Hi there. Welcome to the journal. I would like to start out with a quote seen in the Sun Times today from someone who I have admired lately.

''Magglio is full of [bleep], Apologize to who? I don't have to apologize to anybody because, first of all, he's the first one to name me. He said I was pushing him to play [last season], and I was responsible. If he thinks what I said hurt him, I don't give a [bleep]. I didn't come here to make friends; I came here to win games. I've got a lot of friends. If Magglio doesn't want to be my friend, I'm not going to lose sleep at night. He's a piece of [bleep]; he's another Venezuelan [bleep]. [Bleep] him. He thinks he's got an enemy? No, he's got a big one. He knows I can [bleep] him over in a lot of different ways. He better shut the [bleep] up and just play for the Detroit Tigers. Why do I have to go over and even apologize to him? Who the [bleep] is Magglio Ordonez? What did he ever do for me? He didn't do [bleep] for me. But he said I'm his enemy -- he knows me. Did he play good for me? Yes, he did. Did he play hard for me? Yes, he did. He might like me. He might be sensitive of me. He might be jealous of me, I don't know why. But saying I'm his enemy, he hates me, I could care less what that [bleep] thinks. I don't give a [bleep] what he does with the rest of his life. He [bleep] with the wrong guy, and he knows that, too. He knows for a fact that he [bleep] with the wrong people.''-Ozzie Guillen, Chicago White Sox manager.

Yes, Ozzie Guillen, he's the man. Finally an Ozzie that America can fear. Forget about Ozzy Osbourne. The man looked like a special education reject with that damn reality show of his. And the last album Down to Earth  should have been called Flung to Mars because it sucked big time. You would think putting musicians like Zakk Wylde, Robert Trujillo, and Mike Brodin together would make magic. Instead it was kind of like the time Geraldo Rivera opened Al Capone's secret vault, just an empty room.

But with Ozzie, you can count on one thing for sure. He will always say what is on his mind no matter what. He doesn't give a shit about who gets offended and I believe that is a great quality in a person. I respect Ozzie. I liked him when he was a player, and love him as a manager. Finally, the White Sox have someone who they can be proud of in the dugout.

Ozzie has said one thing that all Sox fans still wonder about? Why do the Cubs get more media exposure than the Sox? For years we heard about the Two Headed Monster Prior/Wood on the Cubs and how great they were. But what about Mark Buehrle? Here is a great pitcher who has only just received the acclaim he should have gotten years ago. All the stuff about Sammy when he was good, and about how great the fans are. This is why the Sox fans are perceived as thugs. I would like to remind all of you that Eric Dybas, the fan that ran onto Comiskey to attack the Umpire, is a Cubs fan. He was at Wrigley before when the Cubs lost to the Reds, which would explain the drunken rage that prompted him to go out to the field. And do you guys remember when that dude got shot in front of the Cubby Bear, which is across the street from Wrigley? That was a Cubs fan who shot a Sox fan because he tapped on the hood of his precious SUV with a small bat, after the man driving that oversized piece of shit almost hit him. Ozzie is a great voice for the Sox and their fans, and it is great to see someone finally stand up and say, 'enough'.

And even though he is a younger manager, look at the job he has done with the Sox compared to the "Dustiny" of the Cubs. Ozzie has cleaned up the image of the locker room of the "bitter" White Sox, has put a smile on many of the players' faces and livened up the atmosphere. And then there's Dusty, dragging the Cubs further and further down the toilet known as a baseball park Wrigley. Ozzie has personality, he has style, and he is the man!

However, sometimes he needs to pick the right battles. What he said about Frank Thomas was not really called for. About how Frank, "shouldn't dampen the mood of the new Sox" was not too cool. Yet, I believe the media spun it because when they are not trying to suck the Cub's dick, they are too busy throwing the Sox in the mud. And there is one man who is all over this, our good friend, Jay Mariotti, columnist for the Sun Times.

Mariotti has a definite knack for writing and did a good radio show on ESPN 1000, but if anyone has bashed the Sox and been a Cub fan, it is him. I don't know why either. He left his show on ESPN because he didn't feel like he could speak freely because Sox owner, Jerry Reinsdorf, was a major part of the station considering that Sox games were broadcast there. Well gee Jay, did you think that your constant Sox bashing would be welcomed? It is OK to be objective, as Mariotti can be, but when it comes to the Sox and he sees a chance to rip them into a new one, he does. And this is his right. But how about the Sun Times find someone to counter him. He is just an example of the fun loving media and their Cubs. All the radio stations camped out by Wrigley for their opener, but when do you see stations do something on the south side to appreciate the White Sox and their efforts? The Zone did it last year, but what about this year? I guess we'll have to wait until next year. Ozzie will speak up about stupid shit like this and this is why the fans love him no matter what. Because we know it is more than just moving players around. Ozzie has a passion for this game and winning.

He has been accused of ripping on former players, but why should he compliment them? They aren't on the team anymore. And the Maggs situation was started by Maggs and his, "I don't want to talk to him, he's my enemy." Maggs was screaming for Ozzie to rip him into a new asshole. If anyone wants to talk shit, Ozzie will be there to let them know what time it is. As far as the Tigers go, who was that shit head that said, "the Indians and us, we were the only two teams that mattered." I guess that 9-1 victory will shut him up huh.

Bottom line, Chicago. There is a new storm coming into town. A new disaster breaking through. It makes the Great Chicago Fire look like a backyard campout with a bunch of Boy Scouts. It makes the Blizzard of the 70's look like a flurry. It is the Blizzard of Oz, and it is taking the Chicago White Sox all the way to the World Series. So Cubs, Tigers, Twins, and anyone else who stands in the Sox way, make a path, or get run over by the avalanche, because the South Side is taking this one for sure mother fuckers!!!!
