-- Tom Brady celebrated the Fourth of July on Thursday by posting a heartfelt picture and message to Instagram in honor of his mother Galynn’s birthday. 

He shared a photo of himself and his family at the Super Bowl along with a caption for Galynn. 

Happy Birthday Mom! There will never be enough words to let you know how grateful we are that we have a mom and Grandma as special as you. You’re kind, strong, beautiful, courageous, and wise. Thank you for always loving, supporting, and caring for us. And you may be another year older, but you'll always be younger than Dad. It’s fun to celebrate the little victories! We ❤️ you!

-- After the Blues beat the Bruins to win the Stanley Cup Final last month, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh sent a letter of congratulations to St. Louis superfan Laila Anderson. 

Anderson is battling a rare immune disease disorder called HLH and was an inspiration to the Blues throughout their Stanley Cup run and first win in franchise history. 

"Over the last 18 years or so years, we in Boston have been pretty blessed with championships by all of our sports teams," Walsh wrote in the letter. "It's an incredible experience and I sincerely hope you enjoy every moment of it!"

He also invited her to meet him in Boston sometime: "I certainly can't promise you a cooler experience than standing on the Garden ice kissing the Stanley Cup, but Boston's a great city and would love to have you back.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “My mindset is: being the first to do something is great. I want to be the best. And I don’t want to be the best of my gender, I want to be the best in the league. Obviously, that’s easy to say when you’re on your fifth day. I got a lot to learn and I got a steep mountain to climb.” -- Kara Lawson, on being the first female coach in Celtics history
