In an effort to show some holiday spirit, Von Miller sent every single player on the Raiders, Chiefs, and Chargers—including the dudes on both the practice squads and injured reserve—a bottle of wine recently. That comes out to somewhere around 250 bottles. Good thing he's got the dough for it.
According to the Denver Post's Nikki Jhabvala, the wine was blended by Jesse Katz, who notably blended custom wine for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding. On each label of vino—which is called The Setting—is Miller's signature and a symbol of his hipster glasses. Additionally, each bottle also comes with a custom note that contains the following message:
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!
The Broncos currently sit at 7-4 and are in third place in what may be the NFL's best division. For Miller's sake, here's hoping this act of benevolence bumps that other story about him out of the news cycle for awhile.
