The Gronkowski Brothers, a five-member football and baseball playing clan, have reportedly pitched an animated show based on their lives.

Led by New England Patriots' tight end Rob Gronkowski, the other four siblings are Dan Gronkowski, a former tight end with the Cleveland Browns, Chris Gronkowski, a former fullback with the Denver Broncos, and the youngest brother Glenn Gronkowski, who currently attends and plays football for Kansas State University.

Rounding out the clan is the oldest brother, Gordie Gronkowski Jr., a former baseball player who won three championship rings, and their father Gordie Gronkowski Sr., a professional cyclist who represented the United States at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Titled "The Gronks," the show's promo video was first obtained by Deadspin.com, which reported that veteran TV writer and producer Ricky Blitt had expressed interest in the project.

Blitt is a co-executive producer of the hit Fox animated series "Family Guy," Dead Spin noted.

In the promo video, Gordie Gronkowski Sr., or "Papa Gronk" as he is referred to, introduces his son's telling the viewer, "who cares if you're in second place, you never hear about a second place thing, that's their philosophy in life is why do it if I can't be number one."

Papa Gronk describes his sons as follows.

Rob Gronkowski: "Rob was my tough one. He just has a stellar career going for him."

Dan Gronkowski: "Dan is down-to-earth. He's the one who keeps 'em all in line."

Chris Gronkowski: "Chris, he's a genius, he definitely is the genius, he's a little more meaner too."

Glenn Gronkowski: "If goose played any single sport he'd be in the top three in any sport."

Gordie Gronkowski Jr.: "Gordie's my first one, he ended up playing pro baseball. . . here championship rings he's got."

In the promo video, we see the five boys pelting passing cars with snow balls, banging each other's heads into glass windows, and shot-gunning beer cans, or punching a hole in the side of beer cans putting it back in a single swig.

It was not reported whether any interest was shown by a network in actually picking up the proposed animated series.
