So the David Ortiz retirement tour begins today

If this report is true, it appears David Ortiz has decided to go the Derek Jeter/Mariano Rivera route and embrace a year-long retirement celebration.  I'm against the idea in principal (see below), but can you blame him?  After watching the two Yankees do it in back-to-back seasons, it's only fair.

Anyway, this should give me the time necessary to get my "Top 10,000 memories of David Ortiz in a Red Sox uniform" blog put together before Papi officially calls it quits.

Should athletes really get to celebrate their retirement for an entire season?
