Patriot party boy Rob Gronkowski is all over the place – literally and figuratively – these days. Except, that is, at the Boston Globe. The stately local broadsheet has a small item buried in today’s Names column.
The feisty local tabloid, though, really goes to town today. Start with the back page:
Inside, Karen Guregian gives Gronk a big helping of what-for:
Not such a grand slam
Rob Gronkowski is a 23-year-old single male who loves to have fun and provide entertainment for the masses. The Gronk is a party animal. That’s no secret.
Taken at face value, it’s hard not to appreciate and enjoy someone who so thoroughly enjoys life.
But then you watch the TMZ video of the Patriots tight end at the XS nightclub in Las Vegas on Sunday night, dancing shirtless on stage and lifting up a presumed friend and slamming him to the ground, wrestling-style.
This might seem like harmless fun, except Gronkowski was using his recently re-repaired broken left forearm to help hoist his friend up and over. According to a source close to Gronk, he didn’t appear to do any more harm to the forearm, which was in a long black cast.
But you still have to sit back and wonder what he was thinking.
Probably nothing, which seems to be his strong suit.
