Vin Scully, from tonight's telecast:
Two and one the count to Felipe [Lopez].
I always marvel at his sideburns. They're not really sideburns. He must be a very patient man when he shaves. Probably needs a ruler. Isn't that something.
Fouled away. Two and two.
We've mentioned it before, talking about Felipe and the way he might shave, and talking about Roy Campanella. Roy Campanella used to shave with a tongue depressor.
Yeah, you know when you go to the doctor, the wooden tongue depressor, say "aah." That's what he shaved with.
He would take a depilatory, what the ladies would use to take the hair off their legs. Campy would put the depilatory on his face, then he would take the wooden tongue depressor and scrape it off, and the beard came off with it.
And I said to him, "Why don't you use regular shaving cream?"
And he said, "No, this is better on my skin, for the mask on my face."
Well one thing, you're not going to cut yourself with a tongue depressor.
Three and two to Felipe Lopez....
