For all the peeps that don’t know who Jeremy Roenick is, he is an ex-hockey star and also a huge fan of the New England Patriots:

I’m a Patriots fan,” Roenick told me. “I grew up in Boston. I’m a big Patriots fan, a bigWes Welker fan, a big Tom Brady fan. So, being from that area, the Gronk is the next best thing to Jesus Christ, in my opinion. (Laughs) So, That’s my team. Unfortunately, Indianapolis was my other team because Peyton Manning was very much a favorite of mine. And that just didn’t work well. Now he’s in Denver, but still a problem.” –

 So, JESUS CHRIST ranks number one on his list and number two is Rob Gronkowski. I guess that is not blasphemy. Wonder what Tim Tebow thinks about this.

‘The Gronk’ has a fan in the Roenick! Even when Gronk is trying to lay low from the media, his name still keeps finding a way to resurface.
