What makes these SportsCenter commercials so great is that they are easily relatable. We can all picture Karen from Accounting walking around sticking her diamond in everyone’s face, begging us to tell her it’s “perfect.” I’m the dude to look her dead in the eye and say in a cold tone, “We all die alone, Karen.” or “I saw that same one at the kiosk in the mall.” I’m a dick.
So when you add arguably the NFL’s most charismatic athlete in the mix, it’s bound to be entertaining. Could they have done more exposing Gronk’s dynamic personality? Probably. Would I have liked to see him hit on the hot receptionist instead? For sure. But I’ve always loved these commercials and will always love my boy Gronk, so I enjoyed thoroughly.
P.S. Kenny Mayne is the best. I met him in Vegas last spring (hammered) and he actually gave me the time of day when I interrupted his conversation with someone else. He miraculously took an interest in me, even asking me questions about myself. My parents don’t even do that. Love you, Kenny. Let’s meet up for lunch sometime.
