Remember last month when Miami Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended five games and gave an emotional apology for praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro? Remember how self-deprecating he was following that? And remember how some were skeptical? Well the skeptics are saying "I told you so" today.
That's because Guillen was back to his old, profane, explosive self on Tuesday. Sportstalk 610's Paul Gallant -- in Houston -- decided to ask Guillen if the backlash against Guillen for his comments had "died down" while the Marlins were in town to play the Astros. It's a legitimate question considering Guillen manages in a city with plenty of Cuban immigrants and many of them were enraged following his comments. Guillen's response to the question?
"Fu**ing grow up, motherfu**er. You kidding me?"
Well okay, then. Here it is for your consideration (warning -- it is not edited):
Is it understandable that Guillen might be fed up with talking about his gaffe by now? Of course. But the reality is, when you praise a dictator and are suspended for it, part of your punishment is having to talk about it. For a long time.
"It's nice to know that Ozzie Guillen hasn't learned a thing or changed a bit," the popular sports blog Awful Announcing concludes.
