IF the Cubbies had any huevos they would have had Lee Elia lead the 7th inning stretch last night.

I agree, it would be classic. Only thing is, most of the idiots there would probably have no idea who he is. Cub history pre-1984, and for more people in the last 10 years or so, pre-1998, is little more than a rumor.

To all the frat bros, and pretty much anyone under the age of 40, Wrigleyville has always been an upscale, happening neighborhood and Wrigley Field has been sold out every day of their lives. They have no idea how run-down, gang-infested that neighborhood was in the 1970s. They have no idea that the 3000 ****ing day drinkers who showed up every ****ing day to boo the Cubs was normal in that era.

Grobber, thank you SO MUCH for having the tape recorder on hand and running when Lee Elia spouted off with that classic rant. As thomas35forever said, it never gets old.

I wasn't sure about the date. I almost started a thread wondering why the anniversary passed unnoticed around here.

What the **** am I supposed to do, go out there and let my ****in' players get destroyed every day and be quiet about it? For the ****in' nickel-dime people who turn up? The mother****ers don't even work. That's why they're out at the ****in' game. They oughta go out and get a ****in' job and find out what it's like to go out and earn a ****in' living. Eighty-five percent of the ****in' world is working. The other fifteen percent come out here. A ****in' playground for the ********ers. Rip them mother****ers. Rip them ****in' ********ers like the ****in' players.

Always hilarious and absolutely never gets old. Nickel and dime people? Just priceless.
