    Great Pics. I especially like this one.

    Is anyone else worried that Gronk appears to be listed to the left, and baring all of his weight on that left leg/foot, which takes pressure off his right one. It's like he's favoring that leg by not putting his full weight on it. I guess you'd expect that with a guy with a high angle sprain that is nursing a tender ankle so he can play in football in another day.

    .............. cept that his left angle is the one that is supposedly hurt. :eek: :cool:

    Anyone ever had a severe angle sprain? That's not a normal pose for someone experiencing ANY residual pain or tenderness. The body naturally favors the non "tender" side. You can fake a non-limp in front of camera, but your not gonna go against a natural pain response in an unguarded moment noone is paying close attention to.

    I think Papa Gronk may have perpetrated the greatest "false injury" sideshow in the history of the Super Bowl. Calling it now. Gronk is close to 100% for the game. :rocker:

    Exactly what I had been thinking.

    He unconciously IS leaning on the left ankle there. He wouldn't be doing that if it was a problem. The pic is NOT inside out - - the numbers are not backwards or anything.

    The plot thickens........

    It gives me the same warm vibe as a stretching pic from yesterday. Though I never played, and I hope you forgive the nerdy reference, I've got to love our OGRE. :D

    I was just looking at that and thinking, "if it's his right ankle that's hurt, there is NO way he is playing tomorrow." That pic looked like he was favoring the right side so much I figured he could barely walk.

    After reading this and seeing it's his left ankle that's "hurt" I agree with you completely. I think he's fine and that is a big reason BB has been so relaxed all week.

    My gut's been saying it for 2 weeks, but now I'm gonna say it: Patriots blowout, here we come ... :rocker:

    [Edit: I love a good coincidence. Just for chuckles I'm reading the synopsis on Wikipedia. Wouldn't you know, Fred Williamson played "Ogre" :eek:]
