    Looks like some sort of "cigarette lighter" we would but at the old Jack's Joke Shop in Downtown Boston and use to "spark up a bowl" of weed or hash.. back in the day.

    Just sayin'

    From a generally very reliable friend... the wife spends 99% of her time here.

    She's got to be aware that he's been a skirt chaser forever. His fame makes that easier. Who knows what arrangement they have?

    Me... I'm betting there's no divorce. It's just part of being married to him.

    The difference between a 1st-world <bleep>hole
    and a 3rd-world <bleep>hole is that
    in the 3rd-world <bleep>hole,
    storing a pistol and matching magazine
    in the same clear plastic bag
    such that a corner of the magazine
    touches a grip panel on the pistol
    does not constitute a "loaded weapon".

    Advantage: Dominican Republic.

    Could very well be just the media for whatever reason deciding to run with these stories. Obviously ortiz would have been in the news anyway, but things seem to go into spurts. Pitbull attacks, kids falling out of windows, etc. You have 2 weeks of a seemingly nonstop rash of events and then they stop. I'm guessing they aren't actually stopping, it's just the news moving on to something else.

    Wasn't it Bogg's wife who tried to run him over with a pick up truck?

    It being a Spanish culture country, I expect that the police will beat confessions out of most of them. A couple of the key actors will then be shot trying to escape.

    Like that scene in Casablanca where Captain Renault is trying to decide if Ugarte killed himself or was shot trying to escape.

    When one runs for political office their personal life becomes fair game. And I suspect Mr. Ortiz would prefer some of his personal life stay off the radar.

    Hey Big Poopie, I've got some advice for you....
    Never rub another mans rhubarb.
    You can think about this while you dine on ice chips as your intestines heal.
    No rice and beans for you.

    I told my wife that if the rumors panned out that Ortiz was messing with a druglord's wife and he ordered the hit, they'd cover it up and say it was mistaken identity. And sure enough, they came out last night on the news that it was a case of mistaken identity. Yeah, right...

    Nah. The police aren’t claiming that. The shooter is, so he doesn’t get lynched by the other inmates.

    Agreed, though. There will be coverups galore by all kinds of people, not least the Red Sox. Nobody wants to admit St David could possibly have a flaw.

    Like everything else in life, and especially the world of $ports... cuz for some reason the American public thinks sports celebrities are "important", and hence you have, in some cases (translation: "especially in the NBA) ghetto gang banger thugs providing much of the "valuable entertainment" for the paying public willing to shell out hundreds of bucks a seat to watch the chest-pounding thugs do the spinning slam-dunk routine, a value is placed on you, and when a "commodity" that you "own" (ballplayers/etc) steps out of line/crosses the line/screws up etc? If you're TOO valuable to drop like a hot potato? They'll (ownership/league etc) huddle up and decide how "best" to mitigate the "crisis".
    One example (out of the hundreds over the year, iin the world of sports alone, not to mention Hollywood etc):
    Remember when marginally talented (by MLB standards) Sox infielder Wil Cordero beat the hell out of his wife in their Cambridge apartment? The Sox shipped his domestically violent (and hence completely politically incorrect in liberal Boston!) ass off to, I forget, Cleveland? Chicago? wherever...BUT.. if Cordero had been blessed with talent like an A-Rod or a Derek Jeter? The Sox would have determined the head-bashing that Mrs Cordero received that day to be nothing more than a "loud argument", they would have immediately huddled with the City of Cambridge officials (oops, Immean the "Official$$"), and the "unfortunate incident" would have been broomed by the CPD and the "lovely Cordero couple" would have been sent to the best marriage counseling, family counseling blah blah blah and Wil's wife would have been asked ("a$ked") to "Fut the shuck up and put this satchel of unmarked bills into your pocketbook" and the Sox would have "moved forward" from the incident and let "Wonderful Wil" lead them to multiple championships... (oops, I mean "Championship$")...

    You or I would have been arrested, held, tried, convicted, sentenced, forced to pay everything we own(ed) to lawyers to AT LEAST let me have couch or cot to sleep on in our one room apartment somewhere, while our wife moved on after the divorce, with everything you or I own... ("owned").

    It's always always ALL about the $$$$$.

    just heard on the news....now they're saying a case of mistaken identity. Wow. Talk about fake or manipulated news. 10 guys to plan and carry out a hit and they don't even know they guy they are trying to kill? I doubt that very much. Supposedly the shooter was supposed to shoot the other guy at the table. A guy named David as well but only he runs an auto body shop.

    Fake BS news. My guess is they gave the shooter leniency to cop to trying to shoot the other guy. I also think Boston politicians and the Red Sox are involved in the cover up.

    So fake news about the beloved Boston Sports hero.

    David Ortiz was not the intended target in murder-for-hire plot, prosecutor says.

    Of course they are covering something up.

    The amount of men willing to get on their knees in front of Ortiz because he plays sports ball is saddening,almost as bad as the Brady boys here. They cant let his image get spoiled so the man-love affair can continue with the house dads living vicariously through their sports ball heroes.

    And why the hell do grown men call him "Big Papi " ? Gay as F

    Do house dads not know what that translates to ?

    What man refers to another man as big daddy ?

    Sports ball fan men !

    It also begs the question as to why it took so long to reveal the true motive. Earlier in the week the news was saying that later this week Dominican Officials will reveal the motive. Well, if they already knew the motive days before then why the wait? My guess.....talking to the Red Sox and Boston politicians trying to acquire hush money.

    Last week the gunman said he was paid $8k to kill David Ortiz. So how was that a mistake? David Ortiz was shot. Now they are saying they were after the other guy but made a mistake on the identity. Well, from the video David Ortiz, probably the most recognizable person in the DR had his back to the shooter. But the shooter shot him anyway. The intended target? He was facing the gunman and the gunman still chose to shoot David Ortiz.

    So for me, I do not think I will ever be able to believe that anyone other than David Ortiz was the intended target.

    Well I don't know what happened. But I've learned an important lesson in all this.

    Don't wear the same shirt as Ortiz in public...

    About the only good news in this is that the island of Hispaniola
    isn't particularly close to Jeffrey Epstein's USVI pedophile compound.

    So maybe there's no Clinton connection to the poisonings.
    Maybe.

    Of course he was the intended target.
    The DR is in full panic mode right now looking at the loss of millions of tourist dollars .
    First a bunch of tourists ending up dead and now a popular sports star getting whacked right out in public.
