The Patriots' tight end and host of the football clinic with more cocktail hours than any other, Rob Gronkowski, has done a dumb thing again.

This time, it was a racially insensitive dumb thing, as he mocked an Asian man in a bar

"They told me he could only cook fried rice," Gronkowski said into a microphone at the club. He then called the man "Leslie Chow," the Asian character played by Ken Jeong in "The Hangover" movies.

Says Gronkowski, "I feel bad."

Well, I think he's learned his lesson. Send him to bed without a cocktail hour and let him think about what he's done.
