It’s been a week since they cleared the confetti off the field in Arizona, sweeping away the physical reminder of what may have been the greatest Super Bowl in history.

With most of us snowbound here in New England, it’s hard not to still be spellbound by a game that saw a little bit of everything. We are still caught up in the afterglow of a fourth NFL championship in 14 years and continue to discuss the Malcolm Butler interception, Seattle’s horrible play-calling and Tom Brady’s place among the greatest Boston athletes of all time.

We also have to rank Rob Gronkowski’s past week with the greatest post-championship party stretches of all time. Gronk has been traveling in his family party bus, making the rounds of talk shows, and even spiked the ceremonial first puck into the crowd at Saturday night’s Bruins game.

If we’re going to think about placing Brady’s face on the Mount Rushmore of Boston sports, we also have to think about placing Gronk’s Week After in the list of Greatest Boston Parties of all time.

The tight end is now right there with Mike Napoli’s November of 2013, Brad Marchand’s Summer of 2011 and Jonathan Papelbon’s Winter of 2007-08. (We didn’t put Derek Sanderson and the 1970 and 1972 Bruins on the list, because we don’t rank the pros with the amateurs.)

Back in the fall of 2013, Napoli seemed to appear at every party in town – often finishing the night with his shirt waving over the head. It was good, clean, fun for a guy who began the season being told he had a serious hip condition he knew nothing about and finished as a mainstay in a championship lineup.

Napoli might have taken his shirt off from time to time that fall, but in 2011 Marchand didn’t seem to own a shirt. He – and the Stanley Cup – were impossible to miss if you lived in Boston that summer. The man called the “little ball of hate” by President Obama made sure he and the city enjoyed every moment of the Cup’s return.

In 2007, Papelbon took a Bud Light case and turned it into that Halloween’s hottest costume. He Riverdanced his way from Fenway to the Charles, wearing nothing but an empty case on his head and Under Armour skivvies on his butt. We were all “Shipping Up to Boston” that fall, and the closer was the man who started the party more often than not.

Each of these athletes endeared themselves to locals by staying in town and sharing the moment with fans. If you’re going to do that, you’ve got to deliver the following year. Marchand certainly did that by scoring 28 goals in the 2011-12 season, still his best. Yet he and the Bruins sputtered that spring when they were stunned by the Washington Capitals in a seven-game playoff series.

Napoli battled injuries last season and failed to duplicate his success from 2013. He believes he is in the best shape of his career entering 2015 and hits Fort Myers eager to prove his worth in the final year of his contract with the Sox.

Papelbon struggled at times in 2008, posting the highest ERA of his career at that point. But he delivered when the stakes were highest, pitching 10-1/3 scoreless innings in the postseason as the Sox were shocked by the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series.

Now, Gronkowski has a chance to do what Papelbon, Napoli and Marchand couldn’t do – repeat as a champ.

We can only imagine what that party would look like.
