There’s a certain expectation when you have your bachelor party on St. Patrick’s Day — but even imagining the wildest scenario possible you probably don’t think of this.
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots pic.twitter.com/ySWLHhjuJN— John Breech (@johnbreech) March 17, 2018
It looks like Gronk. It sounds like something Gronk would say. And it’s been established that Gronk was in Nashville for St. Paddy’s Day — so all of this checks out. There’s something simple and beautiful about putting in the effort to don a fake beard and hat, but not give an eff enough to wear anything but workout shorts and a short-sleeved hoodie.
Little did Gronk know he wasn’t simply crashing any bachelor party, but that of John Breech — an NFL writer for CBS Sports, and son of long-time kicker Jim Breech.
I'm drinking at my bachelor party, so roll with this as you will... but Gronk was in the booth next to me at a bar, told a Patriots fan he WASN'T retiring. My dad (all-time leading scorer for Bengals) talked to him. Told him I was media, said TBD on retirement— John Breech (@johnbreech) March 17, 2018
So at least we got one solid piece of information out of this: Gronk is still mulling his retirement. That’s good news for Patriots fans, but it seems he’s weighing his options with “the 69ers,” which isn’t currently a team, but in Gronk’s imagination anything is possible.
