AROUND THE WEB:

-- Tom Brady has been praised for his beer-chugging talent and he showed off his skills at the Patriots Super Bowl ring ceremony on Thursday night.

Brady and David Andrews downed their beer at the event held at Robert Kraft’s house. Chugging beers has been a recent trend for NFL quarterbacks, with Aaron Rodgers, kind of, doing it at a Bucks game, followed by Matthew Stafford, Patrick Mahomes, Mitchell Trubisky and Josh Allen doing the same.

And now Brady.

The quarterback also tweeted a response to a video of himself from his first Super Bowl ring ceremony and had some fashion regret.

-- A Raptors fan was arrested after making an idiotic remark about Ayesha Curry on live TV.

Tristan Warkentin made the remark on June 2 after the Raptors lost to the Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Steph Curry scored 23 points in the game.

When the reporter asked Warkentin what it was like to be in the crowd during the game, he responded, "The vibe was unreal and I just want to let everyone know Ayesha Curry we're gonna f--k her right in the p--sy."

Toronto Police say Warkentin was arrested for criminal mischief since he was aware his comments would air on live TV.

Warkentin said he’s been receiving death threats and told the Toronto Sun, "I’m not in a position to defend myself in terms of what happened. I am sure you understand the influence of alcohol."

He plans to apologize to Ayesha Curry and said, "What I did was disgraceful; it was an alcohol-influenced situation ... To be honest I don’t even remember being there but I am responsible for my own actions at the end of the day.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "The non-call on Acciari, their player's on his way to the box. It's right in front of the official. It's a slew-foot. Our guy's gone. The spotter took him out of the game for a possible concussion. I mean, it's blatant. It had a big effect on the game.” -- Bruce Cassidy, on the officials in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final
