PHOTO: Gronkowski sports shirt of Edelman wearing Gronk shirt

Yep, it's official: We're in full-on offseason mode. First, Tom Brady was spotted mugging for the cameras with Mike Tyson. And now we have his Patriots teammates, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, paying homage to Ryan Gosling, Macaulay Culkin, muscle tees and, ultimately, each other.

The back story, via's Dan Hanzus: "Last year, Gosling was photographed wearing a T-shirt that featured an image of Culkin from his "Home Alone" Kevin McCallister days. A year later, Culkin made headlines for himself (and his weird Velvet Underground tribute band) by making a T-shirt that featured a photo of the paparazzi shot of Gosling wearing the Culkin T-shirt."

So, naturally, Edelman and Gronk took this to its next logical step: Julian donned a shirt of Rob in full-on party mode, which prompted Rob to wear a shirt of Julian wearing a shirt of Rob.

Now you know.

Next up: Brady shows up at OTAs wearing a t-shirt of this. And Bill Belichick happily returns the favor:

Pirates? Goat lovers? Who wouldn't wear that t-shirt? (EoF)
