DATELINE: Yum-Yum, Eat’em UP
Rob Gronkowski has started to rev up his personality for the forthcoming football season. They begin stretching and yoga this week at the Patriots camp, and it has Gronk excited, according to a new interview.
You have to pick up your Gronk pieces of resistance now because once his game face comes on, there will be little humor.
As astute interviewer asked him to name the three people in the world with whom he’d like to have dinner.
The answer deserves a bit of deconstruction. He named Channing Tatum, The Rock Dwight Johnson, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governator.
He did not hesitate with this group, which means he likely was not joking. What on earth would they talk about over banana daiquiris?
There are common denominators. First and foremost, we are talking about people in movies. The Rock moved from sports to traditional action star—and Arnold was once a body beautiful who became a sci-fi staple. Channing is a danseur comedian par excellence as we saw in Magic Mike.
Have we here a glimpse of the post-football career of Gronk? Is it possible he will appear in the next Magic Mike, as the next Terminator, and as a hirsute version of Dwight Johnson?
Already a sharp performer, Gronk calls himself “one-take” Gronk for his ability to hit his marks before the camera.
Yes, he would pick these brains about the next direction for a most interesting personality. Like Rock, Channing, and Arnold, Gronk will join those known by only one name. There can be no one else like him.
