It's good to see that he has his team's, and the city of Chicago's best interest in mind. This from a coach who was quoted a multitude of times during the regular season saying the most idiotic things any manager has ever said, at least when he could be understood that is. And it wasn't over yet. As they say in the informercials that just happen to catch your attention and never let you go, but wait...there's more:"Hopefully I'll be the first Latino (manager) to win an All-Star game"
I'm sure the city of Chicago, rejoicing from having won it's first baseball championship since 1917, appreciates hearing that their manager is more interested in Venezuela's celebration than their own. If I were a White Sox fan, which even though they just won the World Series I am glad I'm not, I would first celebrate, then call for Guillen's head on a platter. Ownership should tell him thanks, but we can take it from here. The conversation should go something like this:"Guillen was ready to take the prize with him.
"With all due respect to Chicago fans, I know my country, they're going crazy," he said. "The trophy is going to Venezuela.""
Hey Ozzie, thanks for leading the team to the championship, really we appreciate it and all, but we'll be taking that trophy to Chicago...you can head off to Venezuela if you want, but the trophy stays here with the players that actually won it. What's that? Your only coming back next year to manage an All-Star Team? Thanks, but no thanks...I think we can find someone to do that for you. Sorry Oz, gotta go now, Lou Piniella is on the other line.
Your Tonya Harding, how do you keep in shape for your next boxing match? Spar with your roommate and tell police it was two masked men.
It never fails. You sit down at a poker table and someone shows you up by playing with their chips.
