-- Mets fans have spoken out against Tom Brady trying to trademark Tom Seaver’s “Tom Terrific” nickname and now they are taking it a step further.

The fans are planning a Boston T.B. Party protest at Upper East Side restaurant Sojourn on Tuesday at 5 p.m. where they will dump Brady jerseys and memorabilia into buckets of beans.

Art Shamsky, Seaver’s former teammate, will be in attendance and plans to hold a press conference demanding Brady apologize to Seaver for trying to steal his nickname.

It was revealed earlier this year that Seaver is suffering from dementia. The Mets plan to unveil a statue of Seaver at Citi Field at the end of June.

-- James Holzhauer finally lost on Jeopardy on Monday night and one of his tweets after the episode aired was about Tom Brady.

Brady had previously tweeted in May he will eat a strawberry on Instagram Live if Holzhauer lost that night.
