Unless you live under the proverbial rock or just spend your time online trolling Stargate forums, you've probably seen the TwitPics of New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski posing with adult entertainment star Bibi Jones during his bye weekend. Well, those pics must have caused somewhat of a shit show with Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Today he released this statement expressing that he didn't intend to hurt the reputation of the organization that writes his paycheck. It's *kinda* (but not really) sounds like an apology.
via the Boston Hearld:
”I mean, I didn’t intend anything to hurt the reputation of anyone on the New England Patriots or on behalf of Robert Kraft,” Gronkowski said. ”It was a simple picture. That’s all. I’m here now. I’m here to talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and the big game this weekend.” ”I was not intending to hurt anyone or ruin the reputation of the New England Patriots in any way,” Gronkowski said again. ”It’s a great organization here, 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. that’s all I care about.”
Meanwhile, BiBi is in a bit of a media circus of her own about her jersey chasing. Yesterday she divulged to Business Insider about how an MLB agent tap her "talents" to recruit potential clients after Arizona Diamondbacks games in 2010. The adult entertainment star, states baseball is her favorite sport, claims she slept with "over 10" players in 2010, many of whom eventually signed with her agent friend. That story is getting plenty of play today in the sports media world, so BiBi fired this out on Twitter:
Shocking. This is the definition of much ado about nothing, folks.
