After being a huge stage success last year at the University of Rhode Island with his “Evening With Gronk” lecture night, UConn has hired Rob Gronkowski to bring his hijinks to the prestigious Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts, February 28 at 7 p.m. It will be the best $10 students will ever spend on that campus. You might remember last year’s Gronk lecture where he played F, Marry, Kill and said he’d eff Tebow just to take his virginity. Suddenly, Gronk is a hot ticket. The Rhode Island show was his first lecture show and entry was $7. UConn has bumped that number to $10 and $15 for non-students. The Jorgensen Center isn’t just some random lecture hall. Branford Marsalis will be playing there tonight. According to the school: The program will be presented in an intimate moderated interview format; Gronk will be sharing some of his most intriguing stories and facts about his life inside and out of the National Football League. The live on stage program will include video clips and will be followed by an animated question & answer session with audience members. Maybe he’ll get shirtless and slam a student. At $10, you can’t pass up that kind of entertainment. [Buy Tickets] Filed under: Football
