Vin Scully doesn't understand hashtags, is flabbergasted by DogTV

Vin Scully is an American legend. So what if Vin doesn't know what hashtags are? Why would he? He's 85. He lived 91 percent of his life without ever encountering one. In fact, we're really the weird ones in this scenario. Since when do we need to categorize everything we need to say into codified buzzwords? And what about those people who hashtag things on Facebook?

And you know what? DogTV is strange. He's right. How do you sell a sponsored product to a pet? What happens if a cat watches DogTV?

All of this just proves that the world we live in can be very confusing and I, for one, am thankful that we have Vin Scully to help us through it.

Keep up the good work, Vin. We need you more than you know.
