Rob Gronkowski‘s nonstop party of a life has been undeniably amusing to follow from afar. So, when the Patriots recently told Gronk to stop being, well, Gronk, understandably a lot of people were disappointed, perhaps even devastated.
You can probably count former NHL star Jeremy Roenick in that bunch. Roenick recently spoke with NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport and talked about his practically holy admiration for Gronkowski:
“I’m a Patriots fan,” Roenick said. “I grew up in Boston. I’m a big Patriots fan, a big Wes Welker fan, a big Tom Brady fan. So, being from that area, the Gronk is the next best thing to Jesus Christ, in my opinion. (Laughs) So, That’s my team.”
Tim Tebow is either incredibly jealous or incredibly offended by that declaration.
