AP PhotosRob Gronkowski and Curt Schilling have a lot common -- starting with their footwear.
And now, adding to the “drama” comes word that Rob Gronkowski may wear a special cleat on Sunday.
Quick, quick, call the people from Heinz!
Mr. Suture himself, Curt Schilling, made a statement in 2004 with his Game 6 performance, exacting some revenge on the Yankees after 86 years of torture. Now, four years after the Giants put 18-1 into the sports vernacular, Gronk will try to pull a Schill.
In the meantime, we at ESPN New York thought it would be appropriate to put Gronk under further examination and see how he compares to Schilling.
