I won't post a link to the video here because it is really disturbing. I sure hope he pulls through with some semblance of a normal life afterward. But I have a sneaking suspicion that as this investigation starts digging into what happened, a lot of Boston sports fans are not going to like the things they learn about David Ortiz. He is the most beloved Boston sports figure of the last 50 years at least. But the video makes it clear that the shooting was not an accident or a robbery.

He's not a very good shooter either unless he didn't intend to kill him. At that distance he should have been able to put one in the back of his head. Then again, he could have been scared out of his mind or nervous as heck and just did what came natural. Also, not sure how the video is disturbing. They showed it on the national news twice and all you could see was a puff of smoke and then Ortiz kind of stumbling off his stool. The video is pretty bad quality.

Then again, I've seen the video from this incident which was disturbing.

Looked like a young guy, skinny.  I'm sure he knew the retribution that was coming.

I saw him play first base for the Salt Lake Triple-A team in the late 90s. He was huge even then. He would hit these big towering home runs that went up and over the berm that lines The Outfield

Reading that a drug lord ordered a hit as he claimed Ortiz was having an affair with his wife. Who knows how true this might be???

Makes the most sense actually, what other crime syndicate acts so ruthlessly, and would brazenly assassinate him in a public setting?....it's also being reported that Ortiz was warned, but ignored it.

The most recent reports here are that the shooter was a cop.

Latest update is that the shooter got away, the guy that was caught was just a hapless lackey...

I'm betting the shooter will never be found, in one piece anyway...

A foot massage is a very personal act. :0

I'm glad Big Papi is going to be okay because he was a great player and an emotional leader, and I hope justice is done, etc. But I'm pretty sure that I'm a bad person because my reaction to the news that he'd be in Boston was "I hope he doesn't inspire the Bruins for Game 7" . . .

Apparently there's a video circulating of his mistress and wife or sister fighting in the hospital while he's having surgery.

I saw, and heard what happened to "David Ortiz".  From the shooting, I hope he'll be able to have a full recovery.

Only $7,800 to off someone.  It's only natural that the hit was botched.  You get what you pay for.  :facepalm:
