Rob Gronkowski has an unlikely passion for getting tickled
The week leading up to the Super Bowl can sometimes feel quite long. There’s a lot of media that normally wouldn’t get the chance to speak with NFL players, and there are a lot of opportunities for those media members to speak to the players. That can lead to some pretty bizarre revelations.
The most bizarre of Super Bowl LIII may end up being Rob Gronkowski’s lifelong love of being tickled.
The New England Patriots’ tight end made quite clear that he really enjoys being tickled on Wednesday and has ever since he was young.
Gronk says his favorite thing in life is getting tickled! Really, he was adamant. Rob Gronkowski absolutely lives getting tickled. Not tickling, getting tickled !!

Gronk: “I just like being tickled. Ever since the 2nd grade. ….It’s the best.” #SBLIII

It’s probably time to play the game now.
Hey, more power to Gronk. In fact, when you consider his rather juvenile sense of humor, maybe we all should have seen this coming.
