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.

Yes, Menino is wearing a Wilfork jersey.

Tom Brady Has ‘No Idea’ Why He Does Fashion Shoots, Much Prefers to Be Patriots’ Quarterback

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.

Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots: AFC Conference Championship

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...
