Trivia: On day two of the 2009 NFL draft, the Patriots traded their 3rd-round pick to the Jaguars for a 2009 7th-rounder and a 2010 2nd-rounder. With the 7th-round pick, New England selected Edelman (232nd overall). A year later, Belichick then traded the 2010 2nd-rounder acquired from the Jaguars in a deal to move up two spots. What player did he then select in the 2nd round of the 2010 draft?
(Answer at the bottom).
Hint: He caught a touchdown in Super Bowl XLIX.

On this day: In 1992, Denmark completed what commentator Martin Tyler described as “simply a footballing fairytale.”
Originally, the Danes failed to qualify for the ’92 UEFA European Championship after finishing one spot behind Yugoslavia. But the conflicts that erupted in the Balkans as the breakup of Yugoslavia ensued rendered their national team unable to play in the tournament. With that, UEFA promoted Denmark to take Yugoslavia’s place.
Inserted into a group that included host nation Sweden and traditional powerhouses England and France, experts predicted a quick exit for the Danes. After a draw against England and a loss to the Swedes, Denmark pulled off their first stunner of the tournament by upsetting France 2-1.
In the knockout round, they defeated the defending champions Netherlands on penalty kicks, advancing to the final to play an officially reunified German team. Danish goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel — who would go on to fame with Manchester United — played brilliantly, denying German forward Jurgen Klinsmann on multiple occasions.
And thanks to two “bolts from the blue,” Denmark shocked the world to win the Euros, 2-0. From not playing in the tournament to being crowned champions, it remains one of the great upsets in sports history.
And on this day in 1996, Rick Pitino and John Calipari were involved in an NBA draft television segment that hasn’t aged particularly well:
