Gronkowski addresses post-Super Bowl dancing

Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski received his share of criticism for being caught on camera dancing during the team’s post-Super Bowl party (though, oddly, teammate Matt Light, who was right there with him, did not get nearly as much), and today he addressed it.

, Gronkowski was on a Philadelphia radio station today and said this about his post-loss partying:

“It is what it is. We were just having fun with my brothers and stuff . . . family I haven’t seen in a while . . . and the chance of hanging out with LMFAO was pretty cool too. . . . Unfortunately we didn’t win and that was the number 1 goal.”

Gronkowski, who underwent surgery earlier this month to clean up the ligament damage in his left ankle from a high ankle sprain he suffered in the AFC title game, will “spike the puck” at the Worcester Sharks game tonight.
