View Full Version : Fred Mitchell on the Elia Rant

Fred Mitchell wrote about the 1983 Lee Elia conniption fit in his Trib column today.

I don't this part is widely known, but Mitchell said that the immediate trigger was the fact left field bleacherites dumped beer on Larry Bowa and Keith Moreland as they walked toward the clubhouse.

Not because it was a Cub thing, but that Lee Elia rant uncensored (Stern has played it several times on satellite) is one of the funniest coach rants ever.

Must be running short on Cubs news... going back 25 years to fill.

Hey, it's the Silver Anniversary! Same for the Sox 'Winning Ugly' team!
That only happens once in a lifetime.
