It's time for another round of every Chicago baseball fan's favorite game, "Guess The Deleted Expletive In Ozzie Guillen's Anti-Cubs Rant." Or for bonus fun, just make up a word and get an even better quote.
The entire White Sox-Cubs series this weekend was ripe for wackiness since baseball's most dysfunctional "rivalry." When Lou Pinella wasn't screaming at his own players he was taking swipes at the South Siders, helpfully pointing out that attendance at U.S. Cellular Field takes a significant jump whenever the Cubbies take the bus downtown. Over 20,000 more fans showed up than when the Dodgers were visiting the previous weekend. Fortunately, the only man who can go toe-to-toe with Lou's crazy was ready with a response:
"Because our fans are not stupid like Cubs fans," Guillen said. "They know we're [expletive]."
Guillen said Cubs fans will watch any game at Wrigley Field because "Wrigley Field is just a bar."
Maybe Ozzie Guillen isn't crazy, because that is exactly true! But what do White Sox fans know about their team's state of being? Sure, "shit" is the obvious answer, but could it be something else? Clowns? Tax cheats? Cheese-lovers?
The one thing both managers agree on? Smoking dope ain't so bad.
