Gronk on the red carpet at the 2012 ESPYS  If the events of the past few weeks are any indication — not to mention every classic Ron Gronkowski moment from the past few years – all signs are pointing to the inevitable certainty that we are witnessing the gestational stages of “Summer of Gronk 2: Electric Boogaloo.” And now it has been announced that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski — who should have Poison’s “Nothin’ but a Good Time” played whenever he enters a room — will be serving as the Oscars Red Carpet correspondent for the Rich Eisen’s podcast. Yeah, this could either go brilliantly or be a complete train wreck. Either way, it cannot be disputed that it will be entertaining. Let’s just hope there aren’t any impromptu pee parties in the men’s restroom similar to the one Gronk engaged in after the ESPYS last year. According to a tweet from NFL Media PR retweeted by the Eisen Podcast’s Twitter account, Gronk will be conducting interviews with all the big stars, presumably while he’s nattily attired in a sharp tuxedo with its sleeves cut off and no shirt underneath — or maybe just a cummerbund and little else, because hey, that’s how Rob Gronkowski rolls. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will be the Oscars Red Carpet correspondent for @theeisenpodcast @richeisen, conducting interviews with the stars — NFL Media PR (@InsideNFLMedia) February 14, 2013   A best of Gronk on the Red Carpet will be part of @theeisenpodcast TV show airing Thursday, Feb. 28 at 8:30 PM ET on @nflnetwork — NFL Media PR (@InsideNFLMedia) February 14, 2013   All the beautiful people — with Rob Gronkowski in tow — will be descending on Hollywood in a little more than a week, as the 85th annual Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, Feb. 24 and the best of Gronk’s coverage will be featured on “The Rich Eisen Podcast” TV show scheduled to air on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 8:30 ET on the NFL Network. That’s Must-See TV if there has ever been such a thing. All I know is if the festivities don’t devolve into heinous, alcohol-fueled debauchery culminating in Gronk doing beer bongs with Joan Rivers, I’m going to be sorely disappointed.   TweetThe post Rob Gronkowski: Oscars Red Carpet correspondent for Rich Eisen’s podcast appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.
