"Being 80 years old, I can't believe that I am 80 years old," said Lasorda, who's still active with the Dodgers as the special advisor to chairman Frank McCourt. "I don't think I'm 80 years old, I don't act like I'm 80 years old. So who you're looking at and talking to is the most contented person you can
find."

:happybday

I met him once 20 years ago on the field at Stade Olympique in Montreal

We wanted to do an interview with him and I approached him at the batting cage

He turns to me and says "What the **** do you want?"

I replied "I need a ****ing interview"

Tommy says "Oh Ok..where do you need me" :lol:

Then he told me about a great Italian restaurant in Leominster, Ma

He was right..it was worth the 40 mile trip

Haha, that's great. I can almost hear Lasorda saying that. I've always liked him.
