Official website of the New England Patriots

Are these the Patriots most fabulous fans?


Flamboyant figure skaters Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir are set to be part of the Super Bowl XLIX pre-game show on NBC, but unlike most commentators of the big game, these two are not unbiased.

On Monday, Tara tweeted out a photo of them holding up Patriots banners, declaring that they had chosen their team.

So at Media Day, we stopped them to ask why they decided to go with New England.

"Johnny has always loved Tom Brady," Tara explained. "That's how it started."

But they were most excited about meeting a different Patriot at Media Day.

"We love Rob Gronkowski to no end," Johnny said. "I'm trying to make a match between Tara Lipinski – good Polish girl – and Gronkowski."

Turning to his fellow figure skating champ, he added, "Your kids would be amazing athletes. Olympic champion and maybe Super Bowl champion? I think that would be incredible."

While we'll have to wait and see if Lipinski and Gronkowski are a love match, one thing is for sure.

"We will look stunning on Sunday," Johnny said, emphatically. "We will steal the show and we will get Super Bowl rings."
