Papi’s Presidential Selfie

Yesterday was the first off-day for the Boston Red Sox Baseball Club. The World Series Champions took to the White House to meet President Obama and tour his home at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in Washington, DC.

‘Excited’ is an understated emotion you could use to mildly describe the players feelings about being at the White House. The home of the President and his family had the players completely ecstatic. Prior to the event, left fielder, Jonny Gomes bought the team matching American Flag blazers which the Red Sox leaked on their Twitter page.

Gomes wasn’t the only excited Bostonian baseballer to get overly enthusiastic about the event. Big Papi, David Ortiz, was so thrilled he decided to take a ‘selfie’ with President Obama which quickly turned into one of the most popular selfies of all time.

The Presidential selfie was so popular that Big Papi was even trending on Twitter.

This selfie may just be the most popular selfie of all time. But for now, the Sox are back in Baltimore ready for game 2 with the Orioles tonight.
