David Ortiz's reaction to Jackie Bradley Jr.'s grand slam during ALCS Game 3 was priceless

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his second career grand slam in the top of the eighth inning during Boston's 8-2 ALCS Game 3 victory on Tuesday. This was the first time since 2013 (Shane Victorino during Game 6 of the ALCS) that a Red Sox player has hit a grand slam in the postseason. So, it was quite the treat to see David Ortiz react to JBJ's slam. It was epic:

We can very much assume Ortiz is pulling for the Red Sox, but to see the reaction while he was on the FOX Sports (and via Twitter) set in real time was priceless. And not just because he brought Frank Thomas in on the celebration.
What a compliment from one of Boston's biggest sluggers ever.
