Mets fans aren't going to let Tom Brady trademark "Tom Terrific" without a fight.
The Patriots quarterback recently sought to trademark the nickname, which has been associated with Mets Hall-of-Famer Tom Seaver since the 1960s. WFAN host and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason expressed his displeasure with Brady on Tuesday, and his fellow New Yorkers are following suit by protesting the six-time Super Bowl champion's pursuit of the trademark.
"Mets fans plan to gather at Upper East Side restaurant Sojourn on Tuesday at 5 p.m. for a 'Boston T.B.' Party, where they will dump jerseys and memorabilia of Brady into garbage bags filled with beans."

Also reportedly taking place at the rally will be Seaver's former Mets teammate, Art Shamsky, discussing Seaver's legacy while Mets fans "hold a press conference demanding Brady apologize to Seaver, his family and Mets fans everywhere."
There's still hope for Mets fans as Brady's trademark request hasn't officially been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Regardless of whether the request is granted, New York fans have yet another reason to despise the six-time Super Bowl champion.
