If you thought New York Yankees fans’ send-off for David Ortiz would be like the one Boston Red Sox fans gave Derek Jeter in his final regular-season away game in the rivalry, think again.
Well, to be fair, we still don’t know what Yankees fans will do when Big Papi shows up to Yankee Stadium on Sept. 29, but it appears some New York supporters hope to show Ortiz their bare backsides.
Yes, you read that right. Some Yankees fans hope to moon Ortiz when he plays his final away game in the storied rivalry, and they even made a website to show just how serious they are.
“If ten people Moon Big Papi, they’ll be arrested,” the website says. “If ten thousand people Moon Big Papi, they’ll tell their grandchildren they were there. Be there.”
They also stated their lengthy mission on the website, which you can read in full here. Let’s just say they’re not exactly big fans of Ortiz — shocker, right?
Ortiz said he’s ready to get booed during the game and that he respects Yankees fans. We’re guessing he wasn’t expecting to get mooned, though.
