Speed. Size. Power. And the frenzy they create in fans are just a few of the many commonalities.
Football players are larger than life athletes and monster trucks are larger than life machines that bring joy to man and boy alike.
This weekend in Foxborough the worlds of football and monster trucks are colliding as Monster Jam makes its first-ever stop at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots.
So that got us thinking, which Patriot would make the best monster truck? The options are endless and the possibilities limitless.
And I don’t see how there is any other answer. He is the big, athletic, versatile tight end. Monster trucks have to be big, fast and nimble. Gronk is a human version of a monster truck, so why shouldn’t there be a monster truck version of Gronk. He brings immediate joy to anyone he comes across, can run over or through anything in his way and ignites a crowd like no other. We’ve had Gronk Flakes and the Gronk Spike. Now we need Gronk in Monster Jam!
