Can’t look at the Big Papi being sad pics anymore, so here are my favorite 10 Big Papi on the Red Sox pics. These will kinda brighten the mood now, and always bring a smile to my face. And yes, I realize he’s actually not in the last picture, but who do you think of first when you see that?
Lucky us. To have a legend like that play for our favorite team, at that high a level, with that kind of clutch, spreading that kind of joy, for so long. Wow. There will be other great members of the Red Sox in my lifetime. But there will never be another Big Papi. That’s why I’m sad. Sad like Papi was last night, but in my own way. The best and happiest kind of sad possible.
