No, not at the same time. That’s later tonight.
First, let’s start with the cool thing Rob Gronkowski did with his clothes on, which narrows down the list of his daily activities considerably. The Triple-A baseball All-Star game is being held in Buffalo this year, and since he’s a proud Buffalo native, Gronk was invited to participate in the celebrity home run derby prior to the actual home run derby. The other celebrities–a word we’re using very, very loosely here–were Bills running back Fred Jackson, Buffalo QB legend Jim Kelly, Bills CEO Russ Brandon, and some guy named Nick Bakay.
They all withered when faced with the power of the Gronk, who won the derby with 12 home runs over two rounds. As is the case with every celebrity home run derby that’s designed to make people laugh at B-listers who mostly suck at baseball, there was a kiddie fence that cut the outfield in half, and any ball hit over it counted as a home run. It didn’t matter, though, because Gronkowski still smashed a few over the real fence.
Please enjoy this grainy video with commentary from a gaggle of 12 year olds. One of Gronkowski’s drives that sailed over 400 feet is at the end…
After already establishing himself this summer as the belly shot champion and the new Zubaz ambassador, Gronkowski can add home run champ to his resume of awesomeness. But that isn’t even the most Gronk thing he’s done this week, and it’s only Tuesday.
A few weeks ago it was announced that Gronkowski would appear in ESPN’s body issue, and the news that he’s been selected as one of the six cover subjects is about as surprising as Kate Upton’s appearance on the cover of the SI Swimsuit issue. Or, more generally, Upton’s appearance anywhere while wearing a bikini in any place that male eyes frequent.
So gaze upon Gronk wearing only hulk fists. This pose is also his finishing move. What happens when he strikes this one in da club, even with clothes on? deal = sealed.
