Quote of the Day: Ozzie Guillen

Dec 6, 2010, 2:16 PM EDT


We’ve reached the point of the Winter Meetings when the managers are made available for the media. Ozzie Guillen just got done talking and, not surprisingly, he drew a crowd. Why does he draw a crowd? Because he says stuff like this, when asked for his thoughts on the Jayson Werth contract:

I wish I was his agent. Or his wife.

There ain’t nobody better than Ozzie.

    Sure there is. Any garden variety aphasic bag lady sitting on a Manhattan steam grating can regurgitate a string of gibberish that’s funnier, makes more sense, and has more wisdom in it. Ozzie is a dimwitted jackass who thinks he’s the second coming of Yogi Berra in Espanglish, only dumber.

      Geez, Gator, did Ozzie run over your puppy once?

      • Old Gator - Dec 6, 2010 at 2:43 PM

        And then backed up again under the pretext of administering ultimate unction.

      • mcsnide - Dec 6, 2010 at 2:44 PM

        Well, at least you’re keeping it all in perspective.

      “Ozzie is a dimwitted jackass who thinks he’s the second coming of Yogi Berra in Espanglish, only dumber.”

      Don’t hold, Gator, .. tell us how you really feel. LOL!!

      Really? This from the person that insists on typing “Feesh” and “Feelie”?

      • Old Gator - Dec 6, 2010 at 5:35 PM

        I don’t need to “insist.” My keyboard is well trained and knows precisely what I expect of it.

        Which undoubtedly is quite handy when one of your hands is otherwise occupied, I’ll bet.

        That’s when knowing how to play stride piano in the lobby of a center of horizontal entertainment in Storyville came in handy, too. You had one free hand to hold your drink.

        Sorry, I’ve been reading Mister Jelly Roll again. I have a fondness for scoundrels.

    Yeah, just like I learned from Escher. What’s more, I’m not sure that if I hadn’t been standing there, he would have eaten it too – just because he couldn’t find a capybara to throw in the freezer for Easter. Or some such thing.

    I like Ozzie, he cracks me up, you never know what is coming out of his mouth.

    • Old Gator - Dec 6, 2010 at 5:34 PM

      I feel the same way about the spirit in my Ouija Scrabble board.

    Ozzie and the Village Idiot eat out of the same trough.
