Get You A Man Who Looks At You The Way Gronk Looks At This Minigun
"Rob Gronkowski." Go ahead. Say it to your girlfriend. Even I, a congenital Patriots-hater, must grudgingly admit that Gronk, the hard-headed, able-bodied tight end, is a tough sumbitch on the field — and a favorite with the ladies.
But wait. There's more. Say hello to Gronk's little friend:
Why yes, that is Bill Belichick's prime non-Ugg-wearing investment, wielding — dare we say loving? — a rotary cannon, probably the 7.62mm NATO M134 Minigun of Predator fame, hot brass clanging between his legs as he spews hot death from all 22 inches of his barrel.
That'll do, Gronk. That'll do.Internet Movie Firearms Database
The occasion — as if he needed one — was Gronk's preparation for a role in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Boss Level, a pet project of writer/director Joe Carnahan, who bravely captured the footage above of New England's favorite large son raining rounds on some poor unsuspecting indoor range target.
No defensive secondaries were injured in the making of this film, but Gronk might want to consider lending the Pats' corners a minigun like that the next time they have to face the Eagles.

Navy senior leaders could decide whether or not to approve the new I-Boot 5 early in 2020, said Rob Carroll, director of the uniform matters office at the Chief of Naval Personnel's office.
"The I-Boot 5 is currently wrapping up its actual wear test, its evaluation," Carroll told Task & Purpose on Monday. "We're hoping that within the first quarter of calendar year 2020 that we'll be able to present leadership with the information that they need to make an informed decision."
Oklahoma Congresspeople slam private housing contractor at Tinker Air Force Base for negligence, fraud
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe and U.S. Rep. Kendra Horn leveled harsh criticism last week at the contractor accused of negligence and fraudulent activity while operating private housing at Tinker Air Force Base and other military installations.
Inhofe, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, referred to Balfour Beatty Communities as "notorious." Horn, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, told a company executive she was "incredibly disappointed you have failed to live up to your responsibility for taking care of the people that are living in these houses."
