David Ortiz is an easy target for jokes and he’s fine with that. It’s part of why he agreed to do the roast Thursday night at the House of Blues in Boston. Unfortunately, the people of Boston are apparently too sensitive to hear what was said in the roast.
NESN intended to air the roast this weekend, but according to the Boston Globe, that will not be happening now or ever.
The regional sports net has pulled the show because of the vulgar nature of many of the jokes told Thursday night. Go figure that Bill Burr, Lenny Clarke and Sarah Tiana would have a clean show for the people of Boston.
In a 14-inning game Buehrle came on in relief and eventually tallied a save. He apparently did so with a pretty solid buzz.
In an article he wrote for The Player Tribune Buehrle said he chugged, like three beers … Max, prior to coming into the game in the 14th inning. Definitely no more than three, though. I swear, he continued.
Baseball does have its own beer leagues but this may be getting a little ridiculous. But hey, if a guy can go out and save a game with a nice little buzz, more power to him right?
The White Sox would go on to win the series in four games over the Houston Astros. It was the White Sox first World Championship since 1918. To this day it is the Astros’ only World Series appearance.
