    All I know is Papi is looking good early this regular season. But you cant be happy with that, so you need to have your issue. Hope it makes you happy.

    Wow.... looks like the sports rags didn't have anything else to write about. Boy are they gonna be screwed when Ortiz retires.


    Just when I thought I couldn't love Big Papi anymore..... he should enjoy all this banter, it is doubly exciting watching the haters get all stirred up.

    Ohhhhhh..... I wonder what next week will bring :-)

    I'm kind of confused here....

    So the President takes a photo with the Red Sox holding up a Sox shirt, the Red Sox used numerous photos during their trip to the Whitehouse that they tweeted and posted. Aren't they using a few of the pictures with Obama as advertising?  Does the Whitehouse object to the numerous photos used on @redsox ???

     Aren't the Red Sox making money off the various shots of the team at the Whitehouse? The Red Sox are a business after all.

    Go to @redsox on Twitter and check out the numerous photos the Red Sox are using to their advantage. Then get back to me.

    A picture with a veteran from Walter Reed would have been more impressive.  Are there any out there with David and a vet taken with his new samsung?

    Ortiz himself put this story in the proper context when he spoke about meeting with a soldier at Walter Reed Medical Center after the White House visit.

    “One thing that happened to me is one young man, 26 right now,” he said. “He got both of his legs blown up with a bomb. His spirit was so good. Me and [Dustin] Pedroia were looking at each other like, ‘Seriously?’ There are so many people complaining about stupid things in life.

    “The best thing that happened to me is going to look at this guy because it made me a better human being. I had a really good time there yesterday and getting to hang out with him and people doing their thing for all of us.

    “Everybody should go hang out with these people. This guy is sitting on the bed with no legs and he was acting like he was the happiest man on planet Earth just because we went out and saw him and talked to him.”

    Speaking of Samsung, I used to work for them in Korea.  My hours were Monday through Saturday, 9am to 7pm.  Frown

    I guess there are no pictures of Ortiz with a vet from Walter Reed.  I guess Samsung wasn't paying out for them.

    If you were to remove all of the clothes, cars, meals and trinkets that star athletes receive as promotional advertisement, the poor fellows would be naked, hungry and bored.  Papi signed a deal with Samsung recently.  That doesn't exactly rock my ethics boat.  He used that phone to take a selfie with the president.  I don't get it.  If one takes issue with a lack of respect in taking a selfie with the POTUS, I can understand that (I personally think it was cool).  But, this whole Samsung promo selfie thing is a crazy fabrication of nonsense.

    I was looking for a selfie taken by Ortiz with his samsung.  There were plenty of group pictures of the team with the Pres., but Ortiz managed to get the selfie in with his samsung of which he was getting paid to do.  That is a nice picture and he is nice to have gone but I still would have been more impressed with a selfie with a soldier over the president, which seems to have made him money from samsung

    The real point is that Obama and his administraion are using the Red Sox likeness to gain political favor from Sports fans!  They should be paying Papi just for showing up to their litle garden party...After all there is a Red Sox Nation not an Obama-Nation!
