INDIANAPOLIS -- If all of us can speculate about Rob Gronkowski’s ankle and whether he can play this Sunday, there’s no reason why Madonna shouldn’t weigh in on the subject as well.

So, when she was asked by a Boston TV reporter at her press conference Thursday if she thought Gronkowski would play this Sunday, she said she hoped he would (“So do I,” the reporter responded). The reporter also asked how she would respond if she suffered a high ankle sprain before her halftime performance.

“A lot of people would say I’m a masochist,” said Madonna, who's trying to work through a hamstring injury ((seriously). “I would just tape my ankle and say prayers. Take an anti-inflammatory and get my butt out there.”

Here’s hoping Gronkowski draws inspiration from those words.

In other news, a very nervous Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, representing the OCNN, asked Madonna what advice she would give to a young football player who planned on a long career. The answer was uninteresting, but on his follow-up, McCoy asked if he could have a kiss after the press conference.

Madonna sweetly smiled and shook her head. A stunning rebuke on what had been, up until that point, a jovial occasion.

Madonna seeks to inspire Gronkowski

Yeah, all she had to do was let a broad smile come out while she hesitated, then say "We'll see, Big Fella." That would've let him get props from his peeps for having the stones to ask. (As if ANYONE expected her to actually give him one.) As it is, he's gonna be dogged about that right into training camp. She's kinda always been that way, though. A little too serious about herself. Not selfish, so much as self-centered. Not much of a surprise, maybe. She didn't name an album and a tour "Blonde Ambition" for no good reason. There's a reason why the Romans put a slave in the chariot of a conquering general returning in procession to the City.

Madonna calling the Gronk out!  WOW, NOW HE HAS TO PLAY!  All he has to do is "Tape the ankle and say prayers.  Take an anti-inflammatory and get his butt out there."   :)  Shame on Gronk if he doesn't show up on that field.  ;)
