" That's right, I'll say it twice... F** k, off, Bud Selig, and screw the rest of you fags too.... screw PC, if you don't like it I will have my pitcher hit you!"
So Ozzy Guillen, the manager of the Chicago White Sox, calls a reporter (Jay Mariotti) he doesn't like a "fag". This is included with a healthy dose of swearing and attitude, and falls on the heels of Ozzy's shenanigans last week, in which he ordered a rookie pitcher to go headhunting and hit an opposing player. The pitcher was unsuccesful, (in Ozzy's eyes) because he did not hit the player. He did get the opposing player to ground out, which I thought was the job of the pitcher in MLB (get players out), but apparently for the Ozman, hitting is more important. Machismo rules... after all, he probably figured his pitcher was also a "fag" for not manning up and hitting somebody.
Compare this to Dallas Maverics owner Mark Cuban being fined $250, 000 by NBA commisioner David Stern for criticizing poor officiating, a complaint that any of the millions watching the NBA finals could easily recognize as legitimate.
As I've said before, the rules of PC are so arbitrary. I hate to see PC run amok, but the truth is that if Guillen had made an ethnic slur he would probably be in real trouble, and if he were white and used an ethnic slur, he would likely be fired.
Super smart (and oh so humble) I often wonder if heightened intelligence is a blessing or a curse. Recognizing the evil, lies, and corruption that dominate the world, I often retreat into films, comics, sports, and other distractions. Bread and Circuses, baby!! (Don't you just wanna hang out with me now; I must be a barrel of laughs). My blog is where you can read these thoughts, and soon enough you will begin to see, I'm a pretty cool guy. (There's that humility again)
