Video: Crazy Mets Fans Throw Boston Baked Beans at Brady Jersey

New York Mets fans have been quite upset with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady ever since news broke out that his company was trying to trademark the nickname “Tom Terrific.” 

According to recent reports, the angry fans destroyed a jersey and a poster of the New England Patriots quarterback as a way of showing their loyalty to Hall of Fame Mets pitcher Tom Seaver, who has been known as “Tom Terrific” since his playing days in the 1960s.

Tom Seaver was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. At that time he got what was at the time and until Mariano Rivera’s induction this year, the highest percentage of votes. At the age of 74, Seaver was diagnosed with dementia earlier this year.

Ed Kranepool, who used the play for the Mets, held a rally at a New York restaurant Tuesday night and took turns throwing Boston baked beans at the Brady poster and jersey. He later told reporters:

“Maybe it’s the new athlete, the ‘I’ generation, only thinking about himself.”

It was only this week that news broke out Brady was trying to trademark the nickname Tom Terrific.It has been reported that this nickname’s trademark application was filed for collectible trading cards, sports trading cards, posters, and printed photographs. In addition, it will be trademarked for both t-shirts and shirts, meaning that a collection of clothing called “Tom Terrific” could also be happening sometime in the future.

As stated in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Brady’s company filled the applications on a 1B basis which means that they have an intent to use these trademarks. 

There is really no right way to go at this. While Seaver was the first to be called this, Brady is the first who has ever spoken about trademarking the nickname.
