A Boston cop at the Red Sox game on Oct. 13 has become quite the sensation after throwing his hands up in the air and cheering when Big Papi hit a grand slam to tie the game in the eighth inning. According to FOX Sports, Steve Horgan, 50, was working the bullpen when David Ortiz changed the game with one swing off of Detroit's Joaquin Benoit.
"I couldn’t even hear myself it was so loud. I can’t believe it. I don’t know what to think. I can’t believe it. It was an awesome feeling," Horgan said.
The Boston cop at the Red Sox game has had the video of his celebratory stance shown on virtually every news station since Sunday night's amazing comeback. Locals have coined the phrase "Horganing" and people have been throwing their arms up and cheering all over the city -- and with good reason.
Sunday was a great day for sports fans in and around Boston. The New England Patriots were able to beat the New Orleans Saints with just five seconds left in the fourth. Tom Brady rallied his guys and they were able to score a touchdown leaving the Saints with their first loss of the season. It wasn't but a few short hours later that Big Papi would make a clutch play that would have Boston fans elated for days. And Horgan experienced it from Fenway Park. On duty or not, Horgan loves the Sox.
