Kobe recruiting Gronk for Eagles?
So what did Bryant yell back at him?
"I told him the Eagles need a tight end," said Bryant, a Philadelphia native. "I’m recruiting. He’s a freak athlete. He shouted at me, I shouted back."
Somewhere, Brent Celek isn't amused.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft sat next to Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, while players Vince Wilfork, Patrick Chung, Julian Edelman, Brandon Spikes, Devin McCourty, Sterling Moore, Tiquan Underwood, and Gronkowski were all in attendance. The Patriots received a standing ovation from the crowd when a handful of players were displayed on the JumboTron in the first quarter.
Gronkowski earned some additional JumboTron time later in the game when someone with a sense of humor put him on the video board while an LMFAO song blared. Gronkowski has been in the headlines for dancing shirtless following the Patriots' Super Bowl loss last weekend in Indianapolis while LMFAO performed. Gronkowski just flashed his familiar smile when he realized he was on camera and limited his moves to a little head bob from his seat next to the TNT broadcast position at midcourt.
