ReFLETCHions of You and Me

ever wonder why Fletch hated Tommy Lasorda so much???

screenwriter Andrew Bergman says that the famous baseball manager cameoed in a deleted sports-fantasy sequence that featured Fletch pitching for his Dodgers. Unfortunately, all the cut scenes have been lost [EW]

Chevy Chase, Tommy La Sorda, Kirk Douglas, Jack Valenti on set at Dodgers Stadium, 1985

and apparently lost to history are also deleted scenes of Fletch as a Los Angeles Kings goalie

and I want to see ALL of the Chevy-Kareem footage.  ALL OF IT!!!
