The front pages of today’s local dailies illustrate all you need to know about the differences between the two.
That the Herald chose New England Patriot tight end Rob Gronkowski (best known for being lewd, crude, and often stewed) as its Poster Son is one thing; that his story is largely unremarkable is another (it’s one-half of Karen Guregian’s NFL Notes column).
That Diane Gronkowski’s expectations are so low is something else entirely.
Rob and his brothers, Gordie, Dan, Chris and Glenn were all well-fed and well cared for. That’s why “Robbie” as he is known to Mom, will be cooking up a special treat today. For her part, Diane Gronkowski would welcome something as simple as a visit. That’s all it would take to put a smile on her face today.
And all it took to put her son on the Herald’s front page.
