Thousands of protesters gathered for the Women's March "Power to the Polls" rally in Las Vegas on Sunday, kicking off a national drive to register a million new voters as well as put more female candidates in office and stymie President Donald Trump's agenda. The march came a day after hundreds of thousands of women and male supporters took to the streets of New York, Washington and other cities for a series of Women's March protests that marked the first anniversary of Trump's inauguration. The mass demonstrations, while drawing fewer attendees than the millions of people who marched last year, suggested that the anger felt by many women after Trump's surprise election was still palpable.

Watch: Tom Brady Tells Cameraman to Get the 'F--- Out the Way!'

As you may have heard, Tom Brady is dealing with a hand injury in the Patriots' matchup with the Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game. So it's quite understandable if he's being extra cautious to not pick up another knock. When Brady was jogging onto the field during pregame, he thought a cameraman was somewhere he shouldn't be. He let him know what he should do next: His cameraman fear is not completely unfounded. Before Ohio State's game against Michigan last season, Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett was injured when an out-of-place cameraman knocked into his knee during warmups. Brady made sure he wouldn't suffer a similar fate.
