White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen Joins Twitter, MLB Holds Its Breath

We wouldn't quite call them oil and water, but it seems like Twitter and sports just haven't mixed well. The NFL put its foot down with Twitter last fall, NBA players have been busted for using it during games, and Andy Roddick was involved in a microblogging controversy during last year's U.S. Open tennis tournament.

Now, consider the scenarios that could result if somebody like firebrand Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen joined the social-networking site. According to an Associated Press report on Huffington Post, Sox general manager Ken Williams is not real thrilled about the idea. Williams said it all to the Chicago Sun-Times, while really making nothing clear. "No comment... and make sure you write that it is a no comment with a headshake from side to side," he said.

Guillen sent his first tweet on Tuesday. It wasn't full of salty language or controversial tales. In fact, none of Guillen's tweets have been -- yet. They're pretty boring. Guillen even seems happy. But we're just waiting for the season to get going and for the Sox to lose a few games. Guillen's top will surely blow, resulting in a geyser of explicative-filled tirades in choppy English. Now, thanks to his Twitter account, we won't miss a single rant or rave. [From: AP on Huffington Post and Chicago Sun-Times]
