Robert Kraft bumps into Rob Gronkowski at Tent City at the Cirque de Sportface – the epicenter of funky activities feeding into Super Bowl Super Space on Sunday.
“Hey Gronk, come over here to this tent, I think you might enjoy this,” says Kraft.
They enter the hypnosis tent where a guy in dyed blond hair a cut off blue sweatshirt sits and waits for his next victim.
He shakes the tight end’s hand and has him sit down.
“Just relax, Gronk. Close your eyes. Stare at the end of this football. Imagine it’s a spiral pass from Tom Brady. Watch it turn and turn. Breath in. Now count back from six and keep doing it over and over. Six is for the number of Super Bowl rings Bill Belichick has won.”
“Six, five, four, three, two, one,” says Gronk.
He keeps staring at the spinning football.
“Six, five, four…” Gronk drifts off. He’s in a trance, ready to be hypnotized.
“OK, Gronk, now I want to imagine you’re in the game on Sunday. Brady throws you a pass. You catch it. Then run in the opposite direction of the Tom Brady touchdown. Run into Chiefs endzone. That’s your job on Sunday. Do your job, Gronk”
“I see it,” says Gronk. “I’ll do it. But why did you ask me to count back from six because Belichick won six bowls? Seemed sort of random.”
“Don’t worry about that, Gronk,” said the hypnotist. “You just do your job on Sunday.”
“And I’ve heard that ‘do your job’ thing many times. My former coach Belichick always used to tell me to do my job.”
“Just do your job, Gronk,” says the hypnotist.
Gronk leaves the tent.
Bill Walton and Ricky Williams are next in line to get hypnotized.
“How’d it go, Gronk?” asked Walton.
“I’m ready for Sunday,” says Gronk. “I know what I’m supposed to do.”
“Catch touchdown passes, right?”
“No, catch passes and run to the Chiefs endzone.”
“Wow, how awesome a hypnosis is that?” says Walton. “The whole world will be watching Gronk will catch passes and run the wrong way. It’ll be the most fantastic football moment this Earth has ever witnessed.”
Walton and Ricky go in together to get simultaneously hypnotized.
“Hey Ricky, let’s tell the hypnotist we wanna be in a trance all the way through the entire Super Bowl. And let’s have him tell us to take a bong hit on the deck of the pirate ship every time Gronk reaches the wrong endzone, or the right endzone, or catches a pass or blocks somebody.”
