View Full Version : Von Miller gives every player in AFC West custom bottle of wine

Santa Miller came early this year.

Broncos linebacker Von Miller gifted every player in the AFC West ó including practice-squad players and those on injured reserve ó with a bottle of custom wine and a Thank You note. Thatís nearly 290 bottles.

The wine, called The Setting, was blended by Jesse Katz, a Boulder native and Fairview High grad, who founded Devil Proof Vineyards and Aperture Cellars in California. (Katz also created a custom blend for the wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.) On the label of each bottle is an orange outline of eye-glasses, Millerís signature accessory, and his signature.

And with each was a note that 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!

-Von Miller

Respect level raised. Good job Von.

Now, if they'd just return the kindness by all chugging those bottles just prior to playing us it would be appreciated...

What an absolute class act. Wow.

Good thinking. Maybe it makes them all violently ill and depleted before a game. Hell, it doesn't even need to be against us!

You know, Von's play on the field has amazed me since the Superbowl, this amazes me more. Super classy move!

should have sent them a bag of weed and the note would say

"enjoy the drug test" Maybe he could get a couple Raiders suspended.

but seriously. I kind of want to try that wine out now.

DUI's for everyone!

He probably could've saved some $ and just gave all the Oakland players 40s of Ol' E. It is the champagne of Oakland after all.

Give Von's agent a raise.

Classy move.

If it was Von's idea, wow.

Von is a badass

They all get wine and all we get is this crappy thread!

Von told the offense, he wants his wine back. :D
