Just seen the Super Bowl and...

...congrats to the Philly Eagles. Great game

However - doesn't anyone else think Gronkowski looks like Minnissota Ryan (aka Nathan Fillion in Saving Private Ryan - I did NOT know that was Nathan Fillion!)

I didn't know his name was 'Minnissota'. Like the state?  :o    Those guys on the Serenity would have given him hell if they heard that.

I don't think he was called Minnesota in the movie - though he's listed in IMDB as that. He would defo have said he was from Minnesota - but I'm sure he'd have given his first name and initial.

He says "James Fredrick Ryan, Minnesota" in the film

Like JD said, it was a reference to where he was from, because he was the wrong James Ryan.
