After defeating the Houston Texans in the second round of playoffs, the New England Patriots are preparing for the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Patriots received some praise from Boston Mayor Tom Menino, notorious for getting the names of the city's star athletes wrong.

In an interview with New England Cable News about a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Menino looked at some players who will lead the team to victory, like 'Vince Wilcock,' and also flubbed the name for the injured 'Gonk.'
Menino's bet included local seafood from Reds Best Seafood, and side dishes from CropCircle Kitchen, Alexs Ugly Hot Sauce, Deborahs Kitchen Jams, Nella Pasta, Vianne Chocolate, and Whoopie Monsters Whoopie Pies.
If New England wins, Mayor Rawlings-Blake will send up favorites including crab cakes from J.W. Faidley Seafood, stuffed cabbage and kruschiki from Sophie's Place, fruit salad from Kay's Produce, and Berger Cookies.
