Pete Carroll, Rob Gronkowski can at least make us feel better about Week 7 Sunday

Sunday was an ugly one for San Francisco 49ers fans. The team was beaten handily by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and there is no sign things are going to improve anytime soon.

That being said, there were reasons to laugh on Sunday. Two in particular from Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

This first Vine video comes from Sunday Night Football. The Seahawks and Cardinals managed to finish in a 6-6 tie, with both teams seeing their kickers miss chip shot field goals in overtime. Pete Carroll’s Seahawks had a 28-yard attempt with 11 seconds left in the extra frame. Carroll appears unsure what’s happening with it, and his look after it missed is fantastic. It’s not quite Richard Sherman on the incomplete pass in the Super Bowl, but it’s still pretty great.

This second video features New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski behaving in a manner that is so quintessentially Gronk. Words cannot do it justice, particularly his snickering at the joke. It’s so ridiculously childish, and yet I laugh every time I hear him snicker.
