Is this the beginning of the Winter Of Gronk?

A Reddit user caught a shirtless Rob Gronkowski pounding a few beers on a smartphone earlier this week. The 23-year-old Patriots star and record-holder for the most receiving touchdowns by a tight end in a single season headed from NOLA to Baton Rouge (about 80 miles) to enjoy the company of LSU coeds at a bar named Bogie's. Yelp reviews suggest it's the kind of place where taking off one's shirt is encouraged, never mind prohibited.

It's no secret that Gronk enjoys a cold one and the company of ladies. Last year, he caught criticism when he hit a club just hours after losing the Super Bowl before going into his famous "Summer of Gronk." This year, Gronkowski is gallivanting with less on the line but nevertheless enjoying himself. He appeared on SportsCenter and the Dan Patrick Show before paying a child $100 for a glass of lemonade.
