Until now, Chase Utley had set the bar on using the "f" word in a public setting. But David Ortiz may have raised it today during pregame ceremonies at Fenway Park.

Speaking after services honoring the casualties and first responders of the Boston Marathon attacks, Ortiz took the microphone and expressed his own personal sentiments.

"This is our [...] city," he proclaimed. "Nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong."
