Rob Gronkowski Missing a Free-Throw to Keep the Score at 69 is the Most Gronk Thing Ever

Gronk 69

If I posted the following excerpt from, edited out the names, and asked you to identify who this high school basketball coach was talking about, chances are you would have guessed New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

That’s because this is pretty much the most Gronk move ever.  Have a read:

“So we’re playing a home game and we have 68 points – now it’s not a blowout, but it’s not a particularly close game either. So he [Gronkowski] gets fouled and goes to the free throw line. He hits the first one to get us to 69 and the place goes nuts because he’s playing into it. On his next free throw, he purposely chucks the ball off the backboard and misses so the score would stay at 69 and then runs back on defense pointing at the scoreboard.”

Gronk doesn’t need no lousy Super Bowl Media Day in order to give us the best story of the week.
