Father’s Day is synonymous with sports. And this Sunday, athletes took to social media to wish dads all the best.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski’s dad has become something of a legend, with all of his large sons — but Gronk made sure to remind him who’s No. 1.
Happy Father’s Day to Papa Gronk from your #1 son!! Thanks for showing us the way, everything from the motivation & techniques to become better athletes as kids, to building your fitness business from the ground up, and the importance of living and enjoying life every day 🙌 pic.twitter.com/JgE9vOn5vJ
