And Spicer giggled like a schoolgirl about it. "He's famous and he talked to ME!" *fans self with hands, passes out*

Athletes are well known for their courting of Spice Girls.

David Beckham gets Posh Spice, Gronk gets Shouty Spice.

Oh those wacky zany whitehouse shenanigans.  It's a good thing there isn't anything important going on for this to distract us from.

Scripted distraction to get Spicer a cute little clip that will get played over and over and distract from real issues.

Good ole gronk, able to set aside this toxic and farked up political environment to be a goofball. we should all look to the gronk as the way forward in these deeply troubling times.

why the hell is this news?
where the hell was he when Bud Dwyer held his press conference?

Gronk lives the life every man only dreams he could. He's the best in the world at his job (when healthy) on an incredibly successful team, makes a ton of money, chases tail and parties in his downtime, and always appears to be enjoying the hell out of it while not seeming like too much of an asshole. It's hard to dislike the guy.

In a sense, in a very real sense, at times like these we are all Gronk.

Something about grabbing is considered ok these days.  Most of the Gronk party cruise seems like it would be acceptable behavior at the moment.
 
2017-04-19 02:21:10 PM  
What the hell is a Gronk? Sounds like the forgotten Muppet.

It took a New England Patriot to bring integrity back to the press briefing room.
 
2017-04-19 02:21:40 PM  
Well, at least one Patriot tight end is having a fun day.
 
2017-04-19 02:22:20 PM  
Where have you gone, Rob Gronkowski?
Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

Call me cynical, but I thought it was a setup as well. Spicey needs all the positive press he can get. A little humor doesn't hurt.

It would have been even better if Gronk had tackled Spicey.

You do know that when Hollywood re-makes Blazing Saddles (some writer in a broom closet is working on the script) Gronk will be Mongo.

Please don't give them any ideas, there is no way in hell a remake of that film could ever be any good.  It was a product of its time, it needs to be left there.

LordOfThePings: What the hell is a Gronk? Sounds like the forgotten Muppet.


Ditto. And who cares?

And I'm not even going to bother looking it up.
 
2017-04-19 02:32:02 PM  
I don't mind that he broke decorum.   The world needs more of that.

But, i mind that he was allowed to apparently wander around and poke his head in random doors.
 
2017-04-19 02:33:23 PM  
Gronk: heeyyyYYYYYY SPISA! YOu need a hand in here?

Spicer: No, Mr. Gronkowski. Thanks.

Gronk: You suuuurreee?

Spicer: No. Thank you Mr. Gronkowski

Gronk: (fist pumping with shades and a boombox) SIXTY- NIIIIIIIIIIIIINE

He probably has a well-thumbed copy of "A Gronking to Remember" under his mattress.

If he shows up missing, it's because he found someone talking in Russian. Just like the ending of the first season of 24.

This is a great clip, love Gronk. It seems to have confused some of the know-it-all-basement-dwelling-nerds here, though, as I read the comments.

Based on his past antics I think Gronk just said fark it and did it.  I think the only thing he does that is scripted are his plays on the field.

/This is a guy who tried to trick a female reporter into saying 69 during an interview.

Is there a limit to how many lummoxes can aimlessly wander around the West Wing at one time? Because there ought to be.

I think it's just a 'roll your own' White House etiquette rules now.

This being Fark though, I expect numerous people will have a problem with it.

Comment and reply on the other thread.

bainsguy: Tr0mBoNe: So... who's actually cumming?

Gronk just dropped into Spicey's presser, so at least him, I'm guessing.

They'll have a hell of a time replacing Clevon Little and Gene Wilder.

That movie never gets old.

He is a sportsball player? Notice how I call it 'sportsball' because I am so far above these trivialities that I don't even know the proper term for the game. Now excuse me, my little pony is on the tv.
