To the victory goes the spoils. Winning a Super Bowl means trips to the White House, Disneyland and other trips behind the velvet ropes. For Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham, it meant a trip to the Grammy’s as presenters. And as you would expect, Cruz was coerced by “NCIS” actress Pauley Perrette into doing the salsa. (You can catch a clip of the salsa here.)
And by coerced, I mean this was as scripted as your typical WWE moment. But Cruz busted out his moves, though his backup band really let him down by not providing musical accompaniment.
You know, I asked Cruz on Episode 53 of the Dave Dameshek Football Program if he’s now come to regret ever doing the salsa because he’s asked to do it at the drop of a hat at any point and any time. But Cruz said he’s good with it, and he’s happy to oblige most of the time.
And you just know Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was sitting at home wondering why he wasn’t asked to dance. (Here’s a hint, Gronk: It’s because the Giants won and dancing is for winners.)
