#tbt #DavidOrtiz 's "Lucky" Buddha Medallion

This silver Buddha Medallion necklace belonged to my Aunt Betty originally and was a handmedown to me when she moved out of Roslindale. I love this thing! I wore it on the day the Red Sox won the World Series in 2013, because I knew it was a piece of good luck for them. This is me on that day, October 30, 2013. Red cardigan for Red Sox, and Buddha, for David. Why is this Papi's good luck necklace? Ah, well, it all started in 2009 during a hitting slump for him. More about that, in the next post. Happy Retirment, David! We love you!  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_World_Series
