Ozzie Guillen Brings His Special Sauce To Miami; High Fives Fidel Castro

If there ever was an appropriate pseudo-famous family to base a reality television show on, it would have to be the Guillens, right? Ozney, Oney, Ozzie and Jr. are the loud-mouthed, brazen, untalented, drama-fused gifts that keep on not shutting up. They are the immature Cheez-It, never growing up, just getting more annoying with age. The Guillens are the Kardashians without the sex appeal or a Kanye crush.

Recently, Ozzie brought his special look-at-me magic to South Beach, explaining, "I respect Fidel Castro. You know why? Many people have tried to kill Fidel Castro in the last 60 years, yet that [SOB] is still there."

Ozzie isn't really into local politics or cultural awareness (remember the whole gay-Mariotti mess?), but saying that you respect a man that countless members of your new community fled from because of human right atrocities may not be the best move as a new manager of the hometown team of said community. I'm sure he was just misquoted, like all the other times he was misquoted when writers simply wrote down what he said.

"I'm against the way he [Castro] treats people and the way [he has treated] his country for a long time. I'm against that 100 percent," he said. "…The way this man [has been] treating people for the last 60 years."

See? It's all good, Cubans. He didn't mean what he said. He meant the other thing that he said. It's just part of our new favorite TruTV classic, Lost In Translation: The Guillens do South Beach.
