To say Robert James Gronkowski is enjoying his offseason as a champion would be a massive understatement for the New England Patriots' tight end.
Gronkowski has taken his time off to enjoy WrestleMania, cut a promo with WWE NXT's Mojo Rawley hyping up their "tag team," hit a bachelor party in Las Vegas and is currently at the White House enjoying the Patriots' celebratory visit.
Gronk is everywhere, seemingly all at once, and never seems to miss a beat. The charismatic and unpredictable personalty that he is, Gronkowski made sure his day at the White House was nothing short of memorable. How he did it was absolutely brilliant.

Let's forget politics and everything that comes with it, but for a moment.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was giving another one of his routine daily briefings, letting a room filled with media know the latest from the Trump administration. How do you turn an ordinary presser into something extraordinary? You put a dash of Gronkowski in it, of course.

Spicer, mid-presser, was interrupted by none other than Gronkowski himself and it was broadcasted to the entire world. A door slides off stage, the camera shifts over to it, and out pops Gronk in all of his glory.
"You need some help," Gronkowski asks, which sends the gathered media into a storm of laughter.
Spicer turns down the offer from Gronk, who would have undoubtedly gone straight up to the podium to give his own press briefing is his offer was accepted. Perhaps Spicer fumbled what would have been a golden comedy opportunity for the sports world.
"You sure," asks Gronkowski over the laughter.
Spicer again turns him down, noting he'll see him in a minute, and away Gronk goes behind the sliding door. If only.
Gronkowski is one of several Patriots who are in attendance at the White House to celebrate their stunning Super Bowl LI victory over the Atlanta Falcons. It was an absolutely insane comeback that fans won't be soon forgotten.
United States President Donald Trump called their comeback legendary while addressing them.
"It was the first overtime game in Super Bowl history and it ended in a legendary victory for this proud franchise and these absolutely terrific players and coaches," President Trump said.
If President Trump ever needs someone to fill in for Spicer, it sounds like Gronkowski is up for the challenge. Add this to the list of things only Gronk can get away with.
