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).

If this was Ben Roethlisbeger dancing he would be accused of raping that girl with the glow sticks.

Let it die tards. I would be disappointed if they sat in their room and moped like pussies. This is normal behavior. Gronk has established himself as my favorite player this year even though he plays for the team I hate the most. I think it is great that he could care less what these media tools write about him.

Shirtless Light, Gronk dance at Pats SB party?

Just getting to the SuperBowl is a good reason to party.  During the game the players give it their all...One teams wins and one team loses.   No reason to go back to your room and pout...celebrate a great season.

They didnt win the Superbowl but have every reason to celebrate - good for them and who is going to complain about seeing Rob Gronkowski with out his shirt on??  Seriously, he's dancing and blowing off some steam - he's not the U.S. Ambassitor to the United Nations....he's plays football and gets paid a ton to do it - wouldnt you be dancing with your shirt off? I would :)

That must be Gronk in the background.  Who is the smaller guy in front?  Is it a teammate or some guy who spends 3 hrs a day doing crunches.

Millionaire ballplayers having fun and not caring about losing. Maybe they should mope around for a week? All and all, who cares? Is this really newsworthy? At least they're not raping, shooting and driving drunk.
