David Ortiz writes a long piece about the PED accusations and how they haunt him to this day. And, of course, the Globe's own Shank is right in the middle of it all:

In 2013, I came off the DL and started hot. My first 20 games I was hitting like .400. And the reporter with the red jheri curl from The Boston Globe comes into the locker room says, "You're from the Dominican. You're older. You fit the profile of a steroid user. Don’t you think you’re a prime suspect?"

Jared Wickerham captured David Ortiz before the game.

He has no time to wait around for ball 4. Meanwhile, last night up in the broadcast booth, the boys spent a good part of the early innings discussing Jerry Remy's socks. Complete with close ups of said socks (and his loafers).

Big Papi (David Ortiz) says "This is our fucking city" at Fenway Park

Suck it, Shank.

Dan Shaughnessy had his yearly Ortiz hategasm today, erupting in a paroxysm of disgust for the player whose fundamental evil for some reason only he is able to recognize. But he was apparently a paragraph short in his recounting of every last horrible thing David Ortiz has ever done, so he threw this in at the end:

Last, and least, the rules say you’re not supposed to use the f-bomb when you are on live television. When David Ortiz told the world, “This is our [expletive] city!,’’ we made T-shirts commemorating the phrase, and the chairman of the FCC tweeted his approval.

Go up 3-2 as Ortiz proves unstoppable. And no bizarre ending to the game.

Michael Dyer notes:

It has been 34,745 days since the Sox clinched a WS at home. TV didn't exist then. WW1 was still going on. Wednesday can't come soon enough

I think that deserves a Castiglionish "Can you believe it?!?"

Oh, and the cop celebrating the home run? Chief Daniel Linskey reports it was Officer Stephen Horgan.

You know, this one. Deadspin posts copies of all the complaints filed with the FCC over both the speech and the FCC commissioner's subsequent affirmation of Big Papi's words. They don't all have addresses attached, but of the ones that did, there were none from Boston (one from Westfield, though).

Big Papi is selling memorial bats with net proceeds going to the One Fund. The blue bats feature the phrase "This is our f-ing city" (yes, written just like that).

Specifically, in not finding the nearest dumpster and tossing a certain Globe columnist into it headfirst after said columnist (one guess which one) accused him of taking steroids because, after all, he's old and Dominican (yes, he went there). Not linking to the column because I don't feel like giving him my two cents worth of Web traffic, but it should be easy enough to find for anybody who can log into bostonglobe.com.

Later, Neil Diamond took the field to lead the singing of "Sweet Caroline."

Don't even think of complaining to the FCC. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski tweeted after the game:

Boston Police report issuing a citation for "improperly made left turn" to a man who caused a minor collision at the intersection of Boylston and Ipswich streets shortly before 3 p.m. yesterday.

Police do not identify the driver who was at fault in a report longer than for most murders, but an educated Boston news consumer should probably be able to figure it out in less than 34 tries.

The Taiwanese have made a cartoon about it:

Thanks, Kaz!

Which we learn in this interview with his tailor, Egleston Square's own Rey Pimentel, who got the idea to embroider the likeness of a scorpion on a suit sleeve for Ortiz after visiting his house.

Yes, let's all think "2004," shall we?

It's probably a good thing baseball players aren't hockey players when it comes to landing punches.
