You could use alot of adjectives to describe David Ortiz. Legendary, clutch, larger-than-life, great, handsome (?), the greatest DH of all time. I’m not sure if that last one is an adjective but just roll with it. One word that you can’t leave off that list is obvious though: Fun.
Is there anyone on planet earth who looks like they are more fun to be around than David Ortiz? No, and if you said otherwise you’re wrong.
See the following for evidence.

In case you’re blind or just very dumb, that is a video of David Ortiz pouring Tito’s vodka into Frank Thomas’ waterbottle before Fox Sports’ MLB show went live for the Astros vs Rays. His explanation? “Get the party started early!”
Words cannot express how much I missed this man while he was in the hospital.
I have a sneaking suspicion that Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, and Pedro used to pull this trick all the time back in 2004 and probably thought that it was the funniest prank of all time. How was Curt Schilling able to pitch in the bloody sock game? He couldn’t feel his feet because Manny and Big Papi put a fifth of vodka in his water before first pitch.
This coincided with maybe the greatest broadcast debut of all time. All in all, it was a really good day for Fox’s pre-game shows.

I know that we got a glimpse of Gronk and Ortiz as a duo in those Dunkin Donuts commercials a few years back, but we really do need a reality show with these two. Can you imagine the content.
Great night for former Boston Sports legends. Can we get this every night? Please?
