Glenn Gronkowski, a freshman fullback at Kansas State, learned this past weekend that being brothers with the star tight end of the New England Patriots gets you no special treatment.
Gronkowski, who's brother Rob just signed a monster deal and was recently seen almost naked on the cover of ESPN Magazine, was treated to a little, um, friendly welcome to college football this past weekend as a new member of the Kansas State Wildcats. Teammates shaved the top of his head — ala the Friar Tuck look the Broncos gave Tim Tebow — left a patch in the front and a little in the back and shaved the number "69" into it. And no, that's not his number on the field.
As Gronkowski remarked on his Twitter page as he posted the photo: "Real mature."
At least it's just hair and he'll probably be allowed to shave it after a week or so. I think the worst part of this haircut is having it done in the same room where someone forgot to flush the toilet. Now, that's just nasty.
