-- Rob Gronkowski’s girlfriend, Camille Kostek, had a message for Patriots haters after the team’s AFC Championship Game win.

TMZ caught up with the swimsuit model at LAX on Monday and asked if she had anything to say to those who are rooting against the Patriots.

"You hate us 'cause you ain't us," Kostek said.

She also said Gronkowski is ready to go for the Super Bowl.

"He's amped, he's so pumped," Kostek said. " … All I gotta say is, good luck! I think it's gonna be a great game ... Patriots coming out with a W."

-- Chick-fil-a has a famous policy of being closed on Sunday and is making no exceptions for its Mercedes-Benz Stadium location on the day of the Super Bowl.

The chain’s concession stand inside the stadium in Atlanta will remain closed when the Patriots come to town to play the Rams on Feb. 3, the stadium's general manager, Scott Jenkins, said on Monday.

Chick-fil-a issued a statement on its website reaffirming the policy founder Truett Cathy instituted at the very first restaurant in 1946.

“Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose — a practice we uphold today,” the statement reads.

The stadium’s concession stand will reportedly be a “Fries Up” stand, which will serve just fries and a variety of toppings.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It’s beyond anything that anybody could ever imagine. Because this is something nobody could ever imagine in our wildest dreams. It’s not even something that you think about because it’s so bizarre. And yet, it still keeps happening. And in the middle of this year, coming out of Tennessee, many of us kind of thought that the Patriots were stumbling and bumbling and not destined for greatness. And lo and behold, as we saw the last couple, five or six weeks, they have done nothing but play spectacularly well and peak at the right time.” -- Tom Brady, Sr., on his son, Tom Brady and the Patriots going to the Super Bowl
