And on the Eighth Day God Created Ozzie Guillen...
Ozzie Guillen is the gift that keeps on giving. There are few personalities in baseball that provide that "Must See TV" moment. Personally, I think he's a giant ass clown, yet every time he speaks, tweets, or gives an interview, I listen intently. Today, Craig Calcaterra provides some juicy gossip that he'll be joining Fox Sports as an analyst for the World Series. This is almost too good to be true! Someone is actually willing to put their ass on the line in order to give millions Americans the right to watch the train wreck known as Ozzie Guillen on live television? I just can't believe it.
Apparently, Guillen “will work the pregame and postgame shows with Chris Rose and Eric Karros” and also “join Joe Buck and Tim McCarver as an analyst for late-inning strategy.” The second part is what I'm most excited about. I can't wait for the moment where Guillen finally cracks (probably halfway through Game 2), and he calls Tim McCarver "a fucking moron," or Joe Buck "an emotionless automoton." That will be the first time since Fox won the World Series broadcasting rights that anyone in America actually enjoys listening to their commentary.
