Rob Gronkowski does to Gatorade what PepsiCo did to Tiger Woods

Jamie McDonald

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has become something of a spiking savant.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a penchant for smashing any and all inanimate objects to the ground.

A microphone to the dais -- with Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Robert Kraft looking on -- as fans chant, “spike the mike!” during a pep rally in London:

Pigskin to the turf following a Buckingham Palace-themed TD strut:

And now, in a new commercial for BodyArmor SuperDrink, QB12’s favorite, if injured, target -- bedecked in a sweet, snowflake-speckled holiday sweater -- does to “the competition” what Gatorade’s parent company did to Tiger Woods after the golf superstar’s sex scandal went public.

Woods may have taken a 9-iron to a few energy beverages after PepsiCo became one of the first sponsors to drop-kick golf’s then-No. 1 to the sidelines back in 2009. Should the 14-time major champ need to dispose of the few Gatorade Tiger Focus containers that may be gathering dust somewhere in the nooks and crannies of his $60 million Florida cottage, Gronkowski offers a tweak to Woods' prime sponsor's familiar slogan: Just Gronk-Spike It!
