Can anybody tell me where to find the audio file of his famous tirade. The link to the only website I know that has it (that I found here) is down. Any help is greatly appreciated

I wish I knew, however it was one time where a Cubs Manager speaketh the truth. I love the article in Sports Illustrated last week with Bill Melton stating Wrigley is a "dump." Another great scene from the '89 nlcs with the Giants was a San Fran Fan holding a sign stating "How the Cubs spell tradition...LOSE." At least we won in 1917, and northsiders definitely remember the "Hitless Wonders."

Was that Earl Weaver tirade from the site for real? Of so, that was hilarious!

I've got MP3's of the Lee Elia eruption and I'd be glad to email them, if anyone wants. I've got two versions. One is the full, unbleeped version. The second contains Les Grobstein's observations on what led up to the outburst. Grobstein knows the story since he's the one who recorded it.

Have I mentioned recently that I was one of those "unemployed so-called fans, ripping everything you do" in attendance at the Urinal that very day?

Not unemployed of course, just watching the Flubbies from the bleachers after class.

:gulp:

I take it you still scrub yourself down with Lava every night, right?

Body lather with Lava? No, too alternative lifestyle for my taste. However I have gone to confession over my sins numerous times. Sitting in the bleachers at the Urinal will earn you some heavy hours with the rosary!
