Ozzie disses Bush

New American/White Sox skipper/Hugo Chavez chum Ozzie Guillen has chosen vacation over a White House visit. Mayor Daley is disappointed that Guillen is vacationing in the Dominican Republic with his wife, Ibis, and their youngest son, Ozney, instead of visiting with President Bush on Monday. As with everything else, Guillen doesn't care what others think.

In a world where very few athletes make any kind of political statements, it's nice to see some of the Sox are political. In fact, the best paragraph in the story is the last one: Sox general manager Ken Williams said he decided to make the Washington trip, but only after thinking long and hard about it because he differs with President Bush on the war in Iraq.

Go Sox!

I have read that Ozzie actually dislikes Chavez quite a lot and has made anti-Chavez statements. Of course if you know Ozzie who knows if he means what he says.

I'm not much of a baseball guy (I'm neither Cubs nor Sox at this point). But now that I now a little more about the boys in black, I'm going to jump on the Sox bandwagon.
Do I have permission from the Sox fans out there?
