David Ortiz expertly pulls off videobomb during Fenway on-field report (video)

Game 1 of the ALDS between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park is only a day away, but if David Ortiz’s wacky antics during an NESN on-field report on Wednesday are any indication, Big Papi is feeling pretty loosey-goosey headed into it. No nervousness, no apprehension, nothing like that. In fact, he’s clearly feeling pretty relaxed about it.

Ortiz invaded the frame and  noshed on a snack as he videobombed Tom Caron and Rob Bradford during a report for “NESN Sports Today,” looking about as carefree as can be, which is probably not an encouraging sign for the Rays.

A masterful performance, indeed. Ortiz shows he’s as adept at on-camera silliness as he is at tearing the hearts out of opposing teams and its fans with clutch, late-inning heroics.
