    Hitting a home run between the foul poles is splitting the uprights.

    Re: What we thought we knew about the Super Bowl years was wrong!

    Given the context of his speech...I'm willing to bet that he was referring to "splitting the uprights" in football and Vinatieri. Maybe I'm just incredibly forgetful...but I can't remember a homerun Tek hit that was an iconic Boston sports moment in itself. Vinatieri on the other hand, has quite a few iconic moments with the Pats. I'm gonna go with football on this one. :)

    Classic Menino! In the same speech he was commenting on the number of Boston athletes who've become "ionic" and who can forget his famous "jumbletron" reference.
    Such great memories come back when seeing Bobby Orr and the gang. The best hockey player I've ever seen.
    Amazing to think how injuries forced Bobby to retire at age 28. 28!

    Ahh... Another great sport fan politician. I wish he would have talked about the great TD pass from Mike Maguire to Sammy Sooser (RIP Teddy).

    I'll never forget the moment when Brady hit Sam Cassell in the endzone in 2001.

    Truley, one of the greatest moments as a sports fan for me.

    In his defense wouldn't they be ionic in addition to iconic- after all, we do put them up on pedestals in reverence and admiration at their achievements :D

    Maybe he really was trying to say "ironic." What that might've meant I have no idea, but Mumbles seemed to have no idea what he was trying to say.

    Why does that guy keep getting elected?

    For me, the greatest moment is when David Ortiz shattered the TD passing mark for a single season in 2007.

    Bobby Orr was the greatest hockey player that Ive ever seen.

    He used to kill penalties by himself skating around in circles while the other team tried to get the puck away from him. Always a class act. He used to flip the puck up in the air to the referees with his stick for a face off.
