Patriots didn't fix dent Gronk put on Lombardi Trophy

The New England Patriotscelebrated their Super Bowl LIII victory Thursday night, receiving their rings and reveling in the franchise's sixth title.

One revelation from the event: The team didn't fix the Lombardi Trophy that newly retired tight end Rob Gronkowski dented by attempting to bunt with it before the Boston Red Sox's Opening Day festivities earlier this spring.

The dinged-up Lombardi brought out the laughs Thursday night.

Bill Belichick's hearty chuckle when Tom Brady asked, "Is this the one Gronk dented?" underscores why the depression should never be repaired.

Gronk made his mark on the Patriots' dynasty as a matchup nightmare with a personality most adored. Now he's got a dent for all to remember him by.
