In the least surprising story of the day, the Boston Election Department shared that Red Sox World Series MVP David Ortiz received the most write-in votes in this week’s Boston mayoral election. There were 560 write-in votes in all, and it’s not clear how many went to Big Papi, but he received the most.
So, if David Ortiz got the most write-in votes, Im pretty sure that means he technically finished third in the 2013 Boston mayoral election. Thats friggin awesome.
Imagine if David Ortiz did win and became our next mayor. Think about that for a second. Mayor David Ortiz. Actually it would suck because Im pretty sure he wouldnt be able to play baseball and be the mayor.
Anyway, I like to think I may have played a small role in him getting all those write-ins.. I did tweet this the morning of election day:
