Gronk Shaves His Head For Charity; Enjoys A Sunday Funday In The City-By-The-Sea.
There aren’t many tweets that tell a town that a serious party is about to begin, but this was one of them.
What’s going in in Newport ri ?
— Julian Edelman (@Edelman11) June 8, 2014
What did Edelman do? Well, like any man of means who’s read the Newport Phrasebook, he headed straight to the Clarke Cooke House.
Unfortunately, he was tired and shagged out after a long day being Edelman…
It’s a good thing he took it easy and recharged, because one of New England’s greatest party animals was about to introduce everyone to a serious Sunday Funday. Rob Gronkowski woke up Sunday morning and thought, “I’m going to raise a bunch of money to help kids fight cancer and then I’m going to Newport to get my buddy Edelman ****ed up.” So that’s exactly what Gronk did.
Here he is at the #BuzzForKids event, getting his noggin clipped.
Then Gronk grabbed Ridley and headed down to Newport. They met up and headed to the Landing, where they were stalked by Newport Creeps Brendan O’Rourke and Jon-Michael “Nesi” Veronesi.
Gronk babysat for Rachel Condelli…
Then he and Edelman gave Taylor Prescott a wave.
Amanda Puleo thought the Patriots were Pokemon and collected them all for an endorsement of Resqwater.
Shannon Buss grabbed Gronk for a pic too…
Gronk may not realize it yet, but he’s now one half of Newport’s newest power couple with Brittany Doherty.
Lisa Murgo grabbed a pic with Ridley at The Deck while enjoying a Gansett Del’s Shandy…
The Deck’s line to get a pic with Gronk wasn’t Ladies Only…
Apparently Ridley wasn’t as interesting as one fan’s phone… Unfortunately, not everyone got to meet their heroes…
Gronkowski and Edelman literally just left the bar I’m entering, can I kill myself now or later — Bridget Ginley (@blginley) June 9, 2014
So congrats to all the Newporters who got to hang with some of the NFL’s coolest cats…and someone get Edelman a Red Bull.
