Tom Menino passed away this morning at the age of 71. He was the longest serving mayor in the history of this city and he was a true masshole. There will never be another Tom Menino. As he would say, "neva eva eva." In honor of his passing this morning here are his most famous Menino-isms one more time.
There was that one time he referred to Vince Wilfork as, "Wilcock" while wearing his jersey.
There was that time he called KG and Rondo, "KJ and Hondo."
One time he referred to Gronkowski and Welker, "Grubowski and "Wes Weklah."
After the Bruins won the Stanley Cup, he called them "great ballplayers" on and off the ice.
There was that time said he wanted to see the "World Series Cup" come back to Boston.
And here is the classic video of him reminding us of the "ionic" moments in Boston sports history including Varitek splitting the uprights (at the 1:00 mark):
I did not see that coming. I get that it was the sad sack Nets, but the Celtics actually looked pretty good. By the end of the third quarter, they had scored 101 points and had a 29 point for Christ's sake. Sucky teams don't do that.
Rajon Rondo didn't even play one exhibition game and had 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds. Damn. That Marcus Smart kid had 10 points and four steals. A total of eight Celtics scored in double digits. You heard it here first: the Celtics are not going to suck this season.
The first line of Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Seth Griffith has six points on the night. But it doesn't matter. The Bruins couldn't hold their shit together in the third period, gave up three goals and ended up losing.
The Bruins do this every year and every year it is hilarious. They basically reverse trick or treat at the Children's Hospital right around Halloween and dress up for the kids. Well, this year they went as the characters from Frozen.
If you can't tell, that is Matt Fraser, Dougie Hamilton, Kevan Miller, Matt Bartkowski, Torey Krug and Seth Griffith.
