New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski arrived ahead of Super Bowl 50 on Wednesday to partake in the festivities, but he'd obviously prefer it if his team was competing.

After winning the Super Bowl last season, the Patriots were bested by the Denver Broncos last month in the AFC Conference Championship game, eliminating their chances at another ring this year.

"It's always a better experience playing," Gronk told ET, "but at the same time, just coming and doing a couple appearances at some parties, it's just a blast."

Of course, without the pressure of competing in the big game, Gronk can now take in more of the Super Bowl madness, and if anyone knows how to party, it's Gronk!

Last year, he put out a promotional video for his party cruise, complete with air horns and lots of fist pumping.

In addition to Super Bowl activities, Gronk is also in San Francisco working with Visa to help spread the word about the multiple ways you can pay for all that Super Bowl 50 swag at places like the NFL Shop.
