David Ortiz Lets It Be Known That Boston Is Their “F-ing City”

David Ortiz, This Is Our City

In the Red Sox return to Fenway following the horrible events of last week, slugger David Ortiz wasn’t afraid to voice his passion for the city he calls home. While welcoming fans and his team back to Boston, Ortiz was given the mic and apparently an open floor. Ortiz gave a heartfelt thank you and speech on behalf of his Red Sox teammates and organization, but it’s really one word in particular that’s making waves. It’s the good ol, completely American F-bomb. Glad to see that the Dominican Republic-born turned American baseball star has his ‘Amurican’ roots firmly entrenched in some badass soil.¬† Thanks David!

Happy MLB Opening Day: Enjoy A Japanese-Based Baseball Video Game

Japanese Baseball Video Game

No clue where this came from or what the actual video game is called , but in a slow sports day other than opening day in major league baseball, (tune to Sportscenter and get your fix there.) It’s pretty funny to listen to narration at least. No offense will be taken if nobody bothers to click on this post. I’m reaching pretty far today.

Enter The Ridiculous Mind Of Jose Canseco (Via Twitter)

Jose Canseco, New Years Resolutions

While venturing through Twitter on New Years Day, one of the most ridiculous threads appeared before my very eyes. This thread came courtesy of former “Bash Brother” and admitted “juicer” Jose Canseco. If you already follow Canseco on Twitter, you may already be aware of his complete misinterpretation of his self-proclaimed “celebrity status” and misunderstanding of reality.

This is a great example of why you don’t do steroids children, not only do they get you kicked out of baseball and shrink your wee-wee, they also alter your thinking. Listed below are Mr. Canseco’s New Years resolutions, and you better believe he’s being completely serious in these. On a daily basis, Canseco tweets about helping out our government and one day being elected into some sort of political office so that he can “help.” He’s also been known to tweet many high-ranking MLB players and officials, lobbying for a roster spot for a major league club. Keep in mind, Canseco is 48-years old and hasn’t seen a major league pitch come across the plate since 2001.

Brian Wilson Likes To Keep It Creepy

Since we haven’t been granted the privilege of watching Brian Wilson dominating on the mound this season, we can turn to YouTube and catch up with our resident MLB weirdo. Wilson is recovering from Tommy John surgery, and what better way to spend it then with Sasquatch?

Bill Murray Elected To Minor League Baseball Hall Of Fame

Director of Fun and part-owner of the New York Yankees affiliates Charleston Riverdogs, Bill Murray, was elected to the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame this past weekend. The ceremony was held in Charleston, S.C. as part of the festivities for the SAL All-Star game. Naturally, Murray delivered some expected comedic relief, but with Yankees GM Brian Cashman and a collection of the All-Stars on hand for the speech, Murray delivered some words of wisdom for the young men. Murray was extremely complimentary of the level of talent currently competing in the league and voiced how proud he was to be a part of it.

As a Charleston resident, it’s always entertaining to catch Bill Murray, who is frequently in attendance at the games. It’s also been pretty awesome to be able to have the opportunity to speak with the comedy legend and take a few pictures. He’s a great ambassador for minor league baseball and the city of Charleston. Congrats to Bill Murray on this honor and make sure you keep your eye out for several Charleston Riverdogs like Tyler Austin and Dante Bichette Jr. as we fully expect them to be competing at the major league level soon.

Yankees Cervelli Comes Down With “Bieber Fever”

 

The New York Yankees are in trouble. They better hope and pray that Russell Martin stays healthy all season or that elite prospect Austin Romine, is major league ready soon, because backup catcher Francisco Cervelli has succumbed to “Bieber Fever.” Word on the street is that it’s dangerously contagious. If fellow Yankee teammates start doing Proactiv commercials, piercing both ears, wearing skinny jeans and vests, or styling their hair more metro-sexual then usual, it’s safe to say the fever has set in.
