c'mon hootie, quit acting like MLB is a saintly church league, and ozzie guillen is the devil bringing it down.
Good attempt, but one really has nothing to do with another. One man accused of being dirty and breaking records that are already dirty, another man who blatantly calls columnists homosexual slurs?
I don't like Jay Mariotti by any means. I understand that the word is often used out of context and most of us have said it joking around with or friends, etc.
That doesn't make it right for a celebrity and LEADER of a World Championship team to be yelling it out in front of a microphone. Have some class Guillen.
Perhaps I'd cut him some slack if...
1.) He actually apologized and didn't the do that air quote BS.
2.) This was his first offense. But it isn't. The guy never shuts the hell up. I can respect a person who speaks there mind, but there comes a time where you need to either a.) realize the issue does not concern you (ala the A-Rod/WBC thing) or b.) think before you speak or c.) just shut the hell up.
The MLB doesn't need ambassadors like this.
