Oh my. This is embarrassing. Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston asked the people of his city to be safe during the Red Sox's title drive on Tuesday morning, but he made a bit of a mistake in the process. From the Boston Globe:
Menino asks fans to be responsible as the Red Sox try to bring back the "World Series cup."— Maria Cramer (@GlobeMCramer) October 22, 2013
Menino's sports flubs have become pretty famous over the years. He referred to former Patriots kicker Adam Vinateri as "Varitek" on one occasion, for example.
Godspeed, Red Sox. May you bask in that World Series cup glory next week.
