The New England Patriots’ former star tight end Rob Gronkowski might have announced his retirement earlier this offseason, but that doesn’t mean that his goofy antics have stopped.
At a pre-game celebration at the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park, Gronkowski added another weird moment to his list of antics.
The Lombardi Trophy is awarded to the winner of the NFL’s Super Bowl every year and is the most coveted piece of hardware in the league.
So, leave it to Rob Gronkowski to use it as a baseball bat and to put a dent into the Patriots’ coveted piece of hardware that they were awarded after winning Super Bowl LIII.
Despite his mischievous nature, no one could be too upset with Gronkowski. The legendary player retired this off-season after helping New England win three Super Bowls during his decade-long tenure with the team.
The Patriots have announced that, for now, they plan to leave the dent in the trophy. It’s a unique story that tells the story of the team and of their enigmatic tight end.
It might be fixed in the future, but for now, the Lombardi Trophy is going to remain perfectly damaged.
