08:03 AM ET 07.16 | In addition to the attention he's earned for less noble behavior, Rob Gronkowski has also been lauded for his work in the community. [Last week] we gave deserved kudos to the Gronkowski family for donating equipment, money, and time for a workout area at a Buffalo area facility for young people dealing with addiction. This week, we're going to talk about Rob Gronkowski again. ... After posing nude for ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue" and partying at events for the issue and the ESPYs (Gronkowski was up for two awards but was shut out), and co-hosting "Access Hollywood Live" in recent days ... don't be surprised if he lays low for the next couple of weeks. Via a league source, Gronkowski has been told by the team that his summer of Gronk, so to speak, is over.

When you???re a Pat,
You???re a Pat all the way
From your first draft day hat
To retirement day.
When you???re a Pat,
You can't do what you can,
You got minders around,
You???re a Patriot man!
You???re never alone,
You???re always in the spotlight!
You???d better not clown --
You know that that is not right,
Tom's well protected!
Then you are set
With a capital P,
Which you???ll never forget
Till they trade you some day.
When you???re a Pat,
You stay
A Pat!

And his play time should be over. Time for getting ready for business.

It's OK. We replaced the apostrophes with question marks, so there are no copyright issues.

I was going to waste time pointing out that the Pats actually sent that message out to all their players, not just Gronk. But after this post, everything else is irrelevant.

Yeah, that is acceptable behavior for an NFL player minus the bodyguard for Madonna.

Seriously, when you look at the hot young arm candy Bob Kraft is toting these days, nothing Gronk has done seems particularly out of place.

July 16, 2012  09:14 AM ET

Did you rewrite Westside Story's "When You're a Jet"? They could do an NFL version but instead of the Jets and the Sharks, it could be the Jets and the Fins and Bill Parcells could have played the role of Maria.

+1. It's time to make the donuts.

OK, kid, you've had your summer vacation, now it's time for training camp.
Time to grow up a bit, also, can't be a teen-ager forever!

The Tuna, I've just met a guy named The Tuna,
And suddenly that name, will never be the same to me.
The Tuna, I won't kiss a guy named The Tuna,
But suddenly I've found, how wonderful a sound can be.
The Tuna, now I'm glad he's no longer a Dolphin,
The Tuna, but he should be coachin', not golfin'....

Like that?
