City Councilor John Connolly lost his bid for the next mayor of Boston yesterday to State Representative Marty Walsh in a tight race, and as expected he gave a concession speech after losing.
But afterward, Connolly was in a fighting mood on Twitter, taking to task his son's former hockey coach.

It all started with Connolly responding to unflattering Twitter comments about his defeat.

Tim Sullivan, aka "The_Sull" then stepped into the conversation.

And here is when we find out Sullivan is the hockey coach for Connolly's son.

At last check on Wednesday evening, Connolly didn't respond to the final tweet by Sullivan. In addition, the @The_Sull account was been made private, meaning Twitter users could not read messages unless they received permission.
