Just So We’re All On The Same Page, Ozzie Guillen Is Aware He Is Not A Princess

Things are not going very well in the magical, fairy tale kingdom of White Sox Land. Ozzie Guillen addressed Chicago White Sox GM Ken Williams’ statement that he is losing patience with the White Sox in trademark Ozzie Guillen fashion. First of all, he is well aware of the fact he is not some fancy princess:

From the Chicago Sun-Times (via Hardball Talk):

I think I do what I can do every day to make this ball club work. It’s something I believe if this thing don’t work, I’m not a princess or an icon or not that great. If the team don’t work the way it [should] be working, I’ll be the first one to be blamed. That’s the way this thing works in baseball or any sport. You don’t produce, it’s easy to fire one guy or two or three guys than 25.

Huh. So I guess my Disney Princess-themed surprise birthday party for Ozzie should be considered a no-go? That’s a real bummer. What am I going to do with all this glitter?
