Von Miller Gets Sentimental, Gifts Wine to AFC West Foes
Von Miller is better known for his quarterback-killing ways on the football field, but it turns out he's a pretty sentimental guy when he unlaces his Yeezy cleats and hangs up the pads for the day.
According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post, Miller gifted each AFC West opposing player, including everyone on the practice squads and injured reserve lists, a bottle of specialty wine last week. Also included with the bottle of wine was a touching note about how much of an honor it is for Miller to compete against his foes and how fortunate they all are to play the game they love.
Each bottle of wine had a label with Miller's well-known orange-rimed eyeglasses and signature.
This is a touching gift from Miller. Football is a violent and dangerous game, and there's little love lost between the white lines and hashmarks. But that being said, there's no reason these guys who compete twice a year can't respect each other and the efforts they've put in just to make it to the NFL.
Miller said it best in his note: "So take a moment, reflect on all your successes, and enjoy your accomplishment. Appreciate those who have helped you get this far, and start working towards your next childhood dream."
Props to you, Von Miller.
