    "I thank God I was born a Dodger. Why, I remember this one time, it had to be 1959. Spring training. We were in spring training, a'raring to go when a car pulled up. A man ran out, yelling that his wife was pregnant and about to give birth. I'll never forget it!

    "Duke, Sandy and I ran over. I told the man that I would catch the baby, just like I caught for Sandy when he threw on the side. You know, I always told him, 'Sandy, these guys can't can't touch you. Just believe in you.'

    "Anyway, Duke, Sandy and I gave the lady our jerseys to use as blankets and we delivered that baby! It was such a great moment for us as a team that we all went for chocolate milkshakes at the Ol' Malt Shope."

    Really? That Tommy Lasorda? Surely you don't mean the same guy who spoke so kindly about Dave Kingman's three-homer game in 1976.

    What the fuck do you mean, I'm bullshitting around.

    What kind of fucking question is that?

    Tommy Lasagna is a Hall of Fame manager. The 2000 Gold Medal run confirmed that for the final time.

    He is also a guy who fashions himself an ambassador of the game.

    He is also a guy who brought this Dodger fan a lot of great moments growing up, and who signed every autograph at my church's annual breakfast.

    But most of all, he is an absolutely insufferable blowhard who has to be the only one who buys the bullcrap he is selling.

    When he came up from Ft. Jackson to pitch textile league ball for the Goldville (now Joanna) Hornets on the weekends as a youngster, he was a mean-tempered lefty who would flip your butt at a moment's notice; had a decent curveball.

    The visual everyone has now is that guy who looks like the carpenter in "The Walrus and the Carpenter", falling on his butt while coaching third at the All-star game. That's a shame. Sure, he's full of crap, but he's had a life.

    Yup, the one he wouldn't talk to until he was dying of AIDS and Bobby Valentine convinced the old bastard that he had to make peace with the kid before he died.

    The biggest fraud in baseball.

    He was a great manager (I say that as a Dodger fan). Sadly, as spnited said, a big fraud.

    He walked by me at the 2004 World Series and had this look on his face like anyone who approached him would be told to go fuck themselves.
