FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- This is the time on the NFL calendar when things begin to slow down, but for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski they are just heating up.

Gronkowski is hosting "Crashletes" on Nickelodeon, a show which debuts Tuesday, July 5 at 7 p.m. ET and celebrates the most epic sports fails from around the world.

Here is a sneak preview of Gronkowski's work as a host.

Gronkowski will welcome various guests to the show, including his former teammate in New England, running back Stevan Ridley. As one would expect, his family will also play a significant role.

Gronkowski told the Associated Press, "I'm such a big kid at heart and I'm eager to show my energy and passion off the field ... There will be a lot of laughs as we celebrate the most epic, sickest sports fails on the planet. Be prepared to get Gronk'd!"
