He may not have played in the Super Bowl, but Rob Gronkowski is a true champion.

The New England Patriots tight end was the MVP of the Super Bowl parade on Tuesday, chugging beers, taking his shirt off, flexing his massive muscles, partying with his teammates, and booing the hell out of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

It was peak "Gronk."

 

Gronkowski was originally planning to take it easy—at least by Gronk standards—at the parade, but the passion of New England’s fans pulled him into the fold: "I partied for them, I chugged beers for them. I had to,” Gronkowski told the Boston Globe. “It's just unbelievable. I love them so much."
