Sox Manager Guillen Obsessed with Man on Man Action

Ozzieguillen_1Last August a Newsday reporter noted that white Sox manager Ozzie Guillen better watch what he says about homosexuals following an incident in the Sox dugout when Ozzie introduced a friend of his to media gathered there and said, "'Hey, everybody, this guy's a homosexual!' Guillen shouted. 'He's a child molester!'"

Unattractive homosexuality/molestation comments aside, Guillen seems more comfortable with gayness than most in Major League Baseball — at least he seems more comfortable about actions that might be perceived as stepping over that gay line.

The Chicago Trib's Dawn Turner Trice says she believes that the key to the White Sox's winning season is the fact that Guillen makes a point to kiss nearly every player on the team, and doesn't stop there:

I noticed the kissing for the first time Saturday night, but I kept it to myself because before the pennant race, I hadn't been watching baseball games from beginning to end. I thought maybe kissing was the new thing from the new metrosexual male athlete.

But after consulting with several colleagues, I now understand that this kissing phenomenon is much more specific to the South Side team's metroSOXual manager.

On Sunday night, Guillen hugged and kissed his son, which isn't unusual. But then he also hugged and kissed Contreras. A few minutes later in the clubhouse, he hugged and kissed Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf after Reinsdorf was given the American League Championship trophy. (Sources tell me that Guillen hugged and kissed Sox pitcher Freddy Garcia after one playoff win, but I didn't witness that.)

Trice adds, "Any man who can kiss another man on the cheek in a fairly macho sport, and create an atmosphere where players don't mind a smooch every now and then after they've excelled, has won my heart and admiration entirely."

I wholeheartedly agree. The more kissing in that dugout the better. You never know what might help a team win the World Series.

  3. Ozzie only kisses the Latin players, not the Anglos and definitely not the non-Hispanic African Americans.

  5. Michael Peterson? Oh NO! You are 40? I thought you were pushing 50.


    I would love to give you a kiss on the cheek, on your lips, on your nipples, on your ripped chest, on your belly button, on your pubic region, on your giant pinga head, on each of your huge, low hanging balls.

    Happy Birthday!

  6. Guillen is an asshole. He says what he says because is probably a "bugarron". Those types are common in spanish and latin-american societies. Most of my friends, when I was a boy, played sexual games. Like show me yours and I'll show you mine to see whose is bigger. We jerk each other off to see who shoots the farthers, etc... My friends are all married and have children and will vehemently deny that they are gay. And probably they are not. It is part of the culture. In reality, it means very little in context. Now, here in the USA is different and Guillen is very wrong to talk that way about other people. He should be punished, somehow, so he learns to keep a civil tongue in a society that does not tolerates that kind of talk. Otherwise, he should go back to Venezuela and stay there.
