Boston's Mayor Menino has been firmly entrenched in the job for over 17 years at this point and has presided over many a victory parade in the last decade. You'd think in that time he'd have learned some of the "ionic" players, people like Adam Vinatieri who WON A FUCKING SUPER BOWL with the greatest postseason kick of all time.

Varitek wasn't even THERE -- although Tim Wakefield and David Ortiz were on hand to represent the Red Sox.
Boston you're my home.
