Vin Scully offers career advice to Zev Yaroslavsky (video)

scully-zev-grab.jpgHere is the Vin Scully video I mentioned from Monday night's Disney Hall send-off to Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who leaves office on December 1. Yaroslavsky had made it known often that he craved Scully's job. Scully responds in an amusing video I'm told was recorded in one take with no script and no Telepromptr.

Below is a longer video honoring Yaroslavsky also shown at the Disney Hall soiree, and also produced by Joel Sappell of Yaroslavsky's staff and videographer John Vande Wege. By the way, the content from Yaroslavsky's feature story website — which I dubbed ZevWeb — will be preserved online through the office of the county's chief executive officer. Link to come on that.
