Today’s Boston Herald is all Rob Gronkowski all the time.
Page One (via the Newseum’s Today’s Front Pages):
And just in case you haven’t absorbed the seriousness of the situation, here’s the back cover of the feisty local tabloid:
Oh, yes, there are also three – count ’em, three – stories chronicling the Gronkastrophe. Ron Borges’ column serves as a representative sample:
FOXBORO — There are matchup problems and then there are no-match-for-this problems. The latter is what Rob Gronkowski represented to the Indianapolis Colts yesterday.
To be fair, Gronkowski has been a problem for nearly every defense he’s faced since he first arrived three years ago. But there are problems like “A man gets on a train going 70 mph at 3 p.m. and travels north for three hours. What time does he arrive at the station?’’ and there are problems like “A man gets on a train going 70 mph at 3 p.m. and travels north for three hours before changing to a train going 63 mph and heads east for two hours, stopping for a brief lunch and a smoke. He then switches to a bus traveling at 60 mph but forgot his hat. What time does he arrive in Albany?’’
Rob Gronkowski was the latter to the Colts. Whether the tight end continues to be a nightmare for future opponents remains to be seen since the Patriots [team stats] fear the Colts did to him what he did to the Colts, which is to say broke him.
As for the Boston Globe, how did they cover the Gronk out? Here’s the front page of today’s Sports section:
See it there upper right? It says, Gronkowski’s big game ends with broken left arm. C6.
No? It’s a Gronking shame.
