— It was announced on Tuesday Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bündchen will serve as co-chairs for the 2017 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Met Gala on May 1.

The power couple will join Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Anna Wintour as chairs of the annual event.

Brady and Gisele are no strangers to the Met Gala and have made many memorable appearances on the red carpet there.

—  Sammy Sosa has long-denied using performance enhancing drugs during his career and now says he believes the scrutiny he faces is comparable to what Jesus Christ faced.

“It’s like Jesus Christ when he came to Jerusalem. Everybody thought Jesus Christ was a witch, and he was our savior,” Sosa said to told former Cubs media relations employee Chuck Wasserstrom for an interview on Wasserstrom’s blog. “So if they talk s–t about Jesus Christ, what about me? Are you kidding me?”

Sosa spent 18 years with the Cubs before he was traded in 2004.

“I have my pride, and I know I had a tremendous career in Chicago,” Sosa said. “When nobody knew who Chicago was, I put Chicago on the map. Like you said, if I could have done it again, I would have done it differently.”

Sosa also said he would “never say no” if the Cubs asked him to return in some capacity but the organization would have to reach out to him.

“A lot of people say so many things, but I’m telling you — they have nothing on me,” Sosa continued. “I’m not going to go out there begging, because they have no case. They had the Mitchell report trying to find something, but they had nothing on Mr. Sosa.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I really don’t hold grudges. I mean, I remember everything, but I move on. Envy and jealousy are incurable diseases. The haters still hate. And I understand it, and we’ll do our best to keep them in that position.” — Robert Kraft, on his feelings for the NFL after Deflategate
