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.

He's still dumber than ten Youppis.

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.
