The Famous Lee Elia Tirade

Lee Elia.jpg
Here is a clip of the famous, legendary and very NSFW tirade by former Cubs manager Lee Elia. It is simply the greatest verbal tirade ever by a manager. The date was April 29, 1983, the Cubs had just lost to drop to 5-14 and Lee Elia was red hot. Again, lots of swearing in this clip.



Amazingly, Elia remained the manager for over 100 more games before he was finally axed. Can you imagine a manager doing that in this era and keeping his job for longer than 5 minutes? Elia ended up 127-158 in his stint as Cubs manager. But he is #1 all-time when it comes to tirades.

Right or wrong...haven't you had a time that you just wanted to "Cut Loose" and express yourself to someone in that manner.
