PHUKET: Fans of the New England Patriots in Phuket got some great news when local media reports out of Boston revealed that the team's superstar tight end Rob Gronkowsi will play in the Super Bowl XLVI against the red hot New York Giants.

Gronkowski went down with what appeared to be a very serious ankle in the AFC championship game, won by the Patriots at home over the Baltimore Ravens thanks to a botched field goal attempt from just 32 yards out in the final seconds that would have sent the game into overtime.

Gronkowski, the 6' 6" 265-pound second-year man out of Arizona, set a tight end record of 18 touchdowns in the regular season.
