Following their Super Bowl XLVI loss to the New York Giants, Rob Gronkowski and Matt Light decided the best way to ease the sting of losing the biggest game of their careers was to take off their shirts and dance onstage with the members of LMFAO at New England’s post-game party (head to Deadspin for more pictures). For some reason I think a huge chunk of Patriots Nation will have a problem with this. And to those people I say—have you not seen the original Footloose? Kevin Bacon’s angry dancing was cleansing to the soul.
All I want to know is, how did Gronk’s ankle hold up during all that gyrating and shuffling?
And while dancing onstage with other shirtless men shuldn’t be condoned, at least Gronk has the physique to pull it off. Matt Light, on the other hand, is built like an offensive lineman, which is perfect when you play that position, as he does, but not so much when you’re busting a move at a post-game party.
I think the only way this doesn’t draw the ire of head coach Bill Belichick is if he was on the turntables during LMFAO’s set, which is a longshot. Then again, it’s probably a longshot that Belichick gets pissed at these guys for partying after losing the Super Bowl. The man is an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, clad in a ragged hoodie.
