When you are an 88-year-old broadcasting legend, you can pretty much get away with saying whatever you want on the air.

So when Vin Scully railed on socialism during Friday night’s Dodgers broadcast, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone. Scully, born in 1927, had some majorly hot takes on socialism when Venezuelan infielder Hernan Perez stepped to the plate. There is not much context here, just a beautiful, elegant mini-rant on how awful socialism can be.

“Socialism failing to work, as it always does, this time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello! Anyway, 0-and-2.”

Hello! Anyway, back to baseball. A great segue from Scully, who has also used broadcasting time to read a grocery list and explain the meaning of GOAT.

Thanks for the apropos lesson on socialism, Vin. You are, and forever will be, the GOAT.
