Classic Tommy Lasorda
As I kid I vividly remember watching Reggie stick his fat ass out and deflect that throw from second base. I remember how much I hated the Yankees, and couldn't believe the stupid umpires could let that play stand and not call interference.
Well, time and adulthood do change things. Looking at this now, I realize it was probably the right call. Reggie barely stuck out his ass after all, and in fast motion (see the first replay of the play in real time) it's nearly invisible.
Still, Lasorda's mic'ed up tirade is classic. Not to mention the umpires inexplicable RED "umpiring jackets."
Then, I got sent THIS more profane (warning: NSFW!) audio of Lasorda in the dugout, off-camera, but definitely ON MIC, talking about removing Doug Rau from the game and the f-bombings that ensue when he does.
Classic stuff. Enjoy.
