don’t know how White Sox fans feel about things, but those of us who
don’t care if they win or lose never, ever want Ozzie Guillen to be
fired, because if he was, a true national treasure would be lost. Here’s Guillen yesterday on the Sox’ annual trek to Wrigley Field:
one thing about Wrigley Field, I puke every time I go there. That’s
just to be honest. And if Cub fans don’t like the way I talk about
Wrigley Field, it’s just Wrigley Field. I don’t say anything about the
fans or anything now. But Wrigley Field, they got to respect my
opinion. That’s the way I feel.”
I went to Wrigley Field and
sat in the bleachers once, and I can tell you: Many Cubs fans puke when
they go there too. Though it probably has less to do with the
architecture than it does the Old Style.
Ozzie also has an
opinion about former teammate Jack McDowell, who had some harsh words
in his blog (McDowell has a blog? Really?) for Guillen’s treatment of
rookie Gordon Beckham:
I know Chicago better than Jack
McDowell. I know Chicago better than (Gordon) Beckham. I just try to
get fans and media to let this kid alone and let him play the game.
It’s kind of funny because everyone has their opinion and you think
people who know about baseball, all of a sudden surprise you that they
don’t. When people have little knowledge about the game, all of a
sudden you turn around like, ‘oh, I guess he don’t know (bleep) about
Ozzie Guillen is totally the best.
