-- You might not think Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller would be a fan of Tom Brady but, according to Miller, it’s tough not to be.

Miller spent time with Brady and his crew at the Kentucky Derby this year and raved about his time at Churchill Downs to NFL Network’s James Palmer.

“It’s extremely hard not to like Tom Brady and all of those guys,” Miller said.

He then added, "I’m a Tom Brady fan unless on Sundays.”

Miller posed with Brady at Churchill Downs in a photo on his Instagram, which he calls ‘honestly one the dopest pictures I have in my phone’ even though the lighting is off.

I would argue these might be the dopest pictures.

The 145th Kentucky Derby is in the books, an incredible experience. I am so thankful and beyond grateful to be apart of such a beautiful spectacle ♥️----

-- It doesn’t look like the Bruins are slowing down in the playoffs anytime soon and one Massachusetts family is ready for the long haul.

A fan of the team in Boxford clearly has playoff fever and mowed a Bruins logo into the lawn in the backyard.

Hopefully this brings the team good luck as they take on the Hurricanes in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Losing by 6 is embarrassing. But it’s not as embarrassing as Boston’s lack of success over the past 4 decades. The Bruins only have 1 Stanley Cup since 1972. Shoot, the Carolina Hurricanes have that many and they’ve only been around since 1997.”-- North Carolina journalist Andy Specht, in a tweet after the Bruins’ win over the Hurricanes on Sunday
