The right honorable mayor of Boston Tom Menino has a long history of mispronouncing and flubbing the names of New England-area athletes. Our favorites are probably "KG and Hondo" and "Wes Weckler." On Wednesday, he was at it again.
Menino, addressing reporters live from his official mayoral La-Z-Boy, referred to New England Patriots players like "Vince Wilcock" and of course "Gonk."
Some other Menino-approved players to look out for in Sunday's AFC Championship Game:
- Joe "Edie" Falco
- Davey Woodface
- Linebacker great Parker Lewis
- Talib Kweli
- Ed Wood
- A-Rod Hernandez
- Antoine Boy-ar-dee
- Jesus Jones
- Admiral Terrence Sugglesworth
