Rhymes with 'bag.'

Another reason to hate the Wipe Sux.

Angry with a recent column by Mariotti critical of Guillen's handling of
recently demoted relief pitcher Sean Tracey and upset with Mariotti over past
columns, Guillen said to reporters when referring to Mariotti before Tuesday's
game, "What a piece of [expletive] he is, [expletive] fag."

Guillen goes on to explain that in his country, 'fag' doesn't mean 'fag.'

Guillen defended his use of the term "fag" by saying this about homosexuals and the use of the word in question: "I don't have anything against those people. In my country, you call someone something like that and it is not the same as it is in this country.''

Guillen said that in his native Venezuela, that word is not a reference to a person's sexuality, but to his courage. He said he was saying that Mariotti is "not man enough to meet me and talk about [things before writing].''

Well, no, Ozzie. Since you became an American citizen, the United States is your country. And here in America, words mean things.

So *is* Mariotti gay?

Everyone missed the best part of columnist Greg Couch's followup:

He also said that he has gay friends, goes to WNBA games, went to the Madonna concert and plans to attend the Gay Games in Chicago.

Heh heh. Goes to WNBA games. I love that.
