Rob Gronkowski always has a smile on his face. The guy looks as though he genuinely enjoys every day of his life, whether he’s wrestling in his backyard or getting his face melted off by the Florida heat.

Gronkowski even has a good time reading mean tweets about himself.

Gronkowski is positive as hell. In fact, he’s so positive all the time that Buccaneers teammates have a nickname for the future Hall of Famer.

Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich shared the nickname during a press conference today.

“Gronkitis” is sure to cure the blues. Unless the Bucs lose to the Redskins. Ain’t no curing that heartbreak.

Gronk provided a few chuckles of his own today, discussing his favorite off-field moment with quarterback Tom Brady.

Now that’s funny. Not as funny as Brady’s impression of Gronk but pretty funny.
