Kyle Van Noy hilariously photobombs ESPN reporters as 'dude in the blue jacket'

Kyle Van Noy hilariously photobombs ESPN reporters as 'dude in the blue jacket'

Even after winning a couple Super Bowls, Kyle Van Noy still can go unrecognized in a crowd.

The New England Patriots linebacker was minding his own business on the ESPYs red carpet Wednesday night in Los Angeles when he unwittingly wandered into a photo with prominent ESPN reporters/analysts Ramona Shelburne, Jackie MacMullan and Michelle Beadle.

So, Shelburne called out the photobomb on Twitter, but little did she know...

In Shelburne's defense, all three women are NBA reporters, and Van Noy isn't exactly a household name outside New England.

But that didn't stop Patriots fans from informing Shelburne just who that "dude in the blue jacket" was.

Fortunately, both Van Noy and Shelburne were good sports about the whole situation.

When he wasn't sneaking into random photos, Van Noy yukked it up with Patriots teammates Deatrich Wise Jr., Stephon Gilmore, David Andrews and retired tight end Rob Gronkowski, although the defending Super Bowl champs lost out on the "Best Team" ESPY to the U.S. women's national soccer team.

Twitter had jokes after Tom Brady ripped his pants during 'The Match'

Twitter had jokes after Tom Brady ripped his pants during 'The Match'

Tom Brady's Sunday afternoon of golfing with Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson was eventful, to say the least.

The ex-New England Patriots quarterback began "The Match" by struggling through the first six holes. Then, he finally got back on track with an amazing shot that briefly quieted the naysayers.

Unfortunately for Brady, the shot may have been overshadowed by him simultaneously splitting his pants. Just look at the photo below:

As you can imagine, Twitter had some fun with Brady's mishap:

It's OK, Tom. It happens to the best of us.

Tom Brady has a thing for comebacks.

The former New England Patriots quarterback was struggling mightily through the first few holes of "The Match" on Sunday. Then, he totally redeemed himself.

Just watch this shot below and enjoy:

"Shut your mouth, Chuck," Brady said to Charles Barkley, who had been chirping him throughout the match.

We should have known a comeback was around the corner. Didn't 28-3 teach us anything?

Just as Twitter had a field day with Brady's early struggles, it enjoyed watching Brady sink that improbable shot:

Bravo, Tom. Bravo.
