On one hand, all you can do is laugh at Rob Gronkowski’s Beavis and Butthead-level tweet yesterday.
But it’s the playoffs, so you know someone’s going to twist his juvenile brand of humor into motivation.
Gronkowski’s tweet regarding the Broncos which read “Heard their whole team is good at giving low blows,” would have been enough on its own, but punctuating it with the winking/tongue sticking out emoji took it to a new level (a level which resonates in junior high locker rooms around the land).
“It was a funny remark,” Broncos cornerback Bradley Roby said, via Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post. “I like stuff like that. That gets me amped up. I saw that last night, and I got wanting to play. So we’ll see. That’s all you can say. We’ll see.”
Of course, turning the crude double entendre (which I’m not even sure was more than a single, considering it’s Gronk) into bulletin board material is silly, and there were some who realized that.
“It’s just a distraction,” left tackle Ryan Harris said. “This game is going to be decided on the field on Sunday, not on some social media site.”
Thank God Harris didn’t punctuate that quote with an eggplant, or this thing might have really taken off.
