Happy Anniversary: David Ortiz's Boston Strong f-bomb

It's April 20, 2014, which means that we're just 365 days removed from the f-bomb that shook Boston. Click here to watch the YouTube of David Ortiz's speech in Fenway Park exactly one year ago, but be warned that it contains naughty language that is perhaps unsuitable for children.

The line? "This is our f****** city!"

One might recall that Ortiz was making a speech in the days following the Boston Marathon bombing as the city of Boston banded together and made "Boston Strong" a rallying cry. Ortiz's line, while it offended some, became an integral part of the equation moving forward for the Red Sox.

Eventually, those "Boston Strong" Red Sox would go on to win the World Series. They had the beards and they had Boston Strong, but they also had "this is our f****** city."

Happy Anniversary, Big Papi.
