Phil Rizzuto, Rest in Peace

In MemoriumPhil "The Scooter" Rizzuto was 89. He was the Hall of Fame shortstop during the New York Yankees' dynasty years and was beloved by a generation of fans who delighted in hearing him exclaim "Holy cow!" as a broadcaster.

Non-sports fans know him best as the announcer who provides the play-by-play commentary during the long spoken bridge in Meat Loaf's 1977 song "Paradise by the Dashboard Light."
