Rob Gronkowski has spiked, danced and partied his way into fans hearts over the course of the past year. He seems like a guy that just wants to play football, party and have fun, not necessarily in that order. You can add magic tricks to the list of things that Gronk enjoys as in a recent segment of “Mat Franco’s Got Magic” on NBC will attest to.
In the segment Franco asked Gronk to throw a football towards a cone on the ground about 20 yards away. Gronk did so, and then was asked for his phone which he obligingly gave to Franco who proceeded to wrap it in a towel, throw the towel and make it disappear. Take a look.
The reaction from Gronk is priceless. Just look at this face.
You know what that face says? “What kind of sorcery is this? How is this possible? This can’t be my phone.” Awesome. Long live Gronk and please let’s show this man more magic tricks.
