Rob Gronkowski is a crowd pleaser. If that means adapting his touchdown celebration in a way that he believes will allow the fans in London to relate to it, so be it. After scoring his first touchdown against the Rams on Sunday, Gronk attempted to pay tribute to the Welsh Guards who watch over Buckingham Palace. The thought was there. The execution and ensuing explanation? Not so much. “That little nutcracker dude that’s guarding the house,” Gronkowski said when asked about the celebration according to the Boston Herald. “I like how he just sits there and stays still. It’s pretty cool.” At least it made sense in Gronk’s head, because Tom Brady had a different take. “I don’t know what the hell he was doing,” Brady said. What’s not to get? He was imitating that little nutcracker dude. It was the perfect way to cap off a week in which he also ignited a London audience with this epic microphone spike. It’s comments like these that help us understand why the Patriots have Gronk under a gag
