Suck it, Shank.
Dan Shaughnessy had his yearly Ortiz hategasm today, erupting in a paroxysm of disgust for the player whose fundamental evil for some reason only he is able to recognize. But he was apparently a paragraph short in his recounting of every last horrible thing David Ortiz has ever done, so he threw this in at the end:
Last, and least, the rules say youâ€™re not supposed to use the f-bomb when you are on live television. When David Ortiz told the world, â€œThis is our [expletive] city!,â€™â€™ we made T-shirts commemorating the phrase, and the chairman of the FCC tweeted his approval.
Somehow, we missed the editor's note on boston.com's scoop last week about the guy sneaking into the homes of BC students and tickling them while they sleep:

Video of Touch FM owner Charles Clemons by Doug Bennett.
Judy Wilburn reports she was listening to the unlicensed Dorchester radio station shortly after 11 a.m. when:
Touch 106.1 just went off the air. Announcer said authorities shutting down, equipment taken.

Plutor saved a copy of boston.com's new 404 page. It's OK, we can laugh now, right?
