-- Tedy Bruschi thanked his fans and supporters on Monday in an Instagram post after he suffered a stroke on Thursday. 

“Around 10:30am on July 4th I lost use of my left arm,” Bruschi wrote. “I then tried to speak and realized I was slurring my speech. As I turned to my wife she noticed the left side of my face was drooping. We immediately knew what was happening. These are stroke warning signs. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. ---- I’m doing much better.”

-- After the U.S. Women’s Soccer team won the World Cup on Sunday, Bleacher Report tweeted an odd graphic of the team that got some attention.

People immediately noticed the randomness of the people behind the team. 

Bleacher Report deleted the tweet shortly after it was posted.
