BOSTON (CBS) – After losing Super Bowl XLVI to the Giants on Sunday night, some of the New England Patriots went out to blow off some steam in Indianapolis.
In video obtained exclusively by 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich released Tuesday, tight end Rob Gronkowski and left tackle Matt Light were shown dancing on stage during a performance by the group LMFAO at the Patriots post-Super Bowl party.
In one clip, Light dances with his shirt off.
In other, Gronkowski is seen moving pretty well around the stage, despite his high ankle sprain.
Some people are questioning the timing of his dancing. After a loss of such magnitude, many believe you should hang your head, be humbled, and perhaps stay quiet, especially after the biggest game in sports.
Most of Patriots nation we spoke to believed the players earned their fun, win or lose.
“You have the 50 and 60-year-olds that say no. Give them a break, it’s a long season, they earned the right to cut loose, I see no problem with it at all,” said Sports Hub’s Jon Wallach. “They earned the bender that they got on Sunday.”

Glenn Gronkowski, the tight end’s younger brother who will play football at Kansas State this year, tweeted during the performance, “Legit party rocking with @lmfao right now ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!”
Gordie Gronkowski also tweeted, “Unbelievable night on stage w @LMFAO. Anytime all the bros are together its a great time! @Chrisgronkowski @DGronko @ggronko @RobGronkowski”
What do you think about this? Should they have been celebrating after a crushing defeat?
