'Gronk' explains dance decision

New England Patriots tight end spoke for the first time about his post-Super Bowl shirtless dance that was caught on camera in the wake of losing to the New York Giants.

Gronkowski told WPEN in Philadelphia that he was just having fun and spending time with family and friends in the aftermath of the game.

"I always put my job first, before anything, no matter what it is. I'm always dedicating myself," Gronkowksi said. “Unfortunately, I mean, it just happened like that. It just is what it is. I had a lot of fun with my family, and that was the first time I got to see them in awhile. We were just having fun with my brothers, friends I hadn't seen in a while. The chance of hanging out with LMFAO, that was pretty cool too. Unfortunately we didn’t win and that was the No. 1 goal.”

Gronkowski is still in a cast and on crutches following surgery for a high ankle sprain a few days after the Super Bowl.
