Video: Fans get their Gronk on

Videographer Bill Greene set out yesterday to explore the practice of Gronking, in which fans imitate the signature move of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski — a ferocious spike.

The practice started when it was encouraged by hosts on the Sports Hub radio station as a local response to the Tebowing phenomenon that swept the country as Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow gained fame for his gridiron heroics.

Greene’s video was shot at a number of locations, and even includes a Baltimore TV reporter, who proclaimed, “he’s not going to have much of a chance to do this on Sunday.”

Want to get your Gronk on and win prizes? There’s a Gronking contest this afternoon at an AFC Championship Game party at the CBS Scene restaurant in Foxborough. It runs from 4 to 7 p.m., and among the prizes are tickets for the game.
