“Havlicek stole the ball. Fisk waved the ball fair. Flutie launched the Hail Mary pass. Varitek split the uprights.” Mayor Menino, 2010.
Boston’s mayor, state officials, federal and local law enforcement agencies and all the first responders in and around Boston earned everyone’s eternal gratitude for the way they handled the reaction and investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings. But the mayor also has a well-earned reputation for his self-named Menino-isms – and no list of Boston sports quotes would be complete without at least one.
While he’s had many gems over the years – this from the dedication of the Bobby Orr statue was the most ionic of them all.
Thanks for helping us smile again.
