With the Patriots out of the postseason there is one topic that is dominating the conversations of New England sports fans: Tom Brady's future with or without the Pats.
As it turns out the buzz has also been circulating through the hallways of Boston City Hall, as Mayor Marty Walsh explained when calling into the Greg Hill Show Wednesday morning.
Walsh went so far as to offer a partial (tongue-in-cheek) solution in keeping Brady around.
"This is serious business here," he said. "Tom Brady is not done yet. I don’t know how many times he has to prove he is the greatest of all-time. But his next chapter of proving it, it better be wearing a No. 12 Patriots jersey, that’s all I can say. We were talking in City Hall yesterday about what we could do. We thought about simple things like renaming the Hancock and the Prudential both after Brady."
When asked about any potential confusion regarding the renaming of the buildings Walsh was quick with an answer, explaining, "Yeah, you put No. 1 and No. 2 on the other."
While the proposal was obviously in jest, it offered a glimpse into the desperation for some to keep Brady a Patriot.
