WATCH: Patriots' Rob Gronkowski makes nice move to score 69th career receiving TD

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is having himself a nice day.

Gronkowski, whose favorite number is 69, entered Sunday with 69 career touchdowns from scrimmage, but one of those touchdowns came as a runner, which means Gronk had a chance to score his 69th career receiving touchdown. He did that against the Saints, using the nicest of moves to reach what is may be his favorite career milestone.

Hopefully, reporters ask him about his 69th career touchdown reception so we can get another interview like this:

Gronk forever.
