I can't resist. The recent rash of posts on public rants reminded me of this one. God bless You Tube......

Lee Elia, Manager of the Chicago Cubs, goes off the deep end in April 1983.

Definitely NSFW or home

"It's a disheartening $#%!*@## situation we got out there....."
Elia's outburst occurred on April 29, 1983, after the Cubs suffered a one-run home loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The rant took place during a postgame session with reporters in his office. Elia was pissed off at the continual booing by the Wrigley crowd (both during and after the game) and frustrated that no one could see beyond the Cubs' 5-14 record for any of the progress he felt the team was making.

Perhaps the greatest sports tirade of all time
