Remember This Crap? 1983 Cubs - Pointless Exercise Podcast
Lee Elia had some thoughts about the fans that year
The other 15 percent take center stage as the wheel of crap lands on 1983. Lee Elia stood up for his team said a lot of really profane but accurate things and ended up getting fired a few months later, Leon Durham was the only All-Star on the club, Chuck Rainey almost threw a no-hitter, Fergie forgot how to throw the ball to first base, the Cubs played a five game series in Pissburgh and lost them all, and their interim Chicken had first managed in 1947. The guys play six degrees of Craig Lefferts, find out who wrote the opening theme to This Week in Baseball (you won’t believe the tie-in on that one) and they talk about Ted Williams hitting ropes off the San Diego Chicken.
