Paul Wood, Jr. from Dorchester is headed to London in October for the New England Patriots game vs. the St. Louis Rams after he was "Caught Cold" Monday at the Patriot Place Dunkin' Donuts in Foxborough.
Wood Jr. was greeted by New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was dressed for the part (see photo above), at the Patriot Place Dunkin' Donuts. Gronk presented Wood Jr. with a trip for two to watch the Patriots play in London.
