Lee Elia's rant
April 29th is the 25th anniversary of Lee Elia's famous rant against the Cubs fans who had booed his team that day. I was listening to WLS yesterday while they discussed it. The question that set off Elia was asked by WLS sports reporter Les Grobstein. More background here. Elia wasn't proud of his loss of temper but you can hardly blame him about being sick of Cubs fans. I wonder if he would have liked it better if the fans did not pay attention to the game like the majority fans do today.
