The Rob Gronkowski Party Bus Has a Name. Find Out What It Is…
If you had a party bus, what would you name it?
Good question, isn’t it? Kind of makes you think for a moment.
Now here’s an even better question for you: If Rob Gronkowski had a party bus, what would he name it?
Much to our surprise, there’s an answer to that question. The answer is “Sinners Bus.” We know that because the Rob Gronkowski party bus is a real thing. It’s owned by the New England Patriots tight end, and its name is “Sinners Bus.”
Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel recently sat down with Gronk to discuss many things, including the Rob Gronkowski party bus. Here’s an interesting excerpt from the piece:
Goon’s duties include driving and caring for the white party bus that’s parked in the driveway. Gronk bought it from a church on Long Island last summer, thoroughly renovated it and nicknamed it the Sinners Bus. It seats eight comfortably and includes hardwood floors, blinking lights and the kind of sound system one would expect from a nightclub on wheels. Goon flew to Long Island to pick it up and drive it back to Foxboro. It now doubles as an airport shuttle and a tailgate vessel for members of the Gronkowski family flying in for game weekends. “Just a normal party bus, nothing too crazy,” Dan Gronkowski, Rob’s older brother, says nonchalantly.
Believe it or not, Gronk’s ownership of the bus can be viewed more as a sign of maturity than of debauchery. After years of being an easy subject for iPhone paparazzi, with gawkers buzzing around him at bars and snapping shirtless photos that inevitably found their way online, Gronk has seen the value in hosting the party instead of seeking it. Goon serves as the driver and makes sure everyone gets home safely—instead of Uber, Gronk jokes, they have Goober. “You can still be having fun,” Gronk says, “but maybe it’s in more of a setting where people don’t know what’s going on.”
A party bus that makes you seem more mature? If anyone can do it, it’s Gronk.
