Sparky Anderson Once Went on Legendary Rant Filled with F-Bombs
Legendary manager Sparky Anderson sadly died Thursday due to complications because of dementia. Sparky became the first manager to win a World Series in both leagues, winning two titles with the Reds and then a third with the Tigers. He was said to be self-deprecating and didn’t want to set foot into the Hall of Fame feeling he was unworthy of the honor.
The Dorsey High product, who I knew best as the longtime manager of the Tigers, once went on a legendary rant littered with cuss words. Ben Maller pointed out the rant and by goodness, is it epic. This one sets a record for highest percentage of cussing. This baby is NSFW and unsuitable for Ray Allen’s ears. It’s a must-listen if you’ve never heard it:
For those of you keeping track at home, here’s the cuss word scoreboard:
- > F-Bombs: 18
> S-Bombs: 7
> A$$: 3
> ***k sucker: 1
> SOB: 1
Now that was freaking impressive.
