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).

I'd rather have the guys who hold onto that defeat as fuel to fire next years desire on my team.  If you can shake off a Super Bowl loss that easily- hours after the fact- there's no way that loss inspires you next year.

Please.  The NFL is just something Gronkowski likes to do between partying, taking his shirt off, and screwing groupies.  If he doesn't have a jersey on, he's likely shirtless.  I wouldn't be surprised to hear about a half-dozen paternity suits in the next year....

This is certainly a waste of web space. What did you expect the Patriots players to do, go home and pray for next year? Rob Gronkowski has probably been in severe pain for two weeks...what would you do? Same for Matt Light...he's an offensive lineman who has been beat up on all year...he's blowing off steam. How about cutting these guys some slack. They aren't choir boys like the NY Giants.

I'm disappointed CBS would even print this story.  Did you expect them to watch film at 1am or go to early mass?  The season is over.  They can break dance until sunrise and then head to IHOP for all I care.  I know pitchers and catchers still have a little time to report but please stop trying to stir over the pot over two professional football players at a club.

Who cares?

They just lost the biggest game of their lives and they are taking out their frustration on the dance floor.
Doesnt mean they tried anyless 6 hours prior.

Everyone grieves differently.

Who freaking cares? 

People usually have one of two immediate reactions to failure:

1) They go home, cry, and feel sorry for themselves.
2) They go out, party, and try to forget.

Come September, I'd rather have the people who avoided self-loathing on my team.

I agree with Moose 100%.  I think respect for the game has been gone since the beginning of 2000 sports.  Basketball has been the worst.  Football is a close second!

Let me break the bad news to everyone who thinks professional sports means anything...it doesn't. Professional athletes are a bunch of dudes who get paid millions of dollars to...play a game. That's it...nothing more. It's not a religion; it's not a life or death matter...they catch a ball; or shoot a ball; or score a goal...it's really simple when you think about it. So the simple fact "Gronk" and "Lights" were dancing hours after they lost a game shocks ANYONE it is sad...so very sad.
