Bob At The Super Bowl … With Tony Gonzalez

From Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Tony Gonzalez hoped by leaving the Chiefs and joining the Atlanta Falcons he would be playing on Sunday in Super Bowl XLIV.

Instead, he’s here in south Florida on the same ticket that has taken him to Super Bowls in the past: as a celebrity doing promotional appearances. He visited the Gatorade Performance Lab (above, with Gatorade Sports Science Institute scientist Melissa Tippet) where he took part in physical testing. It was right up his alley of doing everything he can to help his body play another year of pro football.

Everyone can see him go through the testing with former Denver-Baltimore TE Shannon Sharpe on the CBS Super Bowl Pre-Game Show on Sunday.

As always, Gonzalez has been very busy. He’s written a combination cook book-nutrition guide called “The All-Pro Diet.” He and his wife October will welcome their second child next month as River Christian Gonzalez is schedule to arrive on March 15th.

And he says he’s going to play at least one more season and he thinks the 2010 Atlanta Falcons will be the best team he ever played on.

Here’s Tony Gonzalez from the Super Bowl.

    Next year’s Falcons will be the best team he’s ever played on? Yeah, okay…good luck with that Tony. I guess that tells us what he thinks of some of the good Chiefs teams he played on. Apparently, not much.

    I bet the Chiefs can match the Falcons win total next year. How’s that? That’s MY prediction.

    Hey Tony! So the Falcons are a much better team huh?
    I forget…How many playoff games have you won?

    WHAT! Still missed the playoffs? EVEN with a so called better team?

    Face it Tony you’re just bad luck!

    I remember Tony saying the same thing about the Chiefs. Don’t blame the guy for being optimistic. I would still love to have Tony in a Chiefs uniform.

    well I respect what he did but hate how he handled his exit…I understand CP was rough but regardless, he didn’t handle it very well for a guy who will retire a chief.

    nonetheless, thanks for the second round pick as well as the memories during the non playoff win seasons…Lets hope Pioli can turn it into a starter or SOLID player…something we never saw from vermeil or herm consistently.
