Ozzie ♥ Castro
Ozzie Guillen manages the Miami Marlins, formerly known as the Florida Marlins, in a sport that was once our national pastime. The fact that Guillen is a major league manager must drive every wanna-be MLB manager in the universe absolutely insane.
“I love Fidel Castro,” Guillen was quoted as saying. “I respect Fidel Castro. You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that mother****** is still here.”
Guillen is from Venezuela. Hugo Chavez is also from Venezuela. Chavez also hearts Castro.
Guillen is in full back-peddle on his Castro gaffe, but “That’s Ozzie being Ozzie”isn’t much of an explanation nor excuse for a case or raging stupidity, especially from someone who’s supposed to be a leader.
As a point of comparison, it’s unlikely even GaffeMaster Flash, AKA Joe Biden would say such a thing. (Unlikely; not certain.)
