Ozzie Guillen has never been shy about patting himself on the back. That was evident on Wednesday when he called himself the Jack Nicholson of DePaul basketball:
i am to the Depaul blue demon basketball what Jack Nicholson is to the Lakers

Nothing says modesty quite like comparing yourself to a two-time Academy Award winner for Best Actor.
Guillen played for the Chicago White Sox from 1985-1997 and managed the team from 2004-2011. DePaul, which is also in Chicago, was a strong program during the late 70s and throughout the 80s, which may be when Guillen became a fan.
The Blizzard of Ozz has tweeted about his experiences at DePaul games in the past. He attended a game last February and also in November:
Thanks to Depaul awesome time at the game tonight great people.I will be back

Ozzie would have to attend DePaul games much more regularly to even come close to earning a Nicholson comparison. But, hey, DePaul has been pretty bad lately, so at least we can commend Ozzie for his loyalty.
The Blue Demons got waxed 79-58 by Louisville Thursday to drop to 11-17. They were 12-19 last season.
