Anyone hoping to see Rob Gronkowski celebrating his namesake horse’s win at this year’s Kentucky Derby will have to find something else to root for at the track.
Gronkowski the horse will not be running at Churchill Downs on May 5. After a Authentic Mario Hezonja Jersey report on Monday of a setback that could dash plans for a Derby run, the horse’s owners announced that the horse has indeed been scratched. The horse ran a fever over the weekend that required antibiotics and won’t be making the trip to Louisville as a result.
We are beyond disappointed that Gronkowski will miss the Kentucky Derby, Tom Ludt of Phoenix Thoroughbred said. To have a Derby contender with our first group of three-year-olds was a dream come true, and to have had New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski join us on that journey made it even more exciting. But we must put the welfare of the horse first and we will look forward to the colt recovering quickly and to his future races.
The Giants, for now, are not actively trying to deal Flowers, but given his no-show status, they are interested in hearing what he might be worth. Can they get a fifth- or sixth-round pick in this week’s draft for him? Or, could they package Flowers and their own fifth-round pick and get back a fourth-round pick?

The tweets, all of which have since been deleted, were published by Yahoo Sports. Some contain some racially insensitive, and well, just stupid messages. The kind of things dumb high school kids say, if those high school kids grow up without realizing there are certain words they don’t get to say, even if they use the casual version that ends with an -a (though there were a few that include the full N word).
There’s no excuse (other than youthful ignorance) for the tweets themselves, but there are a few other layers of shamefulness involved here.

First, his agents should have plowed through his 9,051 tweets at some point well before the eve of the draft, found the offensive ones, and deleted them before anyone had a chance to embarrass him with his own words.
There’s also something disturbing about anyone going through the tweets of a teenager looking for smear material, as has happened in recent years to athletes and others. But when people go looking for the spotlight of social media, eventually it’s going to shine back on them, and illuminate every fault.
That would be appreciated, he was told.
