GQ’s List of Coolest Athletes of All Time Features ‘Stunned’ and ‘Humbled’ Former Bruin Derek Sanderson

Bruins fans knew that Derek Sanderson was cool. Apparently, though, Sanderson wasn't all that familiar with that fact himself.

The former Bruins player and analyst called in to NESN Daily on Wednesday to talk about his most recent honor — being named to GQ Magazine's list of the 25 coolest athletes of all time.

Sanderson said that he was "stunned to hear the news (as were his children), but did make it clear how honored he was to be on a list alongside athletes like Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali, athletes Sanderson said "are sports."

He wasn't the only athlete with New England ties to make the list. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also ranked among the coolest athletes of all time.

Check out the video above to hear all of Sanderson's interview.
