Lou Piniella And Ozzie Guillen Might Want To Stick To Managing

Jun 25th, 2008 // 7 Comments

As evidenced by this ad for a Chicago car dealership, which pits the Windy City’s lovable managerial duo in a rap battle that no one wins. (The Dugout hypothesizes what the director’s cut of the ad, featuring Jim “Word Up” Thome, might have been like.) Not sure what else to say about this, except that if it leads to Jerry Manuel getting it in his head that he should fire up his new charges/one-up Guillen by re-recording “Our Team, Our Time” I am definitely giving up on this season.

    And sadly, Ozzie raps about as good as he manages. At least he’s an entertaining interview.

    Don’t know if you’ve seen this Maura, but the guys who do the Dugout also do Sounds of the City.

    Same thing, only for music.

    I’m still trying to figure out how the Mets won 2 out of 3 against my Angels in my own backyard.

    Oh wow, I don’t care if the Sox and Cubs both make it to the World Series, that just ruins it forever….well that and the fact that I just rode home on a bus packed with idiotic Cubs fans trying to drink Old Style without the bus driver noticing…and then refusing to sit down and blocking the doors. Just because they only serve Old Style inside Wrigley, doesn’t mean you can’t drink something classier on the bus.

    I am embarrassed for all sides of my city. (And still not happy with last weekend.)

    @moomintroll: “Idiotic Cubs fans” is a redundant term.

    As a Cubs fan and a resident of Chicago, I apologize for everything in life ever.

  7. Between the Fiat 500 and the Alfa MiTo (to say nothing of the Lancia Ypsilon), Italy’s got plenty of Mini rivals on the road. But it could gain another, if emerging reports prove accurate in the long run. The rumors center around the revived De Tomaso. The dormant sportscar marque was recently acquired by one Gianmario Rossignolo, a former chief executive of Lancia who was previously linked to a take-over of Bertone. Rossignolo has some ambitious plans in place for his new company, acquiring a former Pininfarina factory in the Piedmont region of Italy, where he reportedly plans on building a line of sportscars, luxury sedans and sport-utes. Now reports suggest a premium hatchback to rival the Mini could be in the cards as well.
