    He also told ESPN The Magazine that he watches Spongebob while doing pushups.

    On Wednesday, ESPN The Magazine published an interview with Rob Gronkowski that showed a softer, less Hulk-ish side of the New England Patriots tight end.

    They also published a bunch of photos of him with cats. Because when fans think of Gronk they often think of fluffy, lazy, quiet creatures, right?

    In the interview, Gronk told ESPN The Magazine that he likes to "snuggle" and does pushups and situps while watching Spongebob.
