Rob Gronkowki has given the impression this season that he can do it all. Speaking Spanish, however, is not one of his strong suits.
The Patriots tight end, never one to back down from a challenge, conducted an interview with ESPN Deportes following Sunday's AFC Championship win over the Ravens. And although the interviewer, John Sutcliffe, translated each question he asked in Spanish to English during their conversation, it didn't stop Gronkowski from going bilingual.
"Hola, Me llamo Roberto," Gronk said before answering Sutcliffe's first question, which focused on New England's defensive effort.
After returning to English to answer the question, Sutcliffe then asked — in Spanish then English — about what it meant to give Patriots owner Robert Kraft another shot at a title after the passing of his wife, Myra, last offseason.
Before expressing his admiration for the Krafts, Gronkowski joked, "Repita, por favor."
Finally, Gronkowski was asked whether he planned on celebrating Sunday's victory. His response?
"Si. Yo soy fiesta."
Yes, Gronk, you are party.
