New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski caught some flak last week for smacking his arm around when partying in Las Vegas. The arm is still in a cast from when he broke it in two places during the season. Hitting in when he's at a night club is probably not the best idea.

Gronkowski then headed to Orlando, where he was snapped wearing a shirt that said, "Sorry for partying." Could he be sending a message to fans, teammates and Patriots brass? Perhaps this is Gronk's way of saying he's done with his partying ways, and he thought a lime-green tank top worn in a chance picture with a fan would be the best way to say that.

Or Gronk happened by a touristy shop that sells shirts that say things like, "Sorry for the party," "It's 5 O'clock somewhere," or, "If you're not wasted, the day is." He thought the shirt was funny, bought it, and wore it out.

Do you really think Gronk is sorry for the party? Come on. This is Gronk. Partying is part of his DNA. Sorry for the party? He's just sorry he didn't get that sweet shirt earlier, bro.
