    Today is the 23rd Anniversary of Lee Elia's Famous Speech!

    On this date in 1983, Cubs manager Lee Elia gave one of the most famous profanity-laced post-game interviews in sports history, after the Cubs lost 4-3 to the Dodgers at Wrigley Field to drop their record to 5-14.

    There is a link to the speech at http://www.angelfire.com/il2/cubssuck/elia.htm

    Be aware that this is definitely Rated-R stuff!
    Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.

    Gen. George S. Patton, Jr.
