'Fag' slur earns Ozzie Guillen a trip to Gay Games

By RealJock Staff

In addition to attending sensitivity training after calling a Chicago Sun-Times columnist a "fag," Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said he will spend his off day, July 17, at the Gay Games.

Guillen, who has apologized for the slur, said he'd already planned to attend the LGBT community's version of the Olympics. Major League Baseball fined Guillen and ordered him to attend sensitivity training following his second public anti-gay slur in 10 months.

The Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club, a Chicago drag bar, named a drink after the infamous manager. It's called "The Effen Ozzie GuillenTini," made with fresh fruits and vodka, and topped with the Chicago Sun-Times sports section.

The bar created the drink to add some levity to the manager's situation. "What (Guillen) said was no big deal, and we wanted people to know it's time to get over it," John McCartney, the drink's creator, told UPI. The drink will be on the menu until baseball season ends.
