New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady posted a lengthy message to Instagram on Wednesday in which he thanked fans, lamented the end of his 2019 season and addressed rumors regarding his future in the league.
One player in particular who was struck by Brady’s message was veteran Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson, who played alongside the quarterback in 2019 as well as from 2004 to 2009, a span during which the Patriots appeared in two Super Bowls, winning one.
While Brady used his platform to send his thanks to Patriots fans, Watson commented that it was Brady himself who actually deserved a thank you.
On Tuesday, Brees shared multiple photos to Instagram to commemorate the end of the season: one with his teammates, and one of his daughter, Rylen. The latter photo Brees noted that he “could not post” during the season — because the sweet snap is of Rylen studying her father’s call sheet.
On Monday, Wentz informed fans that he “will be just fine” in a post thanking fans for their “thoughts and prayers” after his injury.
“So dang proud of this team and how we battled and overcame so much this season,” the quarterback began his message before addressing the play that caused him to be taken out of the game.
“Head injuries are a scary thing so I appreciate everybody’s thoughts and prayers,” he said. “Hate not being out there to finish it out with my guys because of a play like that, but it’s the unfortunate part of this game.”
USWNT star Alex Morgan posted two adorable photos with her husband to Instagram on Sunday, but our attention went straight to her growing baby bump.
Morgan uploaded two photos alongside Servando Carrasco, her spouse of 5 years, while the two were in Berkeley, California, over the weekend. Morgan and Carrasco met while they both were attending and playing soccer at UC Berkeley, and according to Morgan, this was the first time the two had been back to the city together since they graduated.
“So many good memories!” she gushed underneath the snaps of the couple atop Grizzly Peak Vista Point overlooking the city.
Carolina Hurricanes center Erik Haula and his wife, Kristen Haula, took to Instagram to announce the tragic loss of their unborn daughter this week.
“While it’s not what is best for everyone, it personally feels best for us to share,” Kristen explained of the family’s decision to make the loss public. She revealed that after feeling “amazing” during her entire pregnancy, which the couple announced in November, that an ultrasound on Monday revealed their baby had lost her heartbeat.
“While it may be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel on some days going forward, and some may be harder than others to understand why this happened, the complete joy & excitement she has brought to us and those who love her will be with us forever,” she continued. “Mommy and Daddy know she is being taken care of in heaven.”
Erik Haula echoed his wife’s heartbreaking sentiments in his own post on Wednesday, which revealed that the death occurred on December 30.
Tom Brady and Peyton Manning may have been bitter rivals on the gridiron, but off of it, they’re just a couple of buddies taking selfies.
Manning, drafted in 1998 by the Indianapolis Colts, and Brady, drafted in 2000 by the New England Patriots, have been constantly compared and often found themselves fighting it out on the biggest of stages. From 2001 to 2015, the two quarterbacks played each other a total of 17 times before Manning announced his retirement in 2016.
Sunday marked one week since former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was shot in the back at close range in his native Dominican Republic.
The Red Sox sent a team plane to transport Ortiz to Massachusetts for further medical treatment and have been giving fans regular updates on his health, courtesy of his wife, Tiffany.
Ortiz’s children, son D’Angelo and daughter Alexandria, have also been posting updates about their dad during his recovery from multiple surgeries.
On Sunday, the family took to Instagram to publish another round of tributes to the future Hall of Famer in honor of Father’s Day in the United States. As Alexandria noted in her post, the family still has Dominican Father’s Day to celebrate on July 28, which will hopefully be a much happier occasion.
