Even though some Buffalo Bills fans still hold a grudge towards Rob Gronkowski for the many times he and Tom Brady handed it to the Bills during the New England Patriots “dynasty” era, there’s still a part of us that admires the guy.

Love him or hate him, Gronk is a proud Buffalo boy from Williamsville, and the retired (well, twice-retired) tight-end frequently spends time here in Western New York to visit his family. He’s also open about the fact he was a big Bills fan growing up, and often throws in the anecdote that they’re his “hometown team” when the Bills are brought up during his appearances as a FOX NFL analyst.

The Buffalo native  is back on our radar for his upcoming reattempt at the FanDuel “Kick Of Destiny” during the Super Bowl. 

His first try at the “Kick Of Destiny” last year didn’t go so well, as the FanDuel ad that aired during Super Bowl LVII revealed his 25-yard field goal attempt went wide left (hey, at least it wasn’t wide right).

This year, Gronk is going to attempt the FG in front of a live crowd in Las Vegas.

No matter where your favorite place to get Buffalo’s famous wings is, there’s one universal fact Gronk pointed out about Buffalo that rings absolutely true. 

Everyone has great blue cheese in Buffalo. Outside of Buffalo, blue cheese is awful.
