Rob Gronkowski is still recovering from a back injury, but that is hardly stopping the New England Patriots tight end from making an impact on the social scene.

That was especially apparent prior to Sunday’s Daytona 500, when the Super Bowl-winning tight end served as a Fox reporter, and asked a question to a Monster Energy girl, Ashley:

“Hey Ashley, what’s your favorite speed limit out there? I hope it’s somewhere around 70 or something.”

If you couldn’t tell, Gronk was looking for the answer “69”, his favorite number. He even missed a free throw on purpose once in a basketball game so that his team could have 69 points.

Ashley apparently wasn’t aware of Gronk’s obsession with the number, and Fox is surely happy about that.
