Boston mayor Thomas Menino mistakes KG and Rondo for KJ and Hondo

http://youtu.be/sakiGDVr7Ng

Boston mayor Thomas Menino said he was excited about the Boston Celtics' recent success, but he made a pair of gaffes in talking about the team's star players.

The Celtics moved ahead 3-2 in their series with the Miami Heat on Tuesday, and Menino gave credit to "KJ" and "Hondo." He was of course referring to KG -- Kevin Garnett -- and Rajon Rondo. Hondo is also the nickname for former Celtics great John Havlicek. (The video above comes via the Twitter feed of ESPN's Rachel Nichols).

“KJ is great, but Hondo is really the inspiration," Menino said. "Hondo drives that team.”

ESPNBoston.com reports that this is just another in a series of sports-related mistakes from the mayor. He has previously referred to New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski as “Grabowski” and wide receiver Wes Welker as "Wes Weckler." He also said that Jason Varitek, the long-time Boston Red Sox catcher, kicked the game-winning field goal in the 2002 Super Bowl. It was actually Adam Vinatieri.
