Catharsis for Earl

Have you ever wondered what is said when managers go out to argue with the umpires? In this classic uncensored (not for you, Cynthia!) footage, one of the few major league clips available on YouTube, Hall of Fame Baltimore Oriole manager Earl Weaver blows a fuse, as he did so often. Except this time umpire Bill Haller is wired with a microphone and Earl doesn't know it. Arguments like this just don't happen any more. What a classic. How many millions of people wish they could do this at their jobs?
