LOL Ozzie Guillen chooses vacation over White House ceremony. . .
Sox pox . . .

February 9, 2006

BY MICHAEL SNEED SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST

Hmmm. White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen is blowing off an invite to the White House on Monday, where his World Series-winning team will be honored by President Bush.

Hmmm. Is this an anti-Bush statement? Is this a snub by native Venezuelan and newly minted U.S. citizen Guillen, who is treated like a king in his home country by President Hugo Chavez, who detests Bush? (The feeling is mutual, by the way.)

*The Sox reply: "No. It's a vacation," said White Sox spokeswoman Katie Kirby.

5. Yahooooo!! Ozzie! Ozzie! Ozzie!...
Not only is he a great manager, he is solid politically. He's pretty tight with Hugo Chavez who congratulated him on the world series victory.

And what makes this more delicious is he just BECAME A CITIZEN!

10. We Need More, Not Less Of This
For every Curt Schilling (undereducated know-it-all) we've got a dozen smart black or latin pro athletes who just have to know how bad this administration has been for their fellow americans. (Especially those of color.) The fact that more than a quarter of any team shows up is already baffling. Good for Ozzie.

14. Just Keeping On
Now that my wife's gastro problems are behind us, and my latest flare up is over, i'm counting on more easily manageable times. If not, oh well. Can't exactly give up, can we?

Hope you've been well. I'll make a point to get to the next Chgo. DU thingie. Hope you'll be there too.

13. I'd Blow it Off, Too
Why would I want to meet President Idiot? I have better things to do with my time. After the SOTU, I just couldn't believe all those people who were asking for *autographs* from the President! Why do people suck up to this guy? It's ridiculous!

15. Bu$h seems to place his "vacations" above everything else, so why
not Ozzie?

Good on him.
