With Such Name as Nevermore

Go Pats.

Go Pats.

Fickle Pats fans don't want to drink at the Mad Raven in Waltham since it reminds them of, ahem, the loathsome Baltimore Ravens. So owner Mark McAuliffe will switch the name to the Mad Patriot. He'll also switch the Raven's Nest in Walpole, which he also owns, to the Patriot's Nest. According to the Herald, barflies told him they wouldn't "go near" the bars otherwise. He'll change the name back if the Ravens win the AFC Championship on Sunday (and at least he won't be blamed for it). He'll keep the new name as long as the Pats stay in the playoffs. [Herald]
