New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is the NFL’s biggest little kid. He’s absolutely unstoppable on the field, but when he’s not playing football he’s got no problem letting you know that he’s just your average, dopey, fun-loving guy.
So when asked about tying Patriots great Stanley Morgan’s franchise record for touchdowns on Sunday with his 68th trip to the end zone, it should surprise nobody that Gronkowski gave the Gronk-iest answer in the history of Gronks.
Gronk on his franchise record-tying 68th touchdown: "One more and I got 69 touchdowns, if you know what I mean." Seriously.

From the doofy appearance on Celebrity Family Feud, to the posts on social media with porn stars, to video of him absolutely wasted after postseason exits, to Booze Cruises in his name, that’s the seminal Gronkowski moment. And oddly enough it’s incredibly endearing.
If anybody else said something like that, almost everybody would react with some level of disgust but when Gronk does it, it’s just silly and ultimately harmless. And many people love him for it.
