Watch Gronk grab a birthday cake out of mid-air

We know Gronk can spike just about anything – footballs, hockey pucks, watermelons – but apparently, he is capable of catching all sorts of stuff too.

Gronk joined Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. at ESPN on Thursday, where their skills were tested in a round of "Can You Catch This?"

Even though Odell was later declared the winner of the "Madden NFL 16" cover vote, Gronk stole the show when it came to catching weird things. He managed to grab a smoothie, meatball sub and even a whole birthday cake tossed to him by Odell.

The two also revealed some fun facts to ESPN's reporters. What did we learn about birthday boy Rob Gronkowski? His favorite ice cream is cookies and cream, his rom-com pick is "50 First Dates" and his first AIM screenname was apparently ChickMagnet4Lyfe. (We call your bluff, Gronk.)
