Hosted by none other than Sean McDonough, the first-ever Globies award show was held at the House of Blues in Boston on Tuesday. Some of the biggest Boston icons made appearances including David Ortiz, Rob Gronkowski, Patrice Bergeron as well as retired legends Doug Flutie, Troy Brown, Ray Bourque and others.
After the professional team MVP awards were given out, many Patriots players prevailed with pretty much any award they could possibly win. Tom Brady alone won six including Patriots MVP. Best moment went to Malcolm Butler for his Super Bowl interception. Julian Edelman won unsung hero, Gronk took home best quote and best social media campaign (with Big Papi), and Belichick won executive of the year and coach of the year. That’s 12 awards total for those of you counting at home. That’s what happens when you win rings.
Toward the end came the awards for inspirational figures who made significant imprints and contributions in the Boston sports culture in one way or another. Tom Menino, Milt Schmidt, little Liam Fitzgerald and Pete Frates were all recognized for their courage, spirit and dedication tied into Boston sports. It was a very special segment of the award ceremony and another reminded reason of what great things propagate through the community and fandom of professional sports.
