With the Patriots in London this week for today’s game against the Rams - as part of Roger Goodell’s ongoing plan for global domination -  demonstrative tight end Rob Gronkowski already became a hit with local fans when he spiked the microphone at a pre-game press conference. And when Gronkowski scored a touchdown in the second quarter of the Patriots 45-7 rout of St. Louis at Wembley Stadium, he further endeared himself to the home crowd when he paid tribute to British culture by doing his own unique version of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace … finished off by his patented Gronk spike, of course: (via mocksession.com) Video of the play HERE. Gronkowski went on to have a monster day, finishing with 146 yards and 2 TDs … and after his second score, Gronk showed off his anglophile side once again as he munched on some fish & chips and downed a pint in the back of the endzone. No, not really.

Fan presents pink penalty flags to NFL
