If you answered Patriots' tight end, Rob Gronkowski, you get a gold star. Unfortunately, gold stars don't guarantee Super Bowls wins. I don't know about you, but just the mere thought of Gronk going under the knife, yet again, makes me very anxious. This is not a good development considering the recent changes to the Patriots' offense. *cough* Wes Welker *cough* This team can't afford to be thin behind Tom Brady.
At least this time around there was no dumb ass dance moves and body slamming that could make his injury worse. The Patriots told him to knock it off and he seems to have taken that advice to heart. It would be a shame if this stupid broken arm was the beginning to the end of this nearly 24-year-old. I refuse to believe this will be career-ending, but if history is any indication, I'll be surprised if this kid ever plays a full season. For a big, tough guy, he's pretty fragile.
Imagine if Gronk turns out to be a lemon...that's some very expensive citrus.
