Boston mayor loves Celtics stars “KJ,” “Hondo.” Whaaaat?


I didn’t know Boston actually elected Mayor Quimby.

The video above is Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, saying that he thinks they get great play out of “KJ” and that “Hondo” is the real inspiration.

KJ? I thought he was the mayor of Sacramento now and a little past his prime. Hondo? Boston could certainly use No. 17 to come down out of the rafters and have John Havlicek suit up for this one.

Or, maybe he meant KG and Rondo. Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo. The mayor has already apologized for the gaffe.

Of course, this is the same mayor who once thanked NBA Commissioner “Donald Stern” and butchered some other sports names. So, sometimes he gets names wrong, it’s not like he’s in a profession where his people skills are the most important thing.
