One of the main reasons we know Rob Gronkowski is a genuinely goofy guy is the awkwardness he displays during interviews. Those of you who think he does stuff like this strictly for attention are wrong — that’s just Gronk being Gronk. Don’t believe it? Look no further than the New England Patriots tight end’s attempt at anchoring SportsCenter alongside Chris McKendry on Wednesday.
“I’m Rob Gronkowski,” he began. “Welcome to the latest live edition of SportsCenter. Alongside Chris McKendry, I’m Rob Gronkowski, again. Coming up, a lot to get to today. In addition to live reports with the Heat, Adam Schefter has details on Robert Griffin’s third recovery.”
Just read the damn teleprompter! Gronk clearly threw in that first “I’m Rob Gronkowski” in before realizing the producers of the show had that covered, which is why he wound up introducing himself twice. Did you expect anything less? When this dude tells you he’s sorry for partying, don’t believe him. He may be sorry that he’s not sorry, but he certainly isn’t sorry.
