The other day we celebrated New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for his shameless use of Twitter as a way to hit on ridiculously attractive women, like our beloved Kate Upton. In fact, Gronk's Twitter use led him straight into the arms of adult film actress Bibi Jones last weekend, while the Patriots were enjoying their bye week. Jones claims that nothing happened between the two, that Gronk always carries his jersey with him so he can take pictures of girls wearing nothing but it, and that all they did was watch her movies together... with 5 other guys. I know, it's a little too much for me to put together in my head this morning, too.
But the national media has, without any surprise in the world, blown this story up into something way beyond how cool Gronk is. Most of the old school reporters and columnists see this as deplorable behavior and have brought down their hammers of Murrow with rage upon the single 22-year old eventual millionaire. Sadly, they won, because after meeting with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Gronk has issued an apology.
After a chat with Kraft, the second-year player issued this apology: “I didn’t intend anything to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots or on behalf of Robert Kraft. It was just a simple picture and that’s all.”

Meanwhile, Jones is eating this up for everything its worth, and who can blame her? Her Twitter feed is full of compliments for Gronk, as well as reassurances to her 100,000+ followers that they did not sleep together. However, she does admit that she slept with Phoenix Coyotes enforcer Paul Bissonnette, who in turn denies it, but if you're familiar with Bissonnette at all and the fact that he calls himself BizNasty, it's probably true. Jones has also Tweeted that she would love to have sex with Steve Nash, so Nash if you're out there and you'd like to pick up some beef but Arby's is closed, then you know who to call.
And since Gronk's apology has me a little sad today, I thought we'd give Ms. Jones another minute of fame and celebrate her love of sports, specifically the New York Yankees, Oklahoma Sooners, Oklahoma City Thunder (I think she likes you, Kevin Durant) and Arizona Cardinals.
