Rob Gronkowski had to answer some tough questions about DeflateGate on Wednesday. Then he got to the fun stuff.
The New England Patriots tight end joined New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” for the “Madden NFL 16” cover revealing. Gronk lost out to Beckham, but not before he was grilled about his take on Tom Brady’s recent suspension.
After that, though, the fun-loving tight end — who is celebrating his 26th birthday Thursday — sat down with Beckham for a lighthearted Q&A, and his response to the first question was the best.
ESPN: What was your first AIM screen name?
Gronk: ChickMagnet4Lyfe. (We cannot confirm spelling.)
Of course it was.
We can only imagine the away messages Gronk put up back in the day, but the birthday boy didn’t stop there. Check out a few other highlights from the interview below.
ESPN: If you could have a dinner party and invite any three famous people (living or deceased), who would you invite?
Gronk: Pamela Anderson, Drake and Jay Z.
ESPN: What is your spirit animal?
Gronk: A dinosaur.
ESPN: Who is your style icon?
ESPN: If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
Gronk: Insanity. I also do the Insanity workouts.
Please don’t ever change, Rob.
