Summary:

At the first baseball game in Boston after the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz spoke to the crowd (and television viewers), including a comment that “This is our fucking city!” – inspiring then-FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski to tweet “David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today’s Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston.” Ortiz’s speech, and Genachowski’s support for him, led dozens of people to complain to the Federal Communications Commission, according to documents released to Deadspin.com, a sports blog.
