David Ortiz was reportedly shot in the back in a bar in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on Sunday.
At first glance I assumed he's going to be okay because most reports say he was shot in the leg but some are saying he was shot in the back. Remember this is in the DR where the hospitals and info sucks. I know the guy who shot him isn't having a good time. Edit- took down the video, it's too graphic.David Ortiz was reportedly shot in the back in a bar in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on Sunday.www.google.com
I saw this the other day and although I'm sure this type of stuff happens everywhere, it made me swear I'd never go to the DR.Stay out of the DR for now. It just isn’t worth the trouble. Too many people get roped in to these dirt cheap resort offers, but it isn’t safe. Unfortunately, when all of these things happen and the local police and the resorts don’t protect Americans from crime, it will just embolden more criminals. No way in hell I’d let my wife or daughters go anywhere in one of those resorts without me these days. Honestly, no way in hell I’d go there at all anyway.
It's homeWent there twice first time I promised myself and everyone we went with I'd never go again. The resort left me with the revenge for the last 4 days couldn't leave the room as I am sure most can imagine why. The plane ride was awful and 2 weeks after I was still suffering some after effects. Got roped into a trip there again due to my wife company and a prize trip but it was at the Hard Rock and was much better, more Americanized for sure, food was really good and looked like food I'd eat here unlike the first trip. The one consistency was how awful the drive was in and out of the compounds, it's a very bad place outside the gates of where you stay. So my wife won yet another trip there and this was a month ago and I couldn't go. I really didn't want her to go but I know she was with many good people as well as her bestie. Now she's reading stuff and said before this shooting I will never go there again. This morning she said I'm happy to have gotten out of there now.
I just don't understand why these guys make millions here and find the need to go back to live there. Visit maybe but bring your family back to the States. This is no place for a multimillionaire to be hanging out, especially the "discotheques" LOL. Not a fan of the man but certainly wish him the best in his recovery and hopefully it's a full recovery.
Maybe he should have kept his Massachusetts home.It's home
He needs to be stable enough first. They’re saying once he is cleared he’ll be stateside.So now they’re saying vital organs are damaged? He needs to come back and be looked at by American doctors. Generally speaking it is a terrible idea for athletes who made it out of dire situations in ghettos or third world countries to return home. Envious people with nothing to lose are the last people they should be around.
He made a comment about "the revenge" after eating the food which is short for Montezuma's revenge. It means he spent a lot of time on the toilet for those 4 days.>visits another county with a different culture
>upset food doesn't look like it does at home
dude just save some money and vacation to the jersey shore, the chicken nuggets there are 100% all american.
Also, what do you mean most can imagine why you couldn't leave your room?
