Rob Gronkowski doesn’t understand time travel or time machines


New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski joined Scott Zolak of 98.5 The Sports Hub for a routine interview. Well, what we thought would be routine, but anything Gronk is involved in seems to not be routine. Zolak asks Gronk what kind of superpower he would want if he could have one. Gronk, in a stoner like response, said: “Man, like, a time machine.”

Gronk wants a time machine so he can go to… Florida. A domestic flight away. There are a plethora of other super powers that would accomplish this. Running like the flash, flying like Superman, suit like Ironman or transporting.

We did learn that Gronk really likes Florida.

Below is a transcript of their on air conversation, transcribed by Deadspin:

Zolak: If you could have a superpower, what would that one superpower be?

Gronk: Man, like, a time machine.

Zolak: You could be invisible…

Gronk: Does time machine count?

Zolak: Yeah, let’s do it. We could build a time machine right here.

Gronk: Like, if I could just be like, “I want to be in Florida right now,” and then boom, I’m in Florida.

Zolak: That’d be more like a transporter, like…

Gronk: Yeah, is that a superpower?
