The holiday season has arrived, and a certain bespectacled star pass rusher is bearing gifts. The Denver Broncos’ Von Miller gave every single player in the AFC West a bottle of wine.
Even AFC West players on the injured reserve and practice squad received a bottle of The Setting, according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post, which means Miller gifted about 290 bottles.
The wine was concocted by Boulder native Jesse Katz. Each bottle came with a note from Miller. It read:
It is an honor and a privilege to take the field and compete with you twice a year. We are so fortunate to have this opportunity to fulfill our childhood dreams of playing in the NFL. The blood, sweat, aches and pains, and endless hours spent watching film are a testament to the love and dedication we have for this game. 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.
Thank you for helping to make our game great!
I’m holding out hope that a generous person from a rival media outlet is going to send a six-pack my way.
