It's refreshing in a cynical sports world when an athlete or in this instance a manager can be honest when it comes to their drinking. The Miami Marlins new manager Ozzie Guillen was asked what he does on the road after the game. Guillen as always didn't shy away from the brutal truth according to Larry Brown Sports...
“I go to the hotel bar, get drunk, sleep,” Guillen said, according to Eye on Baseball. “I don’t do anything else.”
Guillen says he doesn’t even do much sight seeing when visiting cities.
“I get drunk because I’m happy we win or I get drunk because I’m very sad and disturbed because we lose,” Guillen said. “Same routine, it never changes. It’s been the same routine for 25, 28 years. It doesn’t change. I don’t like to go out.”
God bless you Ozzie Guillen. I would like to think Guillen drinks a lot because he is still plagued by the baseball gods (or in this case idiot writers) who gave him the Gold Glove in 1990 over Cal Ripken despite Ripken setting a major league record for fewest errors and highest fielding percentage by a shortstop. Having that kind of weight on your shoulders must be debilitating knowing you stole an award that clearly deserved to go to someone else.
Nah! He's just a drunk. Cheers!
