The 2016-2017 NFL regular season comes to an end this weekend, but Rob Gronkowski won’t be part of it. The freakishly good tight end for the New England Patriots suffered a back injury a few weeks ago and was placed on Injured Reserve on December 3.
Gronk started this season as the “Cover Athlete” for Madden NFL 17, and some would place his bad luck at the feet of the infamous Madden Curse. But you won’t hear that argument from him. Instead, you’ll get this gloriously ridiculous new video of his daily routine… which includes a pep talk for his rubber ducky, a hearty breakfast of Gronk Flakes (they really exist, by the way), and a little Madden NFL 17. It might not be the Super Bowl, but Gronk’s sense of humor hasn’t skipped a beat.
Maybe he can even give Conan O’Brien a call and play some more Mortal Kombat X after the talk show host’s kids go to bed.
