Twitter And The Difference Between Ozzie and Lou
Ozzie Guillen has chosen to enter the 21st century in the way that brings him the most attention: he signed up for Twitter. Although rumor has it his sons are posting a lot of his tweets, the bottom line is that he has jumped on another opportunity to make his ridiculous thoughts and feelings known to the whole world. Here are a few examples of his tweets, please forgive him if they make little to no sense:
going to eat in half hour why dye no have a job ?
3 day of Spring Training and im already boreddddddd
what I saw on the field today was a lot of grass…
This post is not a commentary on how good of a coach Ozzie or anyone else is, its just a look at the difference in personalities between the two Chicago managers. Take a look at Lou Piniella’s hilarious reaction to the news that Ozzie is on Twitter:
“What is Twitter?” Piniella said Wednesday.
Informed that it was a social media outlet that gives users an opportunity to convey their thoughts in a sentence or two, the Cubs manager said: “Really? Ozzie, he needs more space than that.”
“First of all, I don’t know how to Twitter,” he said. “And second of all, I’m not going to learn how to Twitter.”
“But I’m really not a Facebook or Twitter guy,” he said. “I’m a prime-rib-and-baked-potato guy. I hate to say that, but it’s true.”
Oh Lou, your folksy one-liners always amuse us. So Lou wants to have a prime rib dinner while Ozzie would rather broadcast his nonsense to the whole world to try to get more attention. Okay Sox fans, this is your cue to flip out in the comments.
