David Ortiz certainly has very few filters and that became readily apparent with his speech before the crowd after the Marathon bombing. Ortiz spoke to the crowd and dropped the magical “F-Bomb” and under the circumstances, I found it quite appropriate. Ortiz simply stated what we were all feeling.
Why stop with just one?
Ortiz interruption of a John Farrell press conference was hilarious. Farrell was attempting to conduct a give and take with the media when a semi enraged Ortiz interrupted since he had been told that Farrell was behind the change in a scoring decision that cost Ortiz a hit. A little investigation showed – to know surprise – that the real culprit was Dustin Pedroia – a noted instigator.
A second one is where Ortiz honors Pedroia during a chat by stealing second base and presenting it to Pedroia. What it really showed is the close bonding and mutual respect the long time teammates had for each other.
With Ortiz, there have been many montages of his career with Boston and the unforgettable moments The above are just a few that I enjoyed.
