  this week I got several messages some friends coming down from New England stating that Rob Gronkowski, tight end for the NFL championship-winning New England Patriots was cited on their flight.

 Rob kicked off his Memorial Day weekend at Universal Orlando Resort by getting his adrenaline pumping on Revenge of the Mummy. Based on the popular “Mummy” films, this “psychological thrill ride” brings riders face-to-face with both physical and psychological fears.
