Did anyone else see it? I honestly don't watch Mad TV. I was flipping channels and there it was. It was pretty funny.

That was good for a laugh. I thought it was kinda funny that it was "following" a Mariners/Sox game.

Do you have a link to the actual clip, or could you at least post the premise, please?

Think Ozzie in a post game interview following an 11-1 loss to the worst team in baseball.

Perhaps the best onion piece on sports this season:

I didn't see the Mad tv bit, but it sounds like the jokes may have been in line with the link above. The bit is very vulgar, so if you get offended at such things, I'd avoid it.

Ozzie is very good for baseball. He's a good in game manager and has such a nutty persona, it makes the game different.

The best quote from the sketch is, "**** you with a ****ing light bulb!"

I happened to tune in to MAD this past Saturday (09/20/08), and I saw this skit. I thought it was a great spoof, all-around, and figured it was worth sharing.

Should this YouTube link go down, the official web site over at FOX.com will have the footage. It's the "Audrina Partridge" episode. The sketch aired around 10:20 CDT, so check around 12 minutes or so with the online video.

It's been a while, so if there are WSI policy infractions here, I apologize. Besides, if I don't see it, it's not illegal.

Here's a video of Johnny Sanchez of MADTV imitating Ozzie Guillen. Enjoy. LOL.

you'd think that maybe they could run out and get an actual Sox hat and jacket.

I'm sure they're trying to avoid ruffling any of MLB's feathers.

SNL has used MLB logos in skits before, but none of them were as offensive as this...I didn't find the skit funny at all by the way.

Its not SNL, its MADTV.

I agree though. The sketch was amusing maybe for the first 45 seconds. After that, its just running the same caricature into the ground.

Yep. And an 11-1 loss at that. I did not see the sketch in it's entirety, but I saw the very end of it. I have no idea if it was good or not. But since it was on Madtv, I guess that it probably was not.

It would be a lot funnier if the actor would have actually used a thick accent to make it sound like English isn't his first language.

Overall, not that funny. Done differently, IMO it could have been hilarious.

The end was funny.

It really wasn't that funny but I love the fact that Ozzie has become a little more popular. Probably not in a good way but he deserves recognition any way possible.

The white sock in the diamond is also reversed from what it is in the actual logo- the toe is pointing to the right, rather than the left.

Just watched it and found it amusing.

I know Ozzie Guillen's ESL teach from his minor league Padres days, and found him to be a gentleman who I never heard utter a profanity.

Ozzie is much funnier than that skit portrays him. He defies parody because he is routinely so far over the top, and almost always funny.
