(670 The Score) Did you think that Rob Gronkowski would go quietly into retirement, becoming more tame and relaxed after his playing career? The fun is just beginning for the now-former Patriots tight end.

Last Monday, Gronkowski and members of the Patriots' championship team celebrated their latest Super Bowl title at Fenway Park with the defending World Series champion Red Sox. The Patriots brought with them each of their six Lombardi Trophies, including the most recent one won in February, left in the care of Gronkowski.

Before the Patriots took to Fenway Park to throw out the ceremonial first pitch with their hardware, they were having some fun behind the scenes. That included wide receiver and Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman practicing his pitch -- and Gronkowski using the Lombardi Trophy as a baseball bat.
