Gronk and Light break it down at the Pats Super Bowl party. (Deadspin.com)
By Will Brinson

On Sunday night about 1:30 a.m. ET, the EoF crew walked past Victory Field in Indianapolis, headed home from Lucas Oil Stadium. It was straight bumping. This morning we asked a member of the Indy Super Bowl Host Committee what was going on there and were informed it was the Patriots Super Bowl party.

With those dots connected, it's a little more awkward to see the report on Deadspin.com that Rob Gronkowski and Matt Light were dancing shirtless on the stage with LMFAO. Well, Gronk wasn't shirtless in the DJ Pauley D-style fist-pumping going on above. But he did get shirtless later. (Reportedly?)

Yo Soy Fiesta indeed. (Deadspin.com)

This is the definition of "Yo Soy Fiesta" and it also reportedly occurred during the LMFAO set. (We were told the same thing Deadspin was -- that Earth, Wind and Fire played along with Steven Tyler, the aforementioned LMFAO and Pauley D, and Maroon 5.) It's also exactly the way we'd expect Gronk to celebrate.

We're not so sure that this is the kind of thing the Patriots should take flak for though. Is it somewhat insulting to the idea of how players should take a loss at this level to see two of them shirtless dancing on the stage just hours after a huge loss at the highest level? Perhaps.

But if you think that dancing like this means that Gronkowski and Light don't care about the loss to the Giants, well, you're just wrong. They're professional football players. Light's a three-time Super Bowl champion. Gronkowski played in the Super Bowl two weeks after a high-ankle sprain.

They might not be acting like Wes Welker was late on Sunday night, but it's also not illegal to dance at a Super Bowl party. Getting your picture taken isn't a smart idea, but it's no dumber than having a party at Victory Field after losing the Super Bowl.

And for those who like to watch moving pictures, here are two videos (though Gronk is shirtless in exactly zero of them).

Yeah a criminal like Suh I guess.  Although Ben gets "accused" only, while Suh steps on a guys face on National TV.  Where I work they call that an assault, but hey whatever, just go on tv and apologize for it, all is forgiven.

Why is he dancing with a bunch of guys? Kinda weird behavior. Maybe he likes male companionship...

I take full responsibility.

I saw Light and Gronk after the game.  And I told them that BB was so PO'd at the wide receiver play that he cut Lousy Stinko.

They immediately went into a celebratory mood!  They thought that Lousy Stinko was out and they were so happy they partied all night!

Just so the writer of this article is aware: That's MONDAY morning at 1:30AM, not Sunday night.
I was actually thinking this happened BEFORE the Super Bowl.

Wow. Why didn't they throw to him ? He looks fine for playing. But hey he's a kid. Not many there moving around like he is. He is the most rambunctious there. Let the kid let it all hang out. He hasn't partied for awhile. At least that I know of. Didn't Kenny Stabler party all night before the Super Bowl ? I think he said he plays better with a hang over.
