The most elegant speech in support of Boston

From today's pre-game ceremony at Fenway Park, delivered elegantly by David Ortiz, "Big Papi." I couldn't have said it any better myself.
UPDATE: It was blocked but now a new version exists. Enjoy it while you can.

Even better, the tweet on the official FCC account: @FCC - David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today's Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston - Julius (Genachowski, outgoing FCC chairman and a Harvard Law grad.)

Tragically the video is blocked in Canada. I heard it was, well, "eloquent", in a expletive-deleted kinda way.

Video blocked in Utah, too.

BLOCKED??!!.

Okay, fine. I was just looking for an excuse to use that link.

I really am blocked from seeing it, though.

Blocked based on a copyright claim by MLB Advanced Media. Probably erroneously, too.

It is on msn.com. They show the entire opening ceremonies . Neil Diamond came in on his own dime and offered to do Sweet Caroline live. Tears the whole time. But as a st. Louisan, it will be nice to get back to hating the Sox again. ;-)

Many words that were once "forbidden" in pubic are now acceptable. The f-words day appears to very close to it's turn in society.

AS George Carlin once stated:
the f-word is the most descriptive word in the english language.
It can be a verb, it can be a noun,
it can be an adjective.
