Great Moments in Rob Gronkowski History: ‘I Threw Him Out of the Club’

You may have noticed that in the second half of last night’s Colts-Patriots game, one New England touchdown included Rob Gronkowski blocking a helpless Colts defensive back 10 yards off the field and into a golf cart.

Why did this happen?

Why did Gronk have to Gronk so hard on this particular play?

For one thing, that defensive back, Sergio Brown, is the guy Gronk was blocking when he broke his arm on an extra point two years ago. For another, Brown made the inexplicable decision to make things worse, talking trash to this monster of a human being.

“He was just yappin’ at me the whole time,” Gronkowski told CSN New England afterward. “So I took him and threw him out of the club.”

Excuse me.

Hold on.

Just give me a second. Just …

GRONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNK.

GRONK.

Gronk’s been Gronking all over the place for a few weeks now, but it’s really just setting in how lucky we are to have him back.

A few weeks ago, Bob Ryan said Gronkowski might be the greatest tight end ever to play, and I’m not here to argue, because I want to live in a world where Rob Gronkowski goes down in history. Watching Gronk play is the closest we’ll ever come to watching dinosaurs interact with normal animals.

And he’s back now. Everybody get outta the club.
