What Ozzie Guillen's learned

In Esquire's running What I've Learned series, luminaries like Albert Einstein, Jimmy Carter and Walter Cronkite share the wisdom they've accumulated over a lifetime of success.

Yesterday's subject, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, didn't disappoint.

Ozzie on what makes a house a home:

"In the eighties and nineties, people made a lot of money and built houses. The first thing they put in their houses was a gym. In my house, the first thing I built was a bar. The second thing I built was another bar."

Ozzie on his other half:

"What attracted me to my wife is she's hot. She's also nice, she's a great mom -- but that comes after she's hot."
