 Shocker: 20-something guy likes hot blond. (US PRESSWIRE)

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

“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.

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

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 for a head blow. Celebesy will be the next subject in the next CBA.

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

He has nothing to apologize for, at least he didn't give a woman genetial herpes and then seek treatment from doctors under the alias "Ron Mexico". What's the big deal. He didn't do that, at least.

Big freaken deal, the media found some crap to write about again. I guess Jesus would be in trouble if he played in the NFL..rumor has it that he washed the feet of Mary. Thank God some NFL players are human. I guess we are supposed to believe our Superstars walk on water. Hey look at the Red Sox they have a beer bash during Red Sox games ( ESPN pointed that out for 3 weeks). If the truth was known, some of the greatest baseball and football players from every team in major Sports acted like normal humans, chasing women, getting drunk, and chasing women.  Shame on them. Lets just put curfews on all our players and be sure they say their prayers every night before they go to bed at 10PM. The talking heads in the Media would still find something to dig up.

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

What does he need to apologize for?  I bet Kraft and Bellichek have tons of porn on their computers. its in the encrypted files folder with those other tapes that they make.

at least Gronk didn't try to rape a frumpy skank somewhere in some hole in the wall bar in GA. Good for him. Like the article said; for all those who are in denial that porn exists and football players bang hot chicks (usually consensually) get a clue.

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

If this woman ends up pregnant and then Gronkowski leaves her for another woman, will the Patrioits require an apology?

Oh wait, that question has already been answered.

The only thing he should be apologizing for is not getting more than a photo with BiBi, if indeed that's the case.

The reason the picture in question didn't go lower than his waist is because Kraft and Belichick currently have his balls.
