(Title taken from the FANTASTIC D'Angelo's commercial)
David Ortiz...sometimes it feels like if he's not God Himself, he at least has a direct connection open to some higher power. The best thing about David Ortiz is that it seems like when he performs his late-inning heroics like he did tonight against Tampa Bay, breaking open a 6-5 lead for the Sox into a 10-5 gap going into the bottom of the ninth with a mighty grand slam, he does it with a personal intention, not just to do his job well, but to see smiles on our faces as fans. I don't know that, as has been said, David Ortiz is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy, but I can at least say I feel sincerely like David Ortiz himself wants us to be happy. Truly. And he follows through accordingly.
Thanks for the birthday present, Papi. Right back atya with the love.
