The Legend of Gronk

By the time you’re reading this, every member of the Patriots is probably laying on a beach somewhere enjoying the fruits of the offseason. They’ve already won the Super Bowl and hosted a celebratory duck boat parade through the streets of Boston, appropriately riding off into the sunset, errr…snowstorm, with a big shiny ring.
But before we let the memories of SB LI slip into the back of our minds, let’s take a minute to recognize a true moment of glory. No, I am not talking about Edelman’s catch, the game-winning TD, or Brady shaking hands with Goodell. I’m talking about Gronk being the absolute most Gronk during the parade, exclaiming that he “wasn’t planning on partying, but did it for the fans.”
Aside from the unbelievable notion that Gronk wouldn’t be partying at the parade, this is hilarious because he is so earnest in his reasoning. As Boston mag reports, it went like this:
“To tell you the truth, I wasn’t even planning on partying,” he says, explaining his moment of clarity to reporters today. “But the fans were asking for it, and I’m giving the fans what they wanted to get. So I partied for the fans. That’s how we do it. That’s how we roll.”

So Gronk gave us what we all not-so-secretly wanted: dancing shirtless, catching beers from fans and opening them with his teeth. A true man for the people.
