Dr. Gronk? Rob Gronkowski plays life-sized version of ‘Operation’ (pics)


Rob Gronkowski was among the New England Patriots players who, for some reason, attended an employee picnic at Boston’s Mass General Hospital. Not surprisingly, the event featured some hospital-inspired activities and games — no word on if Gronk got caught “Playing Doctor” with some young nurse — and one of those was a life-sized version of the classic game, “Operation.”

The Patriots’ Twitter account posted video of both Chris Jones and Gronkowski trying their respective hands at the over-sized childhood game. Here is Gronk giving it his best effort:

Dr. Rob Gronkowski? Now that’s a frightening thought. Or an exquisitely epic one.

It must be nice for the Patriots to have someone some gregarious and fun-loving as Gronkowski on the team. He seems to have the ability at every turn to provide some much-needed levity to the goings-on with the organization. And with Tom Brady currently embroiled in the serious business of the appeal of his four-game suspension, being able to watch the free-spirited Gronk play “Operation” surely is a tonic for what ails the Patriots and their fans.
