Earlier this week the New York Mets were upset with Patriots QB Tom Brady because Brady was trying to trademark the name Tom Terrific and the Mets say that moniker belonged to pitching legend Tom Seaver and Brady was just trying to make money off of it! Well Brady held a press conference to say the only reason he wanted to trademark the name is because he hated being called that and wanted to bury it…the latest word is that Brady is backing off on the trademark push. Oh the drama!
