Samsonite Make Your Case: Monster Patriots?

710x380-20140620-monster-patriots.jpg

There are a lot of similarities between monster trucks and football players.

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.

Rob Gronkowski

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!

Vince Wilfork

Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo & their families checked out Grave Digger & more before Saturday's Monster Jam

There is no better manifestation of a monster truck than a nose tackle. Vince Wilfork is big and surprisingly, almost mystifyingly athletic for his size. He also has the oversized smile and aggressive personality that would befit a monster truck. And many fans may not know this, but Wilfork already drives a massive-monster truck like vehicle. Who could better race through a course and then squash junk car better than Big No. 75. Wilfork is the perfect Patriots candidate for Monster Jam.
