If you asked people you know to draw up a list of their favourite players, based on whatever factor you wanted, there is no doubt that a majority of them would contain Rob Gronkowski.

The Patriots tight end is a damn good player and also boasts an infectious personality that seems people generally warm to him. 

Gronk showed exactly why that is earlier this week, when he got very excited about the prospect of scoring his 69th touchdown. And, yes, it is for the exact reason you're thinking.

Gronkowski went off for 93 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots’ win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. That touchdown reception was the 68th of the big guy's career, which means that he’s one score away from 69. Gronk knows that and he reacted in the most Gronk way possible.

Rob Gronkowski, a grown man getting paid millions of dollars to play the game of football, still laughs at the number 69. He literally made himself giggle just by saying 69.

Never change Gronk, never change.
