Rob Gronkowski loves the number 69.
He can barely contain himself whenever it’s mentioned, even going as far as to wear a No. 69 jersey during the Patriots’ most recent Super Bowl parade. With that history in mind, it’s no surprise that Gronk is very excited about scoring his 69th career touchdown.
Like any frat bro worth his salt, Gronk is obsessed with 69. He once taped the number on the back of his practice jersey and told TMZ he likes to do 69 push-ups. The joke may get old, but Gronkowski torturing opposing defenders is a sight that Patriots fans will never get tired of seeing. His two catches in the third quarter Sunday, including his 36-yard touchdown reception, broke the game wide open.
