Patriots tight end/wild man Rob Gronkowski has had the best season ever for a tight end, he’s been linked to a well-known actress porn star and he’s only 23 years old.

But today Rob Gronkowski has finally made it.  The Buffalo, New York native often indulged on cereal named after the then Buffalo Bills quarterback Doug Flutie.  He went so far as to call Flutie Flakes “unbelievable.”  Now, I have enjoyed my fair share of cereal through the years and while I thoroughly enjoy a good bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, that cereal is completely believable.

Today, Flutie Flakes turned into Gronk Flakes.  Gronk attended the opening ceremony at a suburban Boston grocery store.  The cereal will be available at select stores in New England and online.  When asked for a solution on the replacement referees that have infected the NFL, Gronkowski offered a simple solution.  “They need to eat Gronk Flakes,” he said. “Give them a box.”

Part of the proceeds (or bro-ceeds) of Gronk Flakes will go toward the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation.  Here’s the cover boy’s showing today at the opening ceremony:
