Everybody in Boston knows what today is. Today is when the RedSox are having a ceremony before tonight’s game to officially retire David Ortiz’s number 34. But before that takes place tonight, apparently last night there was a roast of Big Papi as a charity fund raiser for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund. You had different celebrities with connection to Ortiz and a former teammate Dustin Pedroia, which apparently Ortiz didn’t even know his actual first name but instead thought is was Pee Wee, step up to the podium and crack some jokes at the expense of Big Papi. But all of them failed to compare to New England Patriots super star tightend Rob Gronkowski. Gronk spared no man and as always stole the show. Most notably when he cracked this joke about Anthony Mackie and totally danced all over the Atlanta Falcons grave.
“Anthony Mackie was Falcon in Captain America: Civil War and you were terrible. I haven’t seen a Falcon look that bad since the second half of the Super Bowl… I didn’t even play in the fuckin’ game, and I’m still goin’ to the Hall of Fame.”
Dead. Skull emojis. The Falcons should just cancel their season now. There is no coming back from that. Gronk just spiked all over their grave and put them in a worse deficit to start this upcoming season than the Patriots were in when they were down to the Falcons 28-3 in the most recent Super Bowl. Thoughts and prayers are with the Falcons and their organization. Sorry for your loss.
