It wouldn’t be a rundown of the year in Boston sports without Boston mayor Tom Menino messing up a local athlete’s name. In describing the Celtics’ gutsy run to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Menino said, referred to Kevin Garnett as "K.J." and Rajon Rondo as "Hondo." He later addressed the issue on Twitter.
You know it's championship season when Iflub our athletes' names! Sorry KG & Rondo, it's kind of my thing- another Menino-ism! #GoCeltics— Mayor Tom Menino (@mayortommenino) June 7, 2012
