Mayor Tom Menino has made quite the fool out of himself while trying to praise some of Boston’s best athletes over the past few years. Wes Weckler and Rob Grobowski. KJ and Hondo. ”Varitek splitting the uprights” to earn the Patriots their first Super Bowl. It’s quite the list, and one that continues to grow.
While engaging in some trash talk with the mayor of Baltimore this week in preparation of Sunday’s AFC title game between the Patriots and Ravens, Menino bragged about the play of “Wilcott” while trying to praise Vince Wilfork, the man whose jersey Menino was wearing at the time. That’s right, the guy’s name was right on Menino’s back and he still couldn’t get it right.
It also seems that Rob Grobowski has also now just become “Gonk” in the book of Mumbles Menino’s Sports Icons, as the mayor once again misfired on Gronk’s name while talking about his arm injury.
So the Patriots trash talk from politicians hasn’t gone very smoothly recently, obviously. Maybe Boston shoul

Rob Gronkowski and Vince Wilfork are one Tom Brady short of being two of the most popular players on the New England Patriots roster.
How is that Boston mayor Tom Menino has not learned from past mistakes and found a way to get their names right?

Boston Mayor Tom Menino has the opportunity to talk trash with a lot of Mayors because of the Success of the New England Patriots.
Menino for all his education, randomly butchers their names though. The man they call “Mumbles,” has referred to Wes Welker as Wes Weckler before.
So was there any reason to be surprised that yesterday while Menino was trash talking with the Mayor...

No matter how hard Boston Mayor Tom Menino tries, he simply will never be able to pronounce the names of all of his city’s superstar athletes.

Watch the Patriots defense and you'll soon see Rob Ninkovich making plays on the ball. The New England defender seems to have a knack for coming up with turnovers.
This is pretty hilarious. It also features several Patriots, mainly Tom Brady.
My favorite Brady one is, "I'm White".

I’ve gone back and forth on this one. On one hand, some of the reasons I didn’t like the Patriots last week are still true. They’re still a terrible post-season spread team, going 2-7 ATS in their last 9 post-season games and 4-8 ATS all-time as favorites of more than 4 in the post-season. Last year, they were favored by a similar amount in a similar situation here against...
FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady is something of an icon, even beyond the world of sports. The problem with that icon status, however, is that it isn’t always such a good thing.
During his weekly press conference leading up to Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, Brady fielded questions from the media on a variety of topics, including that of his off-field life.
Brady is known for his...

Both players were full participants in Friday's practice and are listed as probable. Both Jones (ankle) and Woodhead (thumb) were injured in last week's game against the Texans.
