Move over, Ellen DeGeneres, David Ortiz is here to steal your selfie glory.
The 2013 World Series champion Boston Red Sox paid a visit to the White House on Tuesday, and as most championship teams do, the Sox presented President Barack Obama with a custom jersey. The jersey featured Obama’s name and the number 44 on the back to honor the 44th president.
Obama implored Ortiz to partake in a photo op with the official White House photographers and Ortiz said, “but first, let me take a selfie.”
Well, Big Papi didn’t actually say that, but he requested to snap a photo with his personal camera phone before taking an official one. And that’s how the best selfie of 2014 was made.
Check it out in the photos below.
Yup. A Big Papi selfie with the President during the ceremony http://t.co/PCHpvJ1yvP—
