The Dodgers have done it. After a 32-year World Series drought, Los Angeles defeated the Rays, 3-1, in Game 6 on Tuesday night to capture the World Series. It's the team's seventh World Series title -- and the first without legendary broadcaster Vin Scully on the mic.

But have no fear, he was on Twitter as soon as the game ended to give the team a hearty congratulations:

Because Scully is the consummate professional, he also had a video message on hand. Now, you may think he prerecorded this, but I say that Scully can obviously see the future.

Or, more likely, Scully's not afraid of any jinxes -- something he made clear back in 1960!

So, be like Vin Scully: Celebrate responsibly, and then make charming videos where you say things like, "Congratulations to the ballclub. Congratulations to you."

And if you want to hear Scully's call from the last time the Dodgers were world champs, then check out the video below:
