A tip of the cap to the Toucher and Rich show on 98.5 The Sports Hub for a fun, local one-off the "Tebowing" trend, the internet sensation where people post photos in which they get down on one knee and pray like Broncos quarterback TimTebow.

Was listening to the show on Monday when co-host Rich Shertenlieb suggested that Patriots fans honor the Patriots tight end the way Broncos fans are honoring Tebow. "Gronking", of course, would involve mimicking Gronkowski's infamous spike after touchdowns. The show's hosts encouraged fans to submit photos of themselves "Gronking" all sorts of things, and their Facebook page is full of pictures of people "Gronking" everything from household items to mannequin legs.
A creative idea from a couple of creative guys. Check out their web site if you'd like to contribute.
