Zambrano Loves the Cubs, and Sox
Carlos Zambrano told the Sun-Times that while he loves the Cubs, he is also a White Sox fan and has been since he was a little kid. He said that he couldn’t imagine pitching for another team, but if he ever did, he’d want it to be on the South Side.
Now Cubs fans might be pissed about this, but really there isn’t a reason to get worked up. Carlos is obviously one of the most intense competitors we have ever seen and you could never question his commitment to winning for this team. Hopefully he never moves on, but if he does, the White Sox would be an acceptable destination. Just keep him out of St. Louis.
The best part of the article, in my opinion, was when Zambrano talked about how he was good friends with Ozzie Guillen. Tell me this isn’t absolutely perfect.
He took a seat in a seaside restaurant. Then he heard a voice boom — in Spanish — from across the room.
”Hey, Crazy, what are you doing here?”
Zambrano wheeled around and found Sox manager Ozzie Guillen glaring at him.
Guillen went on to praise Carlos, calling him a great person and family man, and a fantastic competitor on the field.
Now all I can think about is a sitcom starring Carlos and Ozzie, I just can’t think of a good name for it. Cray-Z’s, Wild and Crazy Guys, the Ozz Couple. Put any decent ideas in the comments.
I’m just saying that these two guys would be hilarious together. Ozzie pissing people off by saying whatever comes into his crazy head and Carlos taking off his belt ready to pound anyone to get Ozzie’s back. Then they would get in little spats and Z would throw pitches at Ozzie in the dugout from the mound during the games. If Flavor of Love can get on TV, I don’t see how this wouldn’t.
