You never know what game the kids are playing these days. When it comes to celebrities and athletes with plenty of time and money on their hands — it’s the shirt game.

What in the heck is the shirt game?

It’s basically where one person wears a shirt of the other, who is also wearing a shirt of that person. Get it?

Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots have apparently started up their own version:

Gronk then responded with this:

This ‘game’ was made famous by Macaulay Culkin and Ryan Gossling, who did the same thing last week…

As for the actual Patriots football team, it should be right where it’s always at in 2014 — near the top of the AFC. No other teams in the AFC East have made moves that will put them ahead of New England, and it’s just hard to see Bill Belichick’s team just suddenly falling off this season. The Pats don’t rebuild, they just reload.

Gronk is still in the process of reloading after ACL surgery a few months back. He’s currently rehabing, but there’s no timetable for his return. But at worst, you’d have to think he’ll make it back by the midway point of 2014. As with most years, there’s no reason to rush him back and risk the possibility of another injury.
