Kraft: In our next lives, people might want to be Gronk


Rob Gronkowski is a self-proclaimed "baller" who wants to be taken seriously for how hard he works on and off the football field.

That's fair enough, but to hear Patriots owner Robert Kraft tell it, the tight end leads the life others envy.

"In our next lives, a lot of people might want to be Gronk," Kraft said Wednesday, per the New York Daily News. "He never has a bad day."

Is Robert Kraft telling us he's a reincarnationist?

Gronk is the lynchpin of the Patriots' offense, which will face its stiffest test of the season Super Bowl Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. He's also been known to enjoy a shirtless dance or two at the club

But the fun-loving 25-year-old will make no apologies about having a good time when the opportunity warrants.

"I mean, there's a college kid left in everyone," Gronkowski said. "I bet you, too, if you could go back, you would for a night or two, so why not?"

Why not, indeed.
