Oh, that madcap Gronk.

Accompanying some of his New England Patriots teammates to the White House to visit our completely overwhelmed administration, there was much potential for humor and general weirdness.

Since Rob Gronkowski -- that tight end and noted dance party boat enthusiast -- was going to be in attendance, many were optimistic that something silly would take place.

For only $14.17, you too can wonder who's playing peek-a-boo with whom and why that kept the Pats' slinger from a ceremonial visit.

That's all down to you. We're just here to serve.
