It’s no secret that Rob Gronkowski’s favorite number is 69, and the latest evidence comes via how many tickets the Patriots tight end requested for family members and friends.
Gronk was cleared to play in the big game Thursday following a concussion in the AFC Championship game, and upon that, asked for exactly 69 tickets for loved ones and peers to come watch him play.
Not a joke: Gronk has 69 family members and friends flying to Minnesota for the Super Bowl. pic.twitter.com/gk0YUj4eOy
