I just wanted to get it out of my chest

This congruent conflation mixes  “get it out of my system” and “get it off my chest”, both meaning to unburden oneself.   This was spoken by Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz‘ in response to his emotional pregame speech:

“This past week man, I
don’t think there was one human being who wasn’t affected by what we got
going on down here,” Ortiz said. “This past week, I was very emotional,
very angry about the whole situation. I had to get that out of my chest
and just make sure that our fans and everybody in the nation knows that
this is a great nation, and part of it was how everybody supported each
other when this thing went down. I’m happy to be a part of this
nation.”

Well put, Papi. Isn’t it great to have him back?

“This past week, I don’t think there was one human being who wasn’t
affected by what we got going on down here,” Ortiz said. “This past week
for me, myself, I was very emotional and angry about whole situation
and got to get that out of my chest and make sure our fans and everyone
in the nation knows that this is a great nation and part of it was
supporting each other when everything went down.”

Thanks to Mike Browning for passing this gem along.
