    Earl Weaver is 80.

    The tape a friend made for me that includes all that Lasorda stuff has some Weaver on there and it is just hilarious. In one, he refuses to give a straight answer on his pregame radio show in the letters from listeners segment. In another, he's miked when he goes to argue a call. He goes apeshit and tells the ump "I'm going to be in the Hall of Fame." To which the ump replies, "For what? Fucking up the World Series?" The reaction is priceless.

    The argument with Bill Haller is a classic. probably one of the first instances of an umpire/manager argument being recorded. It was the second batter of the game.
