(WSCR) Right or wrong, former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has a routine.
And he’s sticking to it. After every baseball game, win or lose, Guillen does the exact same thing.
“I go to the hotel bar, get drunk, sleep,” Guillen said before Thursday’s game with the Reds. “I don’t do anything else.
“I get drunk because I’m happy we win or I get drunk because I’m very sad and disturbed because we lose. Same routine, it never changes. It’s been the same routine for 25, 28 years. It doesn’t change. I don’t like to go out.”
Guillen said he may play golf in the morning before grabbing lunch, but after the game, it’s the same thing.
“I never get in trouble, you see that?” Guillen said. “I never leave the hotel. Nobody can call my wife and tell her they see Ozzie in this bar or place. … I never get in trouble, I don’t go out. If I got drunk and someone talked [smack] to me, there’d be a fight. I’m too little to fight. If I was [Giancarlo] Stanton’s size, I would be looking for fights. I can’t. I might get killed.”
