David Ortiz uses choice word during pregame speech
Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz's pregame speech at Fenway Park on Saturday was, shall we say, candid.
Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, as part of the pregame tributes, remembrances and celebrations before Saturday's game against the Royals, was handed the microphone for a speech. What he said was standard and fitting stuff for a time, but then Ortiz submitted to what can be characterized as a "moment of striking candor."
By that we mean 37-year-old Ortiz used a word that probably would've gotten 12-year-old Ortiz in serious trouble -- "Suck for a while on this bar of Lifebuoy," kind of trouble. Before we point you to the footage of his speech, a word of warning: therein lies NSFW profanity. OK, with that warning -- that a naughty word will be uttered -- laid out, here's the YouTube link.
"It just came out," Ortiz said after the game of his choice in words. "If i offended anyone, I apologize."
So, appropriately defiant or not fit for a family occasion such as a weekend day game?
