Brace yourself, Louisville. It looks like the New England Patriots are coming to town. Wide receiver Julian Edelman, fifth from right, uploaded a photo of himself and some of his teammates on Friday in front of a plane with the caption “#brosweekend #derbytme [sic]” and it looks like a party.
Quarterback Tom Brady, center, who was spotted at the race last year with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, is in the mix, as is tight end Rob Gronkowski, third from right.
Suffice to say, the mint juleps will definitely be served spiked this weekend — and with Gronk on board, you can take that literally.
