-- 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.

If James loses on Jeopardy tonight I’ll eat a strawberry on IG live tomorrow.
