David Ortiz doesn’t want to hear about the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl LI comeback anymore.
Since the Pats overcame the 28-3 deficit to the Atlanta Falcons in February, shirts with those two numbers began popping up, oftentimes with the final score 34-28 on the back.
Ortiz, in an effort to raise money for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, came up with shirts of his own. In a tweet promoting the cause, he tagged three writers from Barstool Sports, who have had a big hand in making the 28-3 mantra so popular by merchandising it. But in Ortiz’s video, he wants to talk about the “OG Comeback,” also known as the Boston Red Sox’s 2004 American League Championship Series comeback.
Ortiz is offering the clothing as a t-shirt, crewneck sweatshirt and hooded sweatshirt. And by the looks of the video, it seems Red Sox Hall of Famer Tim Wakefield already got his hands on one.
Great to see Big Papi expanding his entrepreneurial skills beyond wine and food.
