Gronk steals show with mike spike

LONDON -- Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski stole the show at Saturday's FanFest in Trafalgar Square by executing one of his trademark touchdown spikes ... with a microphone.

Gronkowski was on stage alongside Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady, punter Zoltan Mesko and wide receivers Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker.

Questions were asked of each person on stage, and toward the end of the Patriots' appearance, Gronkowski played to the thousands in attendance, some of whom urged him for a spike.

"Gronk showed his true colors," Patriots owner Robert Kraft said afterwards. "Let's hope he does that during the game tomorrow."

Boston Herald photographer Matthew West was on the scene and captured the video (link here).
