You deserve to be picky with your Internet-ing. There is so much to see, and depending on your employment status and how lonely you are, only a certain number of hours to see it all in.

Well, let us tell you right now that these photos you are about to see should be at the top of your "must click" list, if not at the very top of the "must click" list.

It involves a hunky football player and a cute little animal. It does not involve a shirt. Yeah, you know where this is going…

Aren't you glad you are staring at this photo right now? That's New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski posing for ESPN Magazine, shirtless, wearing a crazy hat and hanging out with a kitten. You don't even have to like football (or hats!) for this photo to make you feel things in your heart. There is so much to look at! 

You could stop searching the Internet for pictures because here is everything that's great about the World Wide Web right in front of you! An attractive person. Abs. An adorable animal. And a very weird fashion accessory. You're welcome, Internet explorer!

What's that? You want another photo of Gronkowski with a kitten? Your wish is our command:

Bam! Bicep porn.

If you want to know more about the man behind the bulging muscles, you can read his interview on ESPN's website. All you really need to know from Rob's interview, however, is that he likes to work on his dance moves:

"My dance moves are always working no matter where I am. Whether at the house or if I'm out, at the facility working out, practicing, you gotta get the dance moves right. They help out with your footwork."

Or you can just read this money quote:

"My softer side? I mean, I like to snuggle."

A snuggling, shirtless tight end. That's his Patriots position. We're not just blatantly calling out his nice butt. Also, he has a nice butt.
