White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is a native of Rhode Island and a diehard fan of the New England Patriots. The Patriots just so happened to be in town on Wednesday to celebrate their Super Bowl championship, and TE Rob Gronkowski was kind enough to take it upon himself to try to assist Spicer with the day's daily press briefing. Gronkowski popped into the briefing room for a few seconds and asked Spicer if he needed any help with things.
And here's another angle, with a shot of Gronkowski:

Spicer was visibly delighted to see Gronkowski, and broke out in a big smile and told him that he'd see him in a few minutes. He then said "that was cool," as the members of the press laughed.
Pretty cool, indeed.
