Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski, best known for posing with porn starts, hosting topless pool parties, getting spanked by dudes at Super Bowl after-parties, appearing nude on the cover of ESPN’s magazine and offering to take Tim Tebow’s virginity, tells Out Sports he’s cool with having a gay teammate.
Out Sports’ Cyd Zeigler thoroughly probed this tight-end managing to milk this response from The Gronk:
“Have you ever played with a gay teammate?” asked Cyd.
He thought for a moment and said he didn’t know of any.
“How would you feel if one of your teammates on the Patriots came out of the closet this season?”
This time he didn’t pause.
“If that’s how they are, that’s how they are,” Gronkowski said. “I mean, we’re teammates so, as long as he’s being a good teammate and being respectful and everything, that’s cool.”
Good reporting from Out Sports, but unfortunately they are not as seasoned of a professional as markatlage. I would have been more “Barbara Walters” like asking her signature question:
If you were a tree, how big and thick would your tree be (I think that is how Barbara’s question goes or it’s very similar)?
Then I would go on to ask the very important deep personal questions:
Would he spank his Gay teammate’s butt after a good play? Invite him to the boys night out? Give him a massage after a rough practice? Pick up his teammates’ soap off the shower room floor? Go commando in the after-game therapeutic hot tub?
Questions we need answered. And I’d do a one on one with The Gronk to get them.
