    There seems to be some bellyaching today about Papi's money grubbing corporate moves.....comments? cant believe no one even referenced this....

     

    btw looks like Big Papi Samsung threw the president under the bus this time

    around....

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/04/white-house-objects-to-big-papi-samsung-selfie-with-president-obama/




    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




    He took a selfie with Bush too in 2004, no money there. I think he would have done it anyway, except this time Samsung paid him.

    I could care less if a sports star makes $$ off endorsements. what a non-story.

    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 whole championship team to the whitehouse thing, no matter what sport, is a big advertisement for said team AND the prez.

    The "non story" now has two posts by you and three pages.  It lit up twitter and a countless numbers of articles have been written.

    It is not advertisement for a second term President.  In 2004 I agree it showed Bush's human gentle side at a time when he much needed it.

    Please don't delete my post for disagreeing with you.

    Papi's chutzpah run amok.  Great but definitely tacky selfie that now brings smashing to the White House.

    Its a non story to me personally. Of course its a big blown out of proportion story in the media. Thats what they do. try and make a big deal out of something thats not. Its how they make their $$.

     People can disagree without being disrespectful. I have no issue with your response.

    This is silly. He has a deal with Samsung. This photo was not part of the deal. While Samsung has benefited pretty much solely from the faux contraversy, they did not pay him to take the photo. As a matter of fact if no one found out about the deal with Ortiz and Samsung no one would have even known/cared it was a Samsung phone.

    wow a link to a Globe article gets removed... that is a first


    and mine. I guess one of the mods is a Bill Maher fan

    I've never heard Bill Maher say anything that wasn't offensive, painful and ugly, with a half smile on his face. He would be dangerous, if he was in any position of power. Thankfully, he just thinks he's funny

    +1, Joe. Everyone thought it was great, including the White house, until they found out about deal.  I guess O'bama won't be signing a book deal, once he's out of office.

    This is a "much to do about nothing" event...... It was great to see our SOX at the W H in an enviorment of fun & acomplishment..... As far as the "snit" about the "selfie", I would say that both participants got mileage out of it !!!




    Welcome back billy.  I have to admit, the board has been a little dull without you.

    Sorry, just couldn't resist since this thread is about selfies. Tongue Out

    I don't like ortiz's outbursts but I like what he does at the plate.  I also believe in hard work and the american dream.  Ortiz has worked hard to get where he is, good for him.  He has a contract with samsung so he can make money.  Not a crime.

    I don't have a problem with what ortiz did but I do have a problem with the disrespect shown by the prez at a funeral.  I bet michelle had a thing or two to say about his behavior LOL!

    I've heard this a lot in the news lately, with various opinions. And I can't help wondering: Why would anyone give a rat's butt?

    '67, it wasn't a "funeral."


    This from CNN.com: "Inside the stadium, the atmosphere was celebratory, with people dancing, blowing vuvuzela plastic horns and singing songs from the anti-apartheid struggle."

     

    Oh, and here's another picture from the memorial service:

    I wouldn't mind at al, but the message feature isn't working. It was the link, ending in 94. I'll have PG catch up with you here, with his email, and he can send it to you. Hope all is well with you.
