Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz got the Federal Communications Commission’s seal of approval after he dropped an F-bomb in a pre-game speech that was broadcast on live television. Ortiz’s R-rated remarks were delivered on the field at Fenway Park before the first Red Sox home game since Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.
(FCC chairman Julius Genachowski immediately gave the network a pass on the language violation. See below.)
On top of the Ortiz speech, Neil Diamond flew himself to Boston this morning and offered to perform the Fenway Park standard Sweet Caroline in person.
Boston, you’re great. Always have been, always will be.
