Could Rob Gronkowski rub it in a little more?
In the morning, Gronk's "big announcement" was that he'll be going to the Super Bowl - not with the Patriots, but as the host of "Gronk Beach" in Miami, the site of SB54. Thus ends the comeback, at least for this season.
He later joked that Pats were just "missing some 6-6, 260 [pounds] guy...They're missing that guy for sure."
To top it all off, at night, Gronk donned Lakers purple and gold and was part of a halftime dance show with the Laker Girls at the Staples Center in Los Angeles where New England's least favorite NBA team was taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Gronk showed off his moves with talk show host James Corden and tennis great Serena Williams.
