Rob Gronkowski Got Hit in the Head by a Beer Can During the Parade

February 7, 2019

The Patriots' parade was attended by 1.5 million people, congratulating the team on their sixth Super Bowl championship. And of course when it's a big party with that many people, somebody ends up doing something to ruin the mood.

While appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Rob Gronkowski explains that during the parade ended up taking a can of beer to the head from an "overly-passionate" fan. "I'm just chillin' and lookin' and then POOOM! POP!" The impact left a tiny scar to the corner of his left eye.

"Then my dad, he's blocking all of the next shots. You can see him karate-kicking a beer flying at me!" 

Fallon later probes Gronk on whether or not he'll be retiring and transitioning over into Hollywood action films, but he says it's too early to say. Especially because it hasn't even been a week since they won the Super Bowl.

But then we got to see the excited, competitve Gronk for the secord time this week as he and Fallon went up against Liam Hemsworth and Jessica Williams in a game of Catchphrase.
