We Didn't Give Him

The owner of the Italian restaurant where Tommy Lasorda ate at the night before his heart attack insists ... his fine establishment is NOT responsible for the baseball legend's coronary catastrophe.

Anthony Bamonte -- owner of the 112-year-old Bamonte's in Brooklyn -- tells TMZ, Lasorda's heart attack on Monday "had nothing to do with the food here. A heart attack is a heart attack."



As for what Lasorda ate Sunday night, Bamonte tells us, he downed fresh mozzarella with tomato, linguini and clam sauce, and veal scaloppine pizzaiola with mushrooms. He also had some red wine.  What could go wrong with that?

Bamonte said he wouldn't suggest a different menu for Lasorda next time he visits, adding, "Tommy is Tommy. You're not gonna change Tommy."

Lasorda was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Monday, where doctors inserted a stent in his heart to correct a blocked artery. A rep for the Dodgers says he's resting comfortably in stable condition.

Yea right, one meal gave him a heart attack. It was most likely years of meals like that. If anything, the red wine they served him my have helped him. A glass of red wine is good for the heart and thins the blood.

I have to agree with the restaurant. How can one meal cause that? It can't.
Now, look at Tommy's stomach, and imagine all the crap he has eaten for years...that can cause one.
It was just time.

Whoever blamed the restaraunt is just stupid. He's been eating crap for years. It was his own fault for it, nobody else's.

You can just look at him and tell why he had a heart attack. He's the only one responsible.

That's absurd. Why would anyone even suggest that? They are caused by numerous things. Usually from many years of abusing your body.

OooooNooo!    

Remember when he was the spokesman for Slim Fast? Look, at his age, you might as well eat what ever the F you want, right? And after dinner have a big cigar. The end of the ride is dead ahead.

If I was going to blame his heart attack on anything it would have been from listening to that accordion music.
