Everybody loves a parade, but when it's the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade, and Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully is the grand marshal, everybody especially loves a parade. Above in the Vine, here's Vin wishing everyone a happy 2014.

Here's how the 86-year-old described his day in the Los Angeles Times:

"It's been absolutely thrilling and heartwarming," Scully said after offering a visitor a chance to pull up a chair in a Rose Bowl suite. "One of the great things about it is I was able to share it with my wife with our grandchildren, most of them, and children. So the thought that they were enjoying it as much as I made me feel even better."

Scully, immaculately dressed in a blue blazer — what else? — and gray slacks, was not fazed by the early morning start.

"I don't think we would have slept much anyway thinking about it and relishing the experience," he said. "It's been really somewhat overwhelming."

And the Stew wishes Vin another happy season calling baseball games. May he last forever, or at least as long as he wants.
