Expletive Earl - baltimoresun.com

Here’s the backstory to the following video.

The video is NSFW!!

Classic stuff! RIP to Earl Weaver. He was one of a kind and my favorite manager of all time.

Word has it that Earl cussed Saint Peter a new one until he let him into Heaven.

Isn't this backstory kinda obvious?

If I didn't link to the backstory, I guarantee someone would think this aired.

BTW, welcome to the Internet?

When I clicked the Baltimore Sun link, there was an ad below the story saying something like "Increase your tomato harvest."

There was a popular series of CDs in the late 1990s titled CELEBRITIES AT THEIR WORST with infamous airchecks and uncensored celeb comments (Buddy Rich yelling at his band, Paul Anka yelling at his band). "Manager's Corner" was on there along with Lee Elia's rant and Lasorda's opinion of Dave Kingman's performance.

These do not belong on that CD. These are examples of those fine men at their best.

Hell, Kehoskie would have cited it as a reason to impeach Obama.

Those cheap SOBs at the Sun won't let you look at the link without hustling their fee based online version. Do other cities make their paid paper subscribers pay to see an online story?
