AUDIO: Happy 'Lee Elia Profane Rant' day

It was 31 years ago Tuesday that then Cubs manager Lee Elia grew wings and soared to previously untouched rhetorical heights. (Yes, it's Wednesday as I write this, but the point is that there's never a bad time to celebrate the artful use of naughty words.)

It was April 29, 1983, and Mr. Elia, following a 4-3 home loss to the Dodgers that dropped his squad to 5-14 on the year, was about to hold forth on the dissatisfied masses that had thronged to Wrigley Field for some day baseball.

Let us drink deeply of his timeless, heaven-kissed words ...

Print it indeed.

Thank you, Lee Elia. Just ... thank you.
