Jalen Rose Apologizes For Saying Rob Gronkowski Was White Boy Wasted

Some stories are just the best. Rob Gronkowski dancing drunk and shirtless on stage with LFMAO was pretty much the best. But Jalen Rose (somehow) made it even better. Via Pro Football Talk:

Jalen Rose, the former NBA player who is now an ESPN analyst, appeared on Mike and Mike in the Morning to talk basketball but said at the outset of his appearance that he wanted to weigh in on Gronkowski first.

"Forgive this term because I didn’t make it up: He was having a good time. He was white boy wasted. He was having a good time," Rose said.

Okay, that's kind of the perfect description for the way Gronkowski looked in those videos. And in fairness to Gronk, wouldn't you get "white boy wasted" if you just lost the Super Bowl?

Anyway, the apology, again via PFT:

"Earlier in today’s show we were talking about the Patriots’ post-game party and I made some comments that other people — some people — took as insensitive remarks, so for those that took it that way I definitely apologize. Pretty sure I always say things that upset people, get under people’s skin. I guess today was no different. So I’m sorry for the pushback."

As Mike Florio adds, "Rose took on a joking tone in his initial comments, and his apology also sounded like a joke." Well, in fairness to Rose, MAYBE THAT'S BECAUSE THIS WHOLE THING'S A JOKE.

And it's still pretty hilarious.
