Rob Gronkowski scores Tampa Bay TD and revives Gronk spike mania
Former University of Arizona tight end Rob Gronkowski blew up the internet after snagging a touchdown catch on Sunday afternoon.
Gronkowski, who emerged from a brief football sabbatical to join his former New England Patriots teammate Tom Brady in Tampa, made the catch in the opening half of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ home game against the Green Bay Packers.
It was Gronkowski’s first touchdown catch as a member of the Buccaneers after hauling in 79 scores with the Patriots between 2010 and 2018.
The score and Gronkowski’s patented “Gronk spike” celebration immediately took the internet by storm, as our nation has long missed the tight end’s boyish enthusiasm.
The former Wildcat totaled 78 receiving yards on five catches Sunday in the Buccaneers 38-10 win over the Packers.
