There are plenty of interesting stories about people playing in Super Bowl XLVII but don’t forget that many other NFL players attend

Earlier in the week, New England Patriots tight-end Rob Gronkowski was hanging out near the famed “Super Bowl Radio Row” and got a chance to make the day of a young boy brighter by buying some lemonade off of him.

CBS Sports blogger Will Brinson was on the scene and here his description of what happened:

As he (Gronkowski) was leaving the CBS section of Radio Row, he ran into a small child selling lemonade. The kid asked him to purchase a drink, and he did just that. Except that he paid a little more than the drink actually costs, handing the kid a $100 bill.

Under most circumstances, some might pass this off as a publicity stunt but since we know Gronkowski’s style, it seems like a genuine gesture and its nice to see an NFL player thinking of the kids.

Maybe that good karma translated to Gronk getting to party with some LSU coeds.
