It should come as no surprise that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski enjoys a good party.

Truth be told, there's no bigger party on the NFL calendar than the opening night of Super Bowl week.

With the Pats back in the contest this year after falling to the Eagles last February, Rob Gronkowski was enjoying every minute of the evening's festivities.

When the 6'6" tight end was not dancing the night away, he weighed in on a wide range of topics, like how he and his teammates are embracing the adversity they've faced.

But things got a little wild when a student at nearby Emory University student invited the hard-partying Gronk over to his frat house, a setting the 29-year-old tight end knows well.

“What are you guys doing tonight? I have curfew or else I would come,” Gronkowski said.

The student responded that they were having a snow day party Tuesday, which caught Gronkowski's attention.

“Snow day party in the day?” he said. “I might be able to make that one.”

On a more serious note, Gronkowski avoided questions regarding the possibility that Sunday's Super Bowl LIII matchup against the Rams could be the tight end's final game before calling it a career.

 

“As of right now, that’s one of the last things I’m thinking about,” Gronkowski said. “I love playing the game…A few weeks down the road, you relax, you get some down time, enjoyment time and you just see where you want to go with it.”

Gronkowski was then asked about his plans for next season.

“That’s a tricky question,” Gronkowski said. “He’s just trying to get some answers over here, baby, but like I said, I don’t know, I haven’t done that sit-down yet. I gotta do that sit-down. About two weeks after.”

We'll find out Sunday if Gronkowski is able to bring his hard-charging personality to the field, where the Patriots will need him to be feeling himself if they expect to win their sixth championship.
