Quotes about receiving awards
Police officers risk their health just by showing up for their jobs every day.

And then there are the cases of extreme risks -- life-threatening risks -- like the ones four Aurora officers took last year that earned them the city's prestigious Medal of Valor. Chief Kristen Ziman bestowed the medals Wednesday to Ryszard "Rick" Drozdowski, Bradley Vonhoff, Colin Griffin and Matthew Huber for their work in two dangerous situations.

Since his meteoric rise from backup quarterback to Super Bowl champion in the 2001 season, Tom Brady has been the franchise player of the New England Patriots. He’s won five Super Bowls, four Super Bowl MVPs, two NFL MVPs, and made 13 Pro Bowls. But most fans are more than aware of these accolades. Here are 41 things you might not know about the 41-year-old quarterback: 1. He unintentionally dozed off for 20 or 30 minutes before his first Super Bowl.
