 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

Good for him - he didn't shoot himself in the leg, he didn't wreck his motorcycle, he didn't eliminate a canine and more importantly, he didn't make any excuses.  He went out and had a good time with a stunning and attractive young lady...because he can, something some of us have done and many wish we could do.  And, if we could take off our shirt in public because we look like an infomercial for P90X, we would.  On another note, Rob, please have a lousy week, I'm playing against you in fantasy football.

typical media p.c. bullspit:  we're gonna rip ya a new one if you do anything remotely questionable even if it's legal and acceptable and something that people take pictures of and keep in their photo albums UNTIL they're the ones to do it and then it's HANDS OFF!  apologies are empty these days because they're just their to placate the liberal media hypocrites.

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

What on God's green earth is this man apologizing for?

I appreciate his sentiment about not wanting to embarass the Patriots organization, but people need to quit obsessing about who is putting their private parts where. This whole thing really is puerile and doesn't reflect well on whoever asked the question from WEEI.

I'm with Gronkowski, let's get ready for a (hopefully) a good game on Sunday.

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for pics with porn star

Rob Gronkowski likes pretty girls.  He may be the only Patriot I respect now, maybe Welker.  Wow, this is huge news.  He is single, broke no laws, apologized for something, (not sure why) and on his off week.  He did something that 99% of us guys would like to do and 90% would be afraid to do, (I fall into both categories).

I wonder if a special law was passed in the Bahamas that as long as Tom Brady is there, no defensive action or defensive players are allowed on the Island.  The Brady Rule could become the Brady Law!  Yes, I hate New England, Tom Brady and Billy Belichick but Gronkowski, nah, she sounded interested, he probably should ask her out.  Brady probably would be mad as Gronkowski date would be more popular than his (Brady's) wife.  Brady have something else to whine about.
