Censors side with Ortiz on pregame ‘F-bomb’
David Ortiz added to a raw, emotional pregame ceremony Saturday at Fenway Park, by “pumping up” the city of Boston after the bombings at the Boston Marathon last Monday by freelancing on some commentary about the grit of the city of Boston.
“This is our f-ing city! And nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong! Thank you,” Ortiz said on the PA system as thousands of fans cheered him on.
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) backed Ortiz’ comments yesterday.
“David Ortiz spoke from the heart at (Saturday’s) Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston,” tweeted FCC chairman Julius Genachowski.
