Tight Pennant Race? More Booze For Ozzie, Please
I can identify with Ozzie Guillen for many reasons other then just being the manager of the White Sox. He likes to speak his mind, and does so with lots of profanity just like me...Hmm, on the other hand Ozzie is Venezulean, married, has kids, played in the majors and makes millions. I'm white, single, no kids (that I know of), played little league and make thousands. Maybe that's the only thing. Oh wait, we also share the need to kick back with a copious amount of booze to unwind from a stressful day at work.
Whether it's fitting in with others:
"I am their friend. If they don't buy me a beer, they disrespect me."
Making a decision on tough issues:
"I don't know," Guillen said. "I need to get drunk and think about it."
"The only thing I remember is the base hit [Alexei] Ramirez got yesterday to right field to win the game," Guillen said of the Sox' thrilling victory Sunday over the Tampa Bay Rays -- the AL East's new first-place team. "There was a lot of vodka between that game and today, believe me."
Ozzie and Dr. C agree that there's nothing like a good stiff drink. But what I'm being to wonder:
Do you think Ozzie has ever been drunk while coaching? Baseball would be the easiest sport to get hammered and not really have anyone notice. You've got 9 innings to sober if you get drunk before hand, and with a couple mints you'd be good to go for postgame interviews.
And besides, Ozzie's so fucking crazy who would even be able to tell if was half in the bag?
