Apparently, censorship doesn’t come into play for news outlets covering their home teams. It certainly didn’t for the New England Sports Network (NESN) when the Boston Red Sox clinched the AL East Wednesday night with a 5-3 win over New York at Yankees stadium.
F-bombs reverberated through the visitor’s locker room like casual conversation as Red Sox players in ski goggles doused each other with champagne—all broadcast right into millions of living rooms across the country, courtesy of NESN.
The only way it could have been worse is if the Sox had clinched at Fenway. Now that would have been a party.
Really, what do you expect for David Ortiz’s last season?
