Rob Gronkowski stepped up to the podium yesterday, but he wasn't in the mood to talk football. "Maybe I'll go for a full speed ride once I get comfortable". "I know he will come back strong and healthy and I am excited to see him race again very soon".
Gronkowski told NBC Sports Boston on Saturday that he is training for dirt bike racing.
For once, we have Gronkowski-related injury news that won't directly affect the New England Patriots. "I'm working hard, riding these bikes, just drinking Monster Energy drinks so you can get wild, do insane stuff that people don't like when I do it, but I'll just do it...get insane".
New England head coach Bill Belichick is infamous for his rigid and impersonal approach to his players and for crafting a locker room that is predicated on putting the team above all, suffocating individuality at the expense of unprecedented success. Those rumours have been floating around ever since the Patriots 41-33 loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, after which Gronk said he would seriously consider his playing future.
Amazon's top-secret "Vesta" program is for building home robots
It's worth pointing out that Vesta will be different from the robots built by Amazon's Robotics subsidiary in MA and Germany. There are exceptions such as the vacuuming Roomba and, of course, Amazon's own home assistant Echo .
Gronkowski and Brady are reportedly among those frustrated by the Butler benching.
Gronkowski also confirmed he would not be attending Patriots optional workouts, which started last week.
"This horse is a victor and I love a victor", Gronk the human said shortly after buying in on the horse. Bill Belichick has previously traded away players who had drawn battle lines over their contracts in the past, most notably with camp holdout Deion Branch in 2006. "I'm just here today in the present", Gronkowski said. "I'm all in: Welcome to the Gronk Family, Gronkowski the Horse!" The Patriots need Gronk to be a leader and not a distraction. Here's to 2018 being kinder to both Gronkowskis the rest of the way than it has been up to this point.
"The other one? When it comes down to time", Gronk said.
