    Gotta be one of the top freak outs by a manager.

    I don't think I'm going out on a limb to say this will never be matched in today's game with it's more button down, face of the corporation type managers.

    I'm curious, how is Elia remembered by modern, employed, Cub fans ? Hated ? Folk hero ? No clue who he is ?
    I didn't follow baseball as closely during his 2 years, but every time I hear his name, it makes me smile.

    I didn't have a problem with it, and found it amusing. I'm just saying it's not a good career move to blast your employer's customers in the way he did it. The fans he was referring to were out of line.
