Julian Edelman has perfect birthday message for Rob Gronkowski

Julian Edelman has perfect birthday message for Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski turned 30 years old on Tuesday.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman wished his friend and former teammate a happy birthday with an A+ post on Instagram. Here's what he had to say:

He’s big, heeeees bad, he can’t be stopped! Happy 3-0 big guy. I’m sure you will have no trouble blowing the roof off the celebrations tonight. 😉🎉🍻 #YoSoyFiesta

Edelman continues to be on a roll with his Instagram game.

Also taking to social media to celebrate Gronk's 30th birthday was the NFL, which tweeted out an awesome video montage of the retired tight end's touchdowns throughout his career.

There's no doubt Gronk will be "blowing the roof off" the birthday celebrations tonight, just as he did during his retirement party in Las Vegas last week.

"Tom vs Time" receives Emmy nomination for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary

"Tom vs Time" receives Emmy nomination for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary

The start of football season is no longer the only reason Tom Brady will look forward to this fall. 

On Sunday, Brady announced on Twitter that his Facebook series "Tom vs Time" received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary. 

Coming off his sixth Super Bowl championship, Brady can't seem to lose anymore. Of course, we'll see if he takes home the award on September 17, where he'll have to take a break preparing for the Jets to attend the award show. 

As Brady nears the end of his playing career, this most likely won't be the last time we see him up for awards in entertainment. Couple that with his TB12 brand, and the greatest quarterback of all time seems to have a nice retirement plan set up for himself.

Take a look at this cool photo of Bill Belichick at the Preakness Stakes

While there won't be a Triple Crown winner this year, Bill Belichick is 2-for-2 in attending the legendary races. 

After spending some downtime with his girlfriend Linda Holliday and Tom Brady two weeks ago at the Kentucky Derby, the future Hall of Fame head coach was spotted at the Preakness Stakes, staring down the eventual winner War of Will before the horse secured its victory. 

You can spot Belichick to the left of the jockey right above War of Will's tail. 

War of Will rebounded from a controversial loss at the Derby, where the original winner Maximum Security appeared to impede War of Will and Country House. The race went under objection review, and Country House was declared the winner while War of Will dropped to seventh. 

With the win, War of Will may have solidified itself as the rightful contender for the Triple Crown even though it will not get the chance to capture the sport's highest achievement. 

And as Field Yates alluded to in his tweet, game recognizes game.
