Lee's Rant

Baseball season is around the corner, and I thought it a good time to play for you one of the finest meltdowns in sports history, Cubs coach Lee Elia's swearing masterpiece from 1983. I spliced in some music in the background, and while there is a lot of hiss from the original Lee recording, I think if you have the patience to listen when the music gets more intense, you will hear it build up to a sweet cursing crescendo. If you want, count the times he uses the fuck word and post your answer in the comments. How fun! I mean, how fucking fun!!



Remember, hit pause on the music player on this page on the right before you play the song, or click where it says "MP3" to download it to your iTunes so you can road rage it in the car with old Lee.

I can't believe baseball is almost here. I am thinking it is not going to be a good year for my team, the Cardinals. Wainwright is done for the year, and the distraction of Pujols being a free agent does not add up to a great season in my book. I can't listen to the meltdown right now because Kyle is sitting right next to me but I always love to hear a meltdown from the Cubs. And I have failed to mention that your last two comments on my blog have been awesome.

Shife: Kyle would learn some new words, like "cocksucker." Thanks for the props on the comments. You're my boy, Blue!

I'm partial to the Kevin Borseth Michigan Women's Basketball meltdown. From the opening salvo with the clipboard to the bathetic understatement -- he eventually says he's "peeved" -- it has it all. He seems like such a NICE guy; nice, and angry!
