David Bowie sang the words “Ground Control to Major Tom” and it is time to say “Ground Control To Rob Gronkowski”, we need you Gronk. According to Wikipedia” “Space Oddity” tells the story of an astronaut named Major Tom, who is informed by Ground Control that a malfunction has occurred in his spacecraft. Major Tom does not get the message because he either misses it or is in such awe of outer space he does not hear it.
Major Tom remains in space “sitting in a tin can, far above the world”, preparing for his lonely death. In 1969, Bowie compared Major Tom’s fate to the ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey, saying: “At the end of the song Major Tom is completely emotionless and expresses no view at all about where he’s at. He’s fragmenting and at the end of the song his mind is completely blown, he’s everything then.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fans are here to tell Gronk that there is a malfunction in Tampa. Our entire receiving core has been decimated with injuries and suspension. Rob might be so in awe of retirement that he might be missing our message. Gronkowski might not hear the call for help. The “Krewe ” has to get the word to him. We must get him to return to the field and help his good friend Tom Brady, the city of Tampa, and every Bucs fan across the country. Gronk is like Major Tom, he is everything now.
