Anyone else in the STL area see La Russa's press conference

Postby sportsaddict » Fri Apr 27, 2007 11:42 pm

Him and Bernie Mikalaz (sp?), a local columnist for the STL Post Dispatch got into a yelling match over an article in the paper today that basically ripped the Cubs and made fun of them. La Russa said it was a cheap shot and they started yelling back and forth... At the end it looked as if Mikalaz would come after him (hes huge- probably 400 pounds), but it ended peacefully. Just wanted to know if anyone else saw it, I personally thought the article in the paper was tasteless and I guess La Russa did too.

If I can find a link I'll post it. I watched it on TV on the local post game show, so I'm just posting what I saw.

Yeah he would, Bernie is nothing but a humongous blob of blubber.

They just showed it on ESPN.

Dude has some serious man boobs. I'm surprised he got up so fast. Maybe he saw a cheeseburger behind LaRussa.
