some pretty fanciful tales now and again, but consider them the bedtime stories you love to hear.
If you find yourself wondering whether Scully is indeed the best thing to ever happen to this cynical and ugly world, remember that a beautiful rainbow took time out of its awesome existence to stop by Chavez Ravine and say hello.
