I just need to know from the people of Boston, you vote for Mayor Tom Menino every election solely based on the fact that you love these moments as much as I do.
Menino spoke with the mayor of Baltimore over the phone in some good old-fashioned trash talking before their respective teams meet up this weekend in the AFC Championship Game. Menino did what Menino does and butchered the names of Vince Wilfork and Rob Gronkowski – calling them “Wilcott” and “Gonk.”
There was one name that Menino had no trouble with, Tom Brady. Because he repeated it about seven times.
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?

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...
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...
