I just read the Ozzie article in last week's Sports Illustrated, and found out that Ozzie writes a weekly column for El Universal, a Venezuelan newspaper. This week's column was on the Sox/Cubs rivalry, so I thought I'd post a (translated) link. The translation's a little rocky - Sox are the Average White, and the Cubs are the Puppies - but you get the idea. Pretty cool seeing Ozzie trying to explain the rivalry and interleague play...

But if they gain the series to us, the fanatics of the Puppies will be so happy as if they had gained the World-wide Series. That enthusiastic it is this rivalry. Although I know that the readers of the United States do not read this column
Oops.... :D:

Hahaha - I found a couple of older columns in the newspaper's archives, and the translation of this article might be the best one! From an earlier article during spring training:

Good, I say who I spoke sure because the press until made some jokes about my very particular way say the things, using many jokes to them, one that another one groserķa, but mainly calling the things by its names, without tapujos nor average inks. Work happened translator of Iguchi, that in a point of the meeting had the eyes that seemed two fried eggs, I do not know if it were because it did not understand anything, or because it understood too much and it did not believe what it was listening.
That's gold, Jerry!

The translations make Ozzie sound like Yoda!

In the most recent article he says that Sports Illistrated published his email, and the amount of responses blew it up....
He says for Venezuelans that want to know the intensity for the Cubs- Sox series, imagine the Caracas-Magallanes rivalry in Venezuela, and multiply the emotion by 3. And we all know how intense that Caracas-Magallanes thing is..........
