Last week, in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship, the Green Bay Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks 27-17. Afterwards, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his postgame presser told the media he thought God was a Packers fan, thanks to the Packers getting the victory.
The comment appeared to be backhanded swipe at Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who after winning the NFC title game against Green Bay last season said that God was the reason his team was able to comeback from a 16-7 deficit with just over two minutes left in the game.
“That’s God setting it up to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special.” Wilson said after the win.
Wilson was asked about Rodgers’ comments last Sunday, and Wilson — probably smartly — didn’t take the bait.
Well, to add to this “beef” of sorts, comedian Joel McHale hilariously held a faux press conference dressed up as God, in which he addressed the rumors as to whether or not he is in fact a Green Bay Packers or Seattle Seahawks fan.
“Let me address the rumors, I am not a Packers fan, and I’m also not a Seahawks fan. I, God, though, do have one favorite team — my fantasy team — John Elway’s Teeth.”
He also clarified that the reason the Philadelphia Eagles are just 1-2 so far this season is that Chip Kelly dropped his boy Tim Tebow, and warned teams to not make deals with the devil, even though it has worked out so well for the New England Patriots.
Well played, Joel McHale.
