I’m not exactly one would call a Patriots fan. Do I hate them? Not really. Do I like them? Depends on the situation. Do I respect them? I’ll just say that I give credit where and when credit is due.
So when camera phone footage of tight end Rob Gronkowski partying mere hours after the Pats lost Super Bowl XLVI was splattered all over the internet, ESPN and the like, my first thought was “ok, that’s odd”. I didn’t throw a fit or get steamed about the amateur video because honestly, I don’t care. Neither should America.
Sure, it was pretty surprising to see Gronk on a dance floor just going to town, probably under the influence of some intoxicating liquids. Even more surprising because he has a bum ankle that limited his play in the Big Game, probably the main reason for the Patriots’ loss.
As such, this game was five days ago and the partying was done the same night. So, why does it keep popping up on SportsCenter, Mike and Mike, The Dan Patrick Show, etc.? Its time to kill this bird with two stones and never let it resonate again.
