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

    That's all well and good, but when are we going to honor Will Brussels and Lucky Bird damn it!

    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. :)

    Was that Rosemary or George Clooney with the hail Mary?

    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.
