(C)Astro Fans Tweak Guillen, Win At Life

May 9, 2012 – 11:15 pm by Hickey

Finally, someone answered the gauntlet that I raised a few weeks ago when I hoped some opposing fanbase would greet Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen dressed as Fidel Castro.

According to Chicago Tribune writer Paul Sullivan’s official Facebook page,the above-pictured group of Houston Astro fans were up to the task Tuesday night. They showed up in beard-and-beret garb to heckle Guillen, who infamously earned a suspension earlier this season by praising the dictator.

Unfortunately, the Astros had as much tolerance for these guys dressing as Castro as MLB did for Guillen speaking about him in a flattering manner. According to fan John Egbert’s Facebook page–he’s one of the faux-bearded fellows in the picture — security removed them from Minute Maid Park in the fifth inning after they were shown on television.

According to Facebook Egbert is a Purdue grad, so this move makes him the third-greatest Boilermaker ever behind Neil Armstrong and Drew Brees and slightly ahead of neck-bearded Kyle Orton. And that’s about it for the list of great Boilermakers.

But hey, some things in life are worth the ejection. And this has to be one of them.

  7. I’m just tweaking Purdue the way these guys tweaked Ozzie. I’m aware there’s a long list of impressive Purdue grads. As a Hoosier I simply am not allowed to admit it.

    And I am stunned that someone who can’t spell the word scary is afraid of Obama. Simply stunned.

  8. Am I reading this right they were ejected because of what they wore? I’ve seen worse at a game and they were not thrown out.

    Great job Houston if this is true you really LOST a fan…

    This is AMERICA!!! Right???

    Great society we live in. Everyone else can say or wear what they want….

    This is a disturbing trend in America.

  14. Thank you so much for protesting against Ozzie Guillen, and just in case, I am sharing with you the “FIRE GUILLEN” video recorded during the game between the Miami Marlins and the Arizona Diamondbacks (April 27/2012).
