Ozzie Guillen Apologizes, Suspended 5 Games

Usually, I would say they're just words and it's no big deal, but Ozzie Guillen's comment on Fidel Castro were idiotic for the simple fact that the team he manages just built a new stadium in Little Havana and are depending on Cubans to fill it up. I'm not going to get into black comparisons to this, but you just can't do what Ozzie did. Not here.

Now, do I think Guillen should be fired? No. At the end of the day, we still live in America, not Cuba, and we can say whatever the hell we want, no matter how stupid. But I definitely agree with the suspension just for the fact that he pissed off his team's target for its core fan base. Unacceptable.
