That time Tommy Lasorda got the Expos mascot tossed out of a 22-inning, 1-0 game -

First, a warning: this video autoplays. I hate when sites do this.

Second, it’s pretty funny so I posted it anyway.

How do you say "He can't get them lefthanders out, for Christ allfuckingmighty" in French?

"Y'é pas capab' de r'tirer les gaucher, crisse!" [written in Quebec joual. Don't try to google it]

I remember watching that game at my grand-mother's while my parents were traveling. I was 12 at the time.

I remember watching that game on TV in LA. I got home from work about 6. I didn't end until nearly 11. Dodgers had 1 run on 20 hits.

"Y'é pas capab' de r'tirer les gaucher, crisse!"

Needs more "tabarnac" and maybe a "maudit" or two.

When I worked at the Hall of Fame, the Phillie Phanatic (sp?) costume came to the museum to be added to the collection. It smelled like the guts of a port-a-potty.

That sounds phetid.

The story (...) features a defunct franchise

The Expos/Nationals franchise is not defunct.

this Dodgers-Expos game from 28 years ago, a 22-inning game that produced a video lasting an impossible six hours, 39 minutes, and 12 seconds

If the Yankees and Red Sox played a 22-inning game in 2017, it would end...well, never, actually.
