Mustache May 'stache of the Day: Lee Elia

Thanks to the continued support of the American Mustache Institute, it is with great pleasure that I continue our month long celebration of the 'stache with the most foul-mouthed manager ever to don the lip sweater...Lee Elia.

As a tribute to Nick Digilio of 720 WGN-AM Radio (you can listen to my appearance on his show HERE)...I've gotta go with another Cub.

AMI Style: Looking like 87% of the men in their mid-50s at the time...Elia rocked the chevron

Grade: C Elia was un-mustached throughout most of his career. However, in true Chicago fashion, he grew out his cookie duster and the results...average.

Unless you've been under a rock for most of your baseball lovin' life, you've heard the following 1983 rant by Elia. If you have heard it...hear it again HERE.
