Tony is upset because he was gearing up to make a sppech in front of the town. The occassion of the grand opening of the store had gathered most of the town, and until Lige interrupted him, he had the town's attention.
The men in town like to top each other in stories and attention-so basically Lige took away Tony's big moment.
