Mets fans to hold rally protesting Tom Brady's pursuit of 'Tom Terrific' trademark

Mets fans to hold rally protesting Tom Brady's pursuit of 'Tom Terrific' trademark

Mets fans aren't going to let Tom Brady trademark "Tom Terrific" without a fight.

The Patriots quarterback recently sought to trademark the nickname, which has been associated with Hall-of-Fame Mets pitcher Tom Seaver since the 1960s. WFAN host and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason expressed his displeasure with Brady on Tuesday, and his fellow New Yorkers are doing the same by protesting the six-time Super Bowl champion's pursuit of the trademark.

Per SNY:

Mets fans plan to gather at Upper East Side restaurant Sojourn on Tuesday at 5 p.m. for a 'Boston T.B.' Party, where they will dump jerseys and memorabilia of Brady into garbage bags filled with beans.

Also reportedly taking place at the rally will be Seaver's former Mets teammate, Art Shamsky, discussing Seaver's legacy while Mets fans "hold a press conference demanding Brady apologize to Seaver, his family and Mets fans everywhere."

There's still hope for Mets fans as Brady's trademark request hasn't officially been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Regardless of whether the request is granted, New York fans have yet another reason to despise their longtime archnemesis.

Tom Brady wields machete while riding horse to 'Old Town Road' song in new Twitter video

Tom Brady wields machete while riding horse to 'Old Town Road' song in new Twitter video

The Lil Nas X song "Old Town Road" is one of the biggest music hits of the year, and it made an appearance in Tom Brady's latest social media video.

The New England Patriots quarterback posted a video to Twitter (and his Instagram story) on Thursday of him riding a horse while the popular song plays in the background.

If you were wondering if the tool in Brady's right hand was a machete, you were right.

Brady is on vacation with his family enjoying some valuable personal time before Patriots training camp begins next week at Gillette Stadium.

The six-time Super Bowl champion will turn 42 on Aug. 3, but his passion for the game remains as strong as it's ever been.

UPDATE (1:45 p.m. ET): Is a Brady-themed "Old Town Road" remix in the cards??

Did Julian Edelman get these Patriots, Lion King animal comparisons right?

Did Julian Edelman get these Patriots, Lion King animal comparisons right?

We'll be honest: There's not much happening in the NFL world right now.

That may explain why Julian Edelman went on social media Thursday and, in an apparent promotion for Disney's reboot of The Lion King, recast several New England Patriots players (and his coach) as animals.

Let's break it down, shall we?

Tom Brady: Goat
This one's a layup. Bonus points for the eye black.

Edelman: Squirrel
Edelman has long said his favorite nickname is "The Squirrel," so this is another obvious one.

Matthew Slater: Cheetah
An older, wiser animal also would have worked here, but New England's special teams ace does have blazing speed. And those glasses are a nice touch.

James White: Rabbit
This one fits pretty well, as the shifty running back is similarly hard to catch.

Dont'a Hightower: Rhino
The Patriots linebacker certainly has the strength of a rhino, but we'd like to think he's a bit more fleet of foot. 

Bill Belichick: The Owl
Belichick's wisdom makes him a natural choice for the owl, although opponents might peg the Patriots head coach as Scar instead.

There you have it. Overall, not a bad effort from Edelman ... and Hightower and White seem to agree.

If you’re looking for actual football news, you only have to wait one more week, as Patriots training camp begins July 25 at Gillette Stadium.
