Rob Gronkowski has a very special message for you

Shutdown Corner

For the second year in a row, the public will be voting on the cover athlete for the Madden video game franchise. You know, because it worked out so well last year when we were all forced to own a picture of Peyton Hillis.

This year, each team has two candidates in the mix. Rob Gronkowski is one of the Patriots' entrants, and he has a message for you. It goes a little something like, "YO SOY MADDEN COVER."

Fine. I'll vote for Rob Gronkowski, on one condition. He wears his Zubaz pants on the Madden cover. I don't think Gronk will have much of an issue with that, since he wears them just about everywhere, as does his entire Gronktourage. Also, it's a little known fact that wearing Zubaz pants makes the wearer impervious to the Madden curse. It also makes them impervious to not being a super awesome bro.

I'm hyped. I'm Gronk'd. Just in time for the weekend.
