 Shocker: 20-something guy likes hot blond. (US PRESSWIRE)
Posted by Ryan Wilson

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady spent his bye week in the Bahamas with his family. Teammate Rob Gronkowski, who is single, had no such obligations. Which is good since he hung out with adult film star BiBi Jones during his time off. We know this because a jersey-clad Jones tweeted pictures of a shirtless Gronkowski. (Here's another one, with Gronkowski wearing a t-shirt.)

Seems harmless enough, since they're both adults, nobody broke any laws and, you know, they're both adults.

During his weekly radio appearance on WEEI, Brady was asked if he'd seen the Gronkowski photo in question.

"No, but I've heard. He never ceases to amaze me," Brady said. "I would have guessed there would be pictures of him somehow with his shirt off, posing or something like that. I'm just glad, I'm no longer the one that people are making fun of on my team on a daily basis."

That's a great response because the internet has long taken great pleasure in mocking Brady for any number of reasons.

Brady also figured that Gronkowski would end up hearing from head coach Bill Belichick. "He's used to that walk into coach's office now. He probably knows it's coming. ... He has more fun than anybody I'll tell you that. He doesn't miss a fun day."

On Wednesday, the media asked Gronkowski about his bye-week escapades, and after consulting with the Patriots PR person, he … apologized. Seriously (via WEEI.com).

“I didn’t intend anything or to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots, on behalf of Robert Kraft,” said Gronkowski, who acknowledged he met with the Patriots owner and apologized for any bad publicity that resulted from Twitter photos. “That’s all. It was just a simple picture and that’s all, and from here on out, I’m just here to talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and the big game this weekend.”

Gronkowski added that he regrets the photos going public.

“Just not intended to hurt anyone or ruin the reputation of the New England Patriots in any way,” he said. “It’s a great organization here and a great football program. I can’t wait to get out to practice and get focused on the Pittsburgh Steelers because that’s all I’m worried about and all I care about.”

So what's Gronkowski apologizing for again? Having his shirt off? Who was embarrassed by this? (We were more upset by those topless pictures of Andre Smith at his pro day a few years ago.) Is he the only person in the Pats organization who has heard of the deep, dark underworld of pornography?

It seems a bit much, frankly. Brady's right -- if anything, it's goofy. And if Belichick wants to talk to his tight end about causing distractions, that's fine. But there's nothing to be sorry about. Jones said the two didn't even have sex.

“Nothing happened," she said during an appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston. "I wish something had, but nothing happened. … I asked if I could have some pictures with him and he said, ‘Yeah, wait, put on my jersey.’ I said, ‘OK.’ We were taking pictures. I asked him if I could put it on Twitter because some athletes wouldn’t want that since I do do adult films and they don’t want to be associated with that. He was really cool with it because I have more Twitter followers than him.”

If Gronkowski is guilty of anything it's trying to increase his Twitter profile. And we're pretty sure he did that.

It's unbelievably lame that this is even a story... WHO CARES? Some uptight over-religious freak? They shouldn't watch football then becasue thier are cheerleaders. It's not like he put out a porn video with her.

So we're open-minded if we celebrate Rob Gronkowski for what he does in his personal life (with porn stars) but closed-minded if we celebrate Tim Tebow for what he does in his personal life (at church)?  If open-mindedness and tolerance is what we're after shouldn't we treat them the same?

I guess the nfl is trying to avoid another Ben Roethlisberger incident.

But in the picture, Rob Gronkowski had this big grin on his face that his mother have would love to smack off of him. :)

 I hear that the next time an NFL player is going to get some sex action, he has to notify the Commish and all of his teammates of his intent to get approval. If not, a $25000 fine will be involked
True, I also undestand that Goodell is also going to insist that players have at least one sex session per year in either London, Mexico City or Dusseldorf. It will replace one they would normally have at home. There's no better way to export the NFL's brand of football.

If I was hitting that, I would take her home to meet my wife, so SHE could be proud of me too!

He took a picture with a pretty girl, what's the big deal?  Who cares what her profession is, the media takes too much time digging into player's personal lives.

Where's the cocaine at?  Who cares, he's f'n a porn star, good for him!



I agree with this person.  He had to apologize for tagging a porn star?  I would think a congratulations would be more in order.

 No one should have to take heat for this.  Everyone in the free world can have there opinion on it, but that's all it is.  You would rather see him walking the elderly across the street, but he chose a differant path.  So be it, it's his life so leave him alone!

Did they say which of his families Brady was in the Bahamas with?  But I just do not understand why anyone has to apologize for having a photo taken with anyone.  Its just a picture.
