Robert Kraft: ‘We can always pray and hope’ Rob Gronkowski comes back

It must have been somewhat bittersweet for fans of the New England Patriots who tuned into the pregame show before last night’s game against the New York Giants. On the one hand, there was a familiar face making his debut as a television analyst, and it was beloved fan favorite Rob Gronkowski.

On the other hand, Gronkowski was in a suit with a microphone on his hand, appearing on the screen well before kickoff… as opposed to appearing on the screen during the 60 minutes of the game itself, dressed in a full Patriots uniform, and with a football in his hand instead (preferably about to be spiked in the end zone, while we’re at it).
