#tbt #FenwayPark in 2009 in Honor of #DavidOrtiz Retirement

#BigPapi announced yesterday that this coming season will be his last. He will retire as a Red Sox player, which is just as it should me. This is my sister and I at a special game for David: he'd been slumping since the end of the previous season. After my sister and I rubbed Buddha's Belly for luck on my Buddha Medallion and chanted "Ommmm" while he was at bat -- whack! The homerun slump was over. The people in our section thought we were crazy at first. After it worked, everyone got in on rubbing Buddha's belly. And wouldn't you know, Jason Varitek, Mike Lowell and Jason Bay all hit homeruns that inning, too! Full details of the historic game can be found here:
