For all the times that we’ve talked about how likable Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems, this sure hasn’t been his best week. It started off playfully enough, with Rodgers and Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men making a bet that if the Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend, Rodgers would have to wear an Alex Smith jersey. The Packers, of course, lost and a man even wrote erotic fan fiction as a result to hold up his end of a bet that he made.
So Rodgers wore the Smith jersey then, right? Wrong.
But earlier today, Rodgers addressed the media — and when he was asked about the wager, he sounded like a man trying to get out of donning his rival’s jersey. “There’s nothing to that,” Rodgers said … adding, “That got blown way out of proportion.” Still, Rodgers DID acknowledge a bet was made … saying, “It was at best a joke between friends, and, unfortunately, the great reporting of TMZ blew another one.” (Via TMZ)
Wow, Rodgers just took the masters of random CAPS LOCK and ellipses to the wood shed. Hopefully they have a killer response.
Aaron, if anybody blew it … it was you.
OHHHHHH … snap. Anyway, I’m not sure whose side to take here, because it probably was a joke and we all just got carried away with it. After all, I’m not sure that Rodgers’ teammates, coming off a loss – even though Rodgers told ESPN it’s “just one game” – would be too pleased with him acknowledging their defeat in the worst way possible.
So I found the happy medium and I photoshopped Rodgers into a bunch of 49ers fan pictures so it looks like he’s wearing their jerseys and it also goes well with his love of photobombing. Really, it’s the best solution for everyone, so if Rodgers wants to be my best friend now, I’d be cool with that.
