Rob Gronkowski can name the cast of Jersey Shore

February 1st, 2012

This makes him okay in my book, Boston affiliation notwithstanding.

Everything about Gronkowski seems oversize, from feet to personality. But his hands, sheathed in white gloves (“makes them look twice as big,” guard Logan Mankins said), are his most recognizable feature. At media day Tuesday, a television reporter asked Gronkowski if he could lean forward and compare hand sizes. His were roughly twice as big. Then she asked if he could name the cast from “Jersey Shore.” He obliged.
