David Ortiz Bashes Pinatas In This JetBlue Commercial

I started college in the Boston area in 2004, and that was a great time to be there as a sports fan. The Red Sox broke the Curse of the Bambino, winning their first World Series since 1918. Many of the biggest postseason hits came from late-blooming superstar David Ortiz, AKA “Big Papi”, who had literally been picked up from the scrap heap after being released by the Minnesota Twins in late 2002. Fast forward to 2016, and Ortiz is playing in his last season. It’s always sad to see formerly great athletes stick around for too long and see their skills rapidly fade. But that isn’t the case at all for David Ortiz. By a whole lot of metrics, he’s on pace for his best season ever, as well as one of the best all-time final seasons. None of that really has to do with this JetBlue ad, but I just like talking about baseball. Anyway, Big Papi bashing pinatas and ruining kids’ birthday parties is just as amusing as it sounds. But yeah, it probably isn’t a viable retirement plan.
