The only memorable quotes this week have come from Rob Gronkowski and Camille Kostek.

1. If you're a blogger/sports writer/content provider, you can always rely on Rob Gronkowski to provide material. What's even better is that Gronk seems to have found the perfect partner, because his girlfriend, SI Swimsuit model Camille Kostek, has that similar trait. 

While sports media organizations are busy interviewing the same 15-20 players who say nothing on radio row this week, Gronk and Camille have given us something important to chew on: Gronk likes to get tickled. And according to Camille, the triceps are the key area.

The key here isn't that the 6-foot-6, 265-pound Rob Gronkowski likes getting tickled. It's that being pro tickling is the hill he's willing to die on.

If anyone else said, "If you say you don't like it, you're crazy," about getting tickled, you'd think THEY were crazy, but Gronk can get away with this quote.

Speaking of quotes, I plan on betting a hefty amount on over 3.5 catches for Gronk in the Super Bowl, so I'd like to make a plea to Camille to make sure Gronk gets his rest this week.

2. This is a stunning piece of footage. It starts out with Bill Belichick being his typical no-personality self, but then something happens and he actually becomes a human being.

3. If you're a new bettor now that it's legal in some states, just remember: You will not win.

4. The Bachelor and former Chargers linebacker Colton Underwood has undergone quite the transformation over the years.

5. The Super Bowl hasn't been played yet, but the conspiracy theories about referee John Parry are already being discussed. My colleague Jonathan Jones has a sensible column about this, so check that out and then read some of the tweets from the crazies out there.

6. This week's SI Media Podcast features an interview with Steve Carell, who went in-depth on a few episodes of The Office, including "Basketball." 

In addition to Carell, Brent Musburger also appears on this week's episode to talk Super Bowl betting, prop bets, the scene in Vegas and much more. You can listen to the podcast below or download it on iTunes.


7. RANDOM YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE DAY: For all of you out there dealing with some rough weather, he's a lifehack in case you don't have a snow shovel.

IN CLOSING: Can Pittsburgh TV station KDKA please re-hire the guy they fired over the "Known Cheater" Tom Brady graphic? It's absurd that they cut the guy loose.
