Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Abreu's day off

Sep 23, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

The mid-afternoon blahs always hit me around 3PM, and when they do my deep-thinking abilities flag. And I start paying attention to really dumb stuff. Like celebrity Twitter accounts. Here’s an Ozzie Guillen tweet from around then:


Enjoying this great day off in anaheim some shopping then maybe dinner with my goo friend bobby abreu

I love the idea of Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Abreu hanging out, doing a little shopping, then going to dinner. I picture a mid-80s movie-style musical montage in which Abreu comes out of the dressing room with a new outfit on, but Ozzie shakes his head.  Abreu comes out with a second outfit on, but Ozzie shakes his head.  Then Abreu comes out with a third outfit on and Ozzie smiles and gives him a big thumbs up. Then they go to Orange Julius together and plot how to get the best of William Zabka or whoever.

The only thing that killed this little daydream was a tweet from MLB.com’s Twitter feed a few minutes ago, re-tweeting Ozzie’s thing, only with edits:

RT @OzzieGuillen Enjoying this great day off in anaheim some shopping then maybe dinner with my good friend @BobKellyAbreu #whitesox #angels

Note the added “d” at the end of the word good? Ozzie’s omission of the “d” made his tweet charming. I could hear his voice, man! And Ozzie isn’t a big social media maven, so he had no need to @ Abreu’s name or do the hashtags. He was just keepin’ it real.

Oh well. I hope Ozzie and Bobby have fun today.

    What I like even better is that if you follow the link to Abreu’s page, as far as I can tell just about every post is in Spanish. So apparently MLB thinks that whoever would be interested in following a link to an all Spanish twitter feed also requires the “d” being added to Guillen’s post.

    I picture Ozzie offering Bobby a taste of his ice cream cone, Bobby leaning in, and Ozzie bumping Bobby in the nose with the ice cream.

    Craig,
    You need some 5 hour energy
