Vin Scully momentarily lost his 1988 World Series ring while shopping, found it in a bag of ribs
Scully briefly loses WS ring, takes search to Twitter
At some point on Thursday, legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully was out getting some shopping done at Costco with his wife, Sandy. Scully apparently loves Costco and describes it as his "second home." Asked to choose between his profession and the mega-grocery store, the 87-year-old poetically responded:
But after his shopping day was over, Scully noticed something was wrong:
His World Series ring was missing.
And so, Scully did what any of us would do if we had misplaced something so valuable -- he took to Twitter:
While Christmas shopping today, Vin Scully lost his 1988 World Series ring. If you find it, please contact the Dodgers at (323) 224-1500.- Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) December 18, 2014
In the past, Scully hasn't been the most adept with Twitter -- once asking his viewers, "What in the world is a hashtag?" -- but sending out an APB over the medium seemed to be the best move given the circumstance.
For 10 tense minutes, the Twitter universe scoured Southern California for the rare piece of memorabilia.
But just when all seemed lost ...
Great news! Vin Scully's 1988 World Series ring has been found. (This was not a drill -- Vin thanks everyone for their concern.)- Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) December 18, 2014
Where did the prized possesion turn up? Well, Sandy found it in the car ... in the bottom of a bag of ribs.
