The most tenured Red Sox to date, ten-year veteran David Ortiz was handed the microphone in front of a packed house Saturday at Fenway Park. It was his first game back from a heel injury. His speech was short and to the point…
“This jersy that we wear today it doesn’t say Red Sox, it say Boston. This is our f—— city. And no one is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong.”
There has been some chatter of the language that he used considering it was nationally televised and children were in the stands. Big deal.. it’s not like kids haven’t heard the “f” word before, they’ve heard it in their own homes, schools, in the neighborhood, in music, wherever…it did NOT scar them, they’ll be okay.
Big Pappi said how he felt, it was from the heart, and it’s not anything different that any red-blooded American, from the white-collar executive of Wall Street to the blue-collar factory worker in Smalltown USA and everyone in between hadn’t felt since Monday.
The FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, tweeted out “David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today’s Red Sox game. I stand with Big Pappi and the people of Boston.”-Julius.
If you didn’t feel how Ortiz did, who by the way is from the Dominican Rebublic…then you best get your passport, and get the hell out OUR country!
Big Pappi went 2 for 4 and the Red Sox won 4-3 over Kansas City.
