Kudos To The Cubune For Running Roger's Article (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/cs-030428elia,1,2750315.story?coll=cs%2Dhome%2Dheadli nes)


"I hope we get [expletive deleted] hotter than [expletive deleted] just to stuff it up them 3,000 [expletive deleted] people that show up every [expletive deleted] day, because if they're the real Chicago [expletive deleted] fans, they can kiss my [expletive deleted] ass right downtown," Elia screamed. "And print it!"

"The [expletive deleted] don't even work," Elia said. "That's why they're out at the [expletive deleted] game. They ought to go and get a [expletive deleted] job and find out what it's like to go out and earn a [expletive deleted] living. Eight-five percent of the [expletive deleted] world is working. The other 15 percent come out here. A [expletive deleted] playground for the [expletive deleted]."

Crawdad you might have to post a warning before showing a picture of Les. :D:

One thing about Grobber is he could probably remember word for word what Elia said even if he never taped it. Unbelievable memory.....all those great Cub moments hehehe

Ha! Les is a good person. Les was very kind when I met him at the 2002 home opener.

I'm sure Les remembers every word. You're right, Les does have a terrific memory for details.

One memory Les would like to erase, when the Sox swept the Cubs at Wrigley!

Driving home from work yesterday I heard Les on with his former partner, Steve Dahl. Les was a guest invited to talk about Elia tirade but the conversation veered into how Steve's producer catching a glimpse of Les exiting a shower. In view of what they talked about yesterday, maybe instead of "Grobber" Les' nickname should be "Big Unit."
