The Patriots have begun informing season ticket-holders that prices will not increase for the 2013 season. The team made the announcement by sending letters through the mail this week

The Pats will host the Jets, Dolphins, Bills, Broncos, Steelers, Browns, Saints and Buccaneers in the regular season. Preseason opponents have not been announced.

The full 2013 schedule is expected to be released in April.

Fashion statement

Rob Gronkowski was spotted in Orlando this week wearing a “Sorry For Partying” tank top, and the photos have popped up across the Internet.

Read into it what you will. It’s a common phrase that has been said on college campuses for years, and the T-shirts and tank tops can be purchased after a quick Google search.

Is it a direct response to last week’s TMZ video of the tight end dancing and wrestling on stage at a Las Vegas nightclub? Maybe, but Gronkowski wasn’t in Orlando making a public appearance where the media was scheduled to take photos. So, it might not have been a conscious effort to fire back. It was just as likely that no one would have been there to take the photos and put them on the web.

Of course, former Patriots Willie McGinest and Tedy Bruschi have come out and said Gronkowski needs an intervention for making too many offseason headlines. Yesterday, Logan Mankins said it wasn’t necessary unless Gronkowski breaks the law or injuries his twice-broken forearm.
