680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – If you’re a sports fan, then you’ve wanted to be a professional athlete. 

How many of us have said how they’d live their lives, if they had the chance to suit up for the Braves? Would we go to all the cool parties? Yes! Would we date the amazing supermodels? Yes! Would we have a bunch of celebrity friends? Yes! 

Ladies and Gentlemen – I present you Rob Gronkowski. “Gronk” is the athlete that guys say that they would be. He answers ‘Yes!’ to all the questions just asked. He’s been doing that for years.  

Sure, none of us are 6 foot 6, 265 pounds and can move with relative ease. But, we could in our dream life right? 

Watching “Gronk” in his postgame celebration should give us all life. Because, he’s living his best life for us fans. Dude probably hasn’t taken a sober breath since the clock struck 0:00 in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl win on Sunday. Yet, most of us say we’d be doing the same thing, if we were 31 years old and just won our fourth career Super Bowl. Seeing him in Leonard Fournette’s Instagram story and the footage from the boat parade in Tampa told us that he’s not lacking any moment of fun. 

Next, we’d be hopping on a private jet with Camille Kostek and heading to some tropical locale for some much needed rest and relaxation. He might want to sleep off the five day bender that’s likely been going since the Super Bowl win. But, if that’s the most of his worries? I’d say “Gronk” has it pretty good. 

Keep doing you “Gronk.” Do it for the dudes who are living your life in their mind.
