Dead @ 82. Greatest Baltimore Orioles manager of all time. Perfected the art of arguing with the umps.

RIP Duke.

"Get your finger off of me!" LOL...Love Earl. Always as a baseball fan love him- what a great piece of footage that is. I remember taping that off a baseball tape that showed just that footage that was posted- back in '94 or so. He was a smart guy, and alot of this was for show, obviously. I love the pre game show where he went off.

So old-school
Devils John Madden being interviewed:
Interviewer- How does it feel to cover Gomez?
Madden- I don't know. I don't cover 3rd line centers.

Died on the cruise that my aunt was on. He was a good friend of the family. My aunt and her sister were in his box with him when his statue was put into the garden. My aunt is absolutely devastated.

RIP

The Orioles were the Yankees main rivals in the late 60's and early '70s. You always had to at least respect the Orioles teams managed by Earl. The hatred was saved for the Red Sox.

RIP to Earl. A master of many great one-liners in sports history. He was once asked to join a prayer service and "walk with the Lord". He replied, "I'd rather walk with the fuckin' bases loaded". LOL

This was my FB status the day he passed:

RIP to Earl Weaver, my kind of manager. This quote seems fitting today. "On my tombstone just write, 'The sorest loser that ever lived.'" -Earl Weaver

RIP Earl Weaver, a great old school manager




That infamous profanity laced post game show is classic. Look for it online if you havent heard it.
