    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 :-)

     



    you apparently didnt read the article...it is a political story from abc news about how the white house was unhappy with Big papi Samsung for making money off of his selfie as part of his deal with his new boss....I gfuess that trumps the respect and office of the presidency....he should apologize and he probably will....that was low-class and confirms exactly what ive been saying about him...its all about him and his $$$$ before the team

    There were some tweets that the White House isn't happy. 

    "As a rule The White House objects to attempts to use the president's likeness for commercial purposes".

    The artice is by matt viser in the boston globe.

    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?

    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

    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.


    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!

    Hey Geo, other than making Bill-SFB seem like a genius, what is it about Papi that makes you so emotional? Are you a closet Spankee fan? Do you have a hood with 3 holes in it?



    Its a personal thing.  Papi stole all of Geo's chicken and beer back in 2011 and he just cant get over it.

    Were you just born?  This tradition has been going on for a long time with all sports.  The White House invites the championship team and could care less who from that team shows up.  Bush 43 had  fun with Manny not showing.  It is an annual thing and soon forgotten the next day.

    But you have a point, Obama will most likely use his picture with Ortiz on his next Presidential run.
