The Seattle Seahawks got an emotional and big time win over the New England Patriots Sunday night in Boston.

And while the game was exciting, the news that came out the next day may have superseded the game itself. It turns out that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski played most of the second half with an injured lung after a hit from Earl Thomas.

Which makes even less sense when you realize that he was an integral part of the game during the fourth quarter. It was Gronk who caught the Brady pass that set up the first and goal, and was involved in the last pass play to the corner that fell incomplete.
Punctured lung is “glass half empty” description.
Chest injury with small air leak is “glass half full”
Medical term is pneumothorax.

Regardless of the outcome, is their much doubt left about how crazy Gronk is?
