That's my favorite thing about old time announcers like Vin Scully. Even after being a rabid baseball fan for over 40 years, every game Vin comes up with things I don't know about the game and/or the players in it. Now, THAT's a real commentator.
The modern announcer seems to think we want to hear about the announcers lives and what they like and dislike about the world in general. Who cares! We're baseball fans. At least talk about the guys on the field and/or the game we're watching.
