Rob Gronkowski Goes Full Buckingham Palace Guard with New Gronk Spike

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 29, 2012

When you take the Gronk out of the country to spread the goodwill that is the NFL, great things are going to happen. 

On Sunday, that New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams met at Wembley Stadium. While the Patriots decided to actually play the football game, the Rams opted to walk around and stumble into one another for four quarters. 

By the end of the farce, the Pats had dispatched of the hapless Rams 45-7, Tom Brady had passed for over 300 yards and Rob Gronkowski had a new victory dance. 

Here is the best from Gronk this weekend, a touchdown Gronk Spike with English flair. 

Many instantly believed he was pretending to be a Buckingham Palace guard, and Gronkowski explained that he indeed meant that, sort of.

Thanks to Jeff Howe, we have a far more colorful explanation.

 

When asked what the dance was, Gronkowski responded, "That little nutcracker dude that's guarding the house."

The play came on the first of Gronk's two touchdowns and was the cherry on top of a sundae of a day where he caught eight passes and accumulated 146 yards. 

The summer of Gronk may be over, but the fall seems to be destined for greatness.
