-- In honor of Tom Brady’s 41st birthday today, here is a story about one of his biggest fans.

19-year-old Connecticut woman Megan Uhrynowski was so excited to get Brady’s autograph on her arm at practice on Monday that she made it into a tattoo.

Uhrynowski, a student at Sacred Heart University, said she was “freaking out” when Brady agreed to sign her arm.

“It was probably, like, the coolest thing," she said.

Then her friend suggested she make it permanent. She went to a tattoo parlor the next day.

Last year, another fan got this huge Brady tattoo on his arm.

Happy Birthday, Tom.

-- LaVar Ball has noticed Kobe Bryant isn’t the biggest fan of his son Lonzo and he has a theory as to why.

LaVar thinks Bryant has been working out with Jayson Tatum and asking why the Lakers drafted Lonzo over Tatum and critiquing Lonzo because Bryant doesn’t like that Lonzo said LeBron James is his favorite player.

"How many times does a player get to play with his favorite player? Probably never. Yes. That's why Kobe don't like (Lonzo) that much. Because he said, 'I like LeBron,’” LaVar told Stadium's Sauce and Shram. "LeBron's always been his guy though."

Kind of a petty reason not to like a player but LaVar had to come up with something so he went with this reach.
