    AND PRINT IT!!!!


    ''Right now, everyone in Chicago is making lineups, 'Call up this guy, call up that guy,''' Guillen said. ''If we had 50 people allowed on the roster, we could do that. That's what ticks me off about Chicago fans and Chicago media -- they forget pretty quick. A couple of days ago, we were the [bleep]ing best [bleep] in town, now we're [bleep].''

    Asked why that is, Guillen pulled no punches.

    ''Because maybe the manager is an ass[bleep],'' he replied.

    Guillen said that the only way the perception of the Sox ever would change is by winning, but even after they did in 2005, it hasn't taken long for it to wear off.

    ''We won it a couple years ago, and we're horse[bleep],'' Guillen said. ''The Cubs haven't won in 120 years, and they're the [bleep]ing best. [Bleep] it, we're good. [Bleep] everybody. We're horse[bleep], and we're going to be horse[bleep] the rest of our lives, no matter how many World Series we win. We are the bitch of Chicago. We're the Chicago bitch. We have the worst owner -- the guy's got seven [bleep]ing rings, and he's the [bleep]ing horse[bleep] owner.''

    "We are the bitch of Chicago."

    Coming soon to a pallister side saddle near you.
  4. And, in typical White Sox fashion, he has to say something about the Cubs.

    Worry about your own team, Oz. Then again, White Sox fans can't do that. They're the Canada of baseball.

    I'll tell ya one f*ing thing....

    Honestly, I'm just pleased the Sox made it to May without being mathematically eliminated.

    I still can't believe Canada won a war a few years ago.

    That explains why Ozzie let loose in Toronto.

    Speaking of which, the TV poll question during the Sox game was: who is your favorite Ontario-born-or-bred musical act?

    A. Neil Young
    B. The Tragically Hip
    C. Rush
    D. Avril Lavigne

    Anyone who knows Sox fans will not be surprised it was C, in a landslide.

    I would have voted "B".

    And, yes, Lyman: that was a great line.

    OK, fine, if the Sox are the Canada of baseball, then that makes the Cubs what, Eritrea?
