Gossip: Rob Gronkowski’s spring break, Tim Tebow’s love triangle

Gronkowski has been enjoying his own version of March Madness this offseason.

If they ever make a sequel to the movie “Wedding Crashers” you would have to think they’d cast Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski as the lead. He’s young, good looking (at least according to our lady friends) and can dance on one leg. Oh yeah, and he knows how to mix his own drinks.
 
In case you haven’t been following Gronk’s exploits this past week, let’s recap. First, he was spotted partying with a pair of co-eds (one allegedly just 16 years old) in Aruba. That was just stop one of the Gronk Gone Wild tour. Now, he’s moved on to South Padre Island, where he’s been boozing with bros, slamming down pizza and throwing back beer bongs.
 
In his spare time, he’s working on his campaign to be the Madden NFL 13 cover boy. Ahhh, it’s good to be the Gronk.

 

Iron Mike vs. Broadway

Mike Tyson is a one-man wrecking crew. Outside the boxing ring, Tyson was once known for raising pigeons and threatening to eat babies … now, thanks to his Oscar-worthy performance in “The Hangover,” the former heavyweight champion has crawled back into our good graces.

Recently, Tyson told TMZ that he wants to cash in on the success of his one-man Vegas show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” and turn it into a Broadway show.

Hey, if South Park geniuses Trey Parker and Matt Stone can win nine Tony Awards, there’s no telling what Iron Mike can do. Mmmmm, kay.

Free Payton shirts selling like beignets

Well, Sean Payton will have something to wear while sipping his Hurricane this NFL season. Within hours of Roger Goodell going all Penn State on the disgraced Saints coach, vendors on Bourbon Street were selling “Free Sean Payton” T-shirts. (For the record, not as trendy as the Free Weezy shirts)

According to NOLA.com, some 500 shirts had been sold within the first three hours. By the way, did you know the Super Bowl is in New Orleans this year? That should be fun, commish.

“I got a feeling that because the Super Bowl is here this year, the commissioner wants to make sure the Saints don’t make the Super Bowl. Well, I’m gonna boycott the NFL and picket the Super Bowl. And you know what? If the players can’t do it no more, I’ll put up $1,000 for the first one to put a QB on his ass!,” one Saints fan told NOLA.com.

‘Glee’-ful Tebow heads to Big Apple

Tim Tebow is taking his talents (read: Christian values) to New York after the deal sending him to the Jets finally went down Wednesday evening. Wow, imagine the Broadway possibilities: Tebow on Ice, Jersey Tebow, The Book of Tebow, Jesus Christ Superstar … OK, enough. But Tebow is a Jet and now the fun begins as he plays under a foul-mouthed coach with a foot fetish.

Speaking of fetishes … The New York Post reports that Tebow is in the middle of a love triangle. The uber-religious QB has been seen mingling with Glee star Dianna Agron. Problem is Agron is in a relationship with actor Sebastian Stan. Feel free to insert your own Tebowing joke here.
