First I would like to share what Ozzie Guillen had to say about the White Sox before last night’s game.
“We won it a couple years ago, and we’re horseshit. The Cubs haven’t won in 100 years, and they’re the fucking best. Fuck it, we’re good. Fuck everybody. We’re horseshit, and we’re going to be horseshit the rest of our lives, no matter how many World Series we win. We are the shit of Chicago. We’re the Chicago shit. We have the worst owner. The guy’s got seven fucking rings, and he’s the fucking horseshit owner.”
Just once I would love to see Francona fly off the handle and have one of these tantrums. How funny would it be to see him just go off on Dan Shaughnessy?
“Well Dan. Ellsbury had a strained fucking knee if you bothered to read the injury report so that’s why I had Coco in the line-up. Remember Theo signed this fucking guy with the expectation that he’d replace fucking Damon in center. I don’t run the fucking front office, I do what I can with the guys they give me. So pull your fucking head out of your orange haired ass and get a fucking clue!”
That really would be awesome.
A huge welcome to Heidi Watney who apparently is the new Tina Cervasio. Now the question becomes, who’s hotter?
I say gentleman prefer blondes and I’m sticking by my guns on that. The deciding factor was that Tina’s doing Yankees and Mets games now. You never go from Boston to New York. It’s common sense.
Oh and the Celtics start their series tonight against the Cavaliers.
I made the same mistake everyone in the country did in assuming that the Celts would sweep the Hawks. So now this begs the question of whether you think the Atlanta series was a sign of things to come, or a fluke?
Bottom line, I say a fluke. The 2000 Lakers didn’t win a road game and they won the NBA Title that year so I’m not terribly worried if the C’s can’t win a road game. But I think that the Hawks team was just a bad match-up for the Celtics. They were very athletic and they pushed the tempo. Their bench played out of their mind in Atlanta and shit their pants in Boston.
I think the Atlanta series served as a huge wake up call to the Celts and Doc Rivers. Notice that Cassell played a whopping eight minutes in game seven? I really want to call it as Celtics in five, but I think the Cavaliers may push them to six.
Celtics in six.
