Saturday, the Chicago White Sox blew a lead against the Detroit Tigers, giving up 12 unanswered runs. Afterwards, Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen went into a CLASSIC tirade.

Guillen was furious at his players who were watching college football on the White Sox clubhouse tv monitors following a double-digit loss. That led to this outburst:

”It’s not because we’re out of the pennant. I’ve been dealing with this for how many months — six months? Dealing with this for the next two, three days, five six or whatever is left, I’m not going to tolerate. If they think the season is over for them, yes. If they think the season is over for me, no.

”And I’m going to make it clear. It’s a bunch of [expletive] out there watching football games like a piece of [expletive] with no pride the way they play the [expletive] game, and that’s embarrassing. If you don’t have pride to play this game and you don’t care about it, get another job because I know I’m going to be all over the stinking place when I talk about this.

”I’m not in a pennant race, but at least I have some pride and at least I have something to fight for and at least I have something to show up to this ballpark and play [for]. And when you go out there and you turn your TV on and watch stupid [expletive] football when those [expletive] football players don’t give a [expletive] about you, that’s embarrassing. We’ve got how many games? Seven games they’ve got to put their [expletive] together.

”I don’t mind losing games. That’s part of the game. But when you lose games and you don’t even care about it, we’re going to have problems. I run this ballclub, and I’m going to run this ballclub the way I want to. If they don’t want me here, I’ll get another job, or get me other players. But getting your ass kicked like that, then all of a sudden you’re watching football games, that’s a bunch of [expletive].”
