Why are you at a terminal reading this?
It’s beautiful! Get out and run around!
From the Times notebook:
– Guardado’s frustrated
– Everett has some odd views on Ozzie Guillen’s “fag” comment:
Everett believes that Mariotti should be held equally accountable for critical comments he makes in his guise as a columnist and television commentator.
“If you call me stupid, that’s derogatory,” he said. “Don’t just pick a certain word, because the world is sensitive to gay people. You call me stupid, you call me an idiot, people are sensitive to that.
“So don’t just single out a couple of words. You’ve got to take everything as a broad spectrum. You call a player stupid or ignorant, you just touched a subject you shouldn’t be touching. But they give you the right to say it because you’re media. Bull.”
Everett shared the enmity of his former manager toward Mariotti.
“Yeah, Ozzie talks a lot,” he said. “But at the same time, Jay Mariotti has a big mouth, too. If you want to tell people to be quiet, take his butt to sensitivity training.”
