Everybody has their way of dealing with heartache.

But, if I'm a fan of the New England Patriots, I would be upset after seeing a picture of tight end Rob Gronkowski dancing shirtless at an after-party.

For some reason, the Patriots had a post-game, invite-only party at Victory Field, home of the AAA Indianapolis Indians baseball team.

The party featured LMFAO and Maroon 5, and the losing team's players and fans sulked in dance moves.

Maybe it's just a personal preference, but if I'm a player and I just lost the Super Bowl my first instinct is not to party.

Tom Brady had the same idea; he did not attend.

Also, if the media has been on my case all week about a high-ankle sprain, my first instinct is not to dance.

Gronkowski, who set an NFL record for most receiving yards and touchdowns by a tight end in a single season, only caught two passes in the Super Bowl for 26 yards. His ankle injury looked like it was slowing him down, as he wasn't nearly as effective as he has been all season.

Which is why, if I'm a Patriots fan, I'm upset about him dancing on stage after a loss.

I get that you don't want to get too down in the dumps, like Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes, but Gronkowski has to be smarter than this.

He's already been the center of controversy after taking a shirtless picture with porn star Bibi Jones during the season, and this will just add on to his list of things not to do.

You don't dance on stage with an injured ankle after losing the Super Bowl.
