Patriots legend Ty Law describes 'surreal' process of Hall of Fame bust being sculpted

New England Patriots legend Ty Law will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 class, and the whole process of getting ready for the special day clearly has been an exciting experience for him.

Law posted a photo Tuesday to Instagram that showed his Hall of Fame bust being made. 

Here's what he wrote about this step in his Hall of Fame journey:

 

It is finally starting to set in DAMN IT!!! I’m going into the @profootballhof!! This has been a whirlwind experience since I got the knock on the door in ATL, but life moves so fast you don’t always get to reflect on what really happens. I was with the amazingly talented @benhammondfineart to start creating my bust and the process was surreal. Now I have to admit, my ass was hurting sitting in that chair for 7-8 hours, but it was worth every min!! Lol!!🤣 It’s not done yet, but I think we are off to a great start. Can’t wait to unveil the finished product in Canton, OH where it will live forever. I’m humbled, thankful and blessed

Julian Edelman laughs it up with Stephen Colbert in 'Late Show' appearance

Julian Edelman laughs it up with Stephen Colbert in 'Late Show' appearance

Julian Edelman visited the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Tuesday night and the Super Bowl MVP brought his three Super Bowl rings with him.

As Colbert handled the jewelry, he noted the size and heft of the rings and joked, "Do you need to go to the gym or do you just curl with these?"

The Patriots wide receiver was promoting his Showtime documentary, "100%: Julian Edelman" and when asked which ring was his favorite, he borrowed a line from his quarterback, and answers, as Tom Brady usually does, "the next one."

There was no beer-chugging (although we've seen that Edelman knows his way around thator strawberry-eating as in Brady's "Late Show" appearance, but Edelman also discussed meeting Brady as a rookie in 2009, and borrowing another Brady phrase, talked about how multi-functional the words "Let's Go!' have become for him and his teammates.

A discussion of Edelman's Jewish faith ended with him accepting a special gift signifying that from Colbert, a "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" kippa, the traditional Jewish headwear.

Check out Edelman's appearance in the video below:
