Ozzie Guillen is a sports blogger’s dream. Yesterday, Ozzie called Jay Mariotti a “stupid idiot” and a fag. “What a piece of (expletive) he is, (expletive) fag.” Stealing a page from the Sammy Sosa language barrier book, Guillen explained his use of the term.
I don’t have anything against those people. In my country, you call someone something like that and it is not the same as it is in this country.
Nice try Ozzie, but last August, Ozzie jokingly yelled out at a friend during a press conference, “Hey, everybody, this guy’s a homosexual! He’s a child molester!”
