New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is always full of surprises and if you were to assume he would do something hysterical before the Super Bowl, he would be right.
According to gronknation.com, the All-Pro tight end reportedly invited 69 friends and family members to Super Bowl LII.

Obviously the number has special meaning for him as he has had humorous reactions as well as mentioned it in comments when it comes up for him on the stat sheet.
Even during his appearance on the show Drop The Mic, Gronkowski stated in one of his verses “I will retire after Super Bowl 69. Nice!”
Gronkowski and the Patriots play the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
