Rob Gronkowski is the life of every party, and that held true at the Patriots Super Bowl parade on Tuesday. With every great party comes great stories, and there's no better place to share those tales than on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."
Gronk made his way to New York on Wednesday, and after a hilarious game of Catchphrase with Liam Hemsworth and Jessica Williams, Gronk and the newest Lombardi trophy settled in to talk with Jimmy about the whirlwind of a week. Coming off of the parade, Gronk showed off a special kind of battle wound after being hit in the face with a beer can a fan threw onto his duck boat.
"Everyone on the duck boat is juking them. We're getting good practice in for next season," he said. "Then next thing you know, I move back a little. I'm just chilling, looking then, pop! A full beer can right to the face."
Despite a cut on his face, Gronk laughed off the parade injury, and though he, of course, brought the jokes to "The Tonight Show," Gronk also reflected back on a special moment in the game. Before making the catch that set up Sony Michel's touchdown run, Julian Edelman gave Gronk a pep talk.
"Julian's an outspoken guy on our team, out there getting us going, having a phenomenal game. A couple of times throughout the playoffs, he comes over to me, looks at me and goes, 'Gronk.' You know, he drops a couple of F bombs at me," Gronk said. "'Let's [expletive] go, baby. You're going to get this catch, Rob. You're going to make a play for us.' I was just like, 'Oh, I like that Jules. I like that.'
"Then a couple of plays later, make two plays in a row on the same drive. He's making plays left and right, and you know, he comes right back up to me in the huddle and says he always believed in me. Same thing with everyone else. We all believe in each other and play for each other."
We're not crying. You're crying.
