The Super Bowl is over and that can mean only one thing: somewhere, a shirtless Rob Gronkowski is dancing.
It’s a Super Bowl tradition unlike any other. The scene this year was a Las Vegas nightclub, where the new England Patriots’ tight end moved and grooved, then made a WWE move on another guy that resulted in Gronk falling on his left arm, the one that he broke twice during the season. He quickly hopped back up, none the worse for wear, in the video on TMZ.com.
Gronkowski twice had surgery on the arm, for separate breaks, last season. He first broke his forearm Nov. 18 and underwent surgery. Although he returned to play Dec. 30, he broke the arm again, in a different spot, in the Patriots’ playoff win against Houston. His arm, he told the Boston Globe’s Shalisa Manza Young last week, is healing just fine.
“[The Patriots’ offseason training program] doesn’t start for a couple more months, so obviously I plan on being healthy within the same time frame as last time. Just got to rehab, get my muscle strength back up, let the bone heal, and obviously my goal is to be 100 percent before the season, which I think it’s pretty fair to say that I will be.”
