Now that Prince Fielder left the Milwaukee Brewers and Ryan Braun was at the center of a steroid investigation, the Brewers marketing team turned to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for ticket sales in the 2012 season!
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers may have failed to win back-to-back Super Bowl, but the quarterback is being honored with one of the most elite nods for athletes who have reached super star status by hosting Saturday Night Live.
Last year’s Super Bowl MVP hinted at the idea during a Milwaukee radio interview. “I’m hopeful that we can figure something out there,” Rodgers told ESPN 540.
Already getting camera time, Rodgers was a special guest commentator at Super Bowl XLVI on NBC. It seems at though Rodgers was able to impress NBC execs off the field to be considered for the honor. Rodgers even talked to some current cast members about signing-on. Past quaterbacks who have hosted SNL include Peyton Manning, Joe Montana and Tom Brady.
Despite winning one more Super Bowl than his brother, Eli Manning needs to win a few more Oreo twist-offs before he is considered.
When one thinks football, white skinny jeans and black tank tops do not come to mind… unless you’re Tom Brady. But New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is taking some heat for posing in the newest issue of GQ Magazine and is even being called out by fellow QBs.
Although the shoot was for charity, Super Bowl winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers berated Sanchez in an ESPN radio interview: “Look at this. That’s embarrassing. Page 94 of the GQ thing here. That’s terrible.”
The comments caused such a stir, Sanchez released a statment through the Jets defending his clothing choice, “I think he was, obviously, making a joke out of it, and that’s fine, giving me a good ribbing like the guys on our team. That’s totally understandable, but I’m just happy that it ended up working out for a good cause and we got to partner with two great companies and one great charity, with Hugo Boss and Tuesday’s Children.”
Jersey Chaser False Alarm: Although Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl victory and took home MVP honors, he and Jessica Szohr are not dating. The couple have been linked together since November, but according to Szohr’s rep, who told GossipCop.com, “They are not dating.” This raises questions as Szohr was spotted at a Milwaukee Bukcs game and in Philadelphia with Rodgers after the Packers beat the Philadelphia Eagles early in the playoffs. Either Rodgers called it quits or Szohr’s publicist is not doing a good job at linking her client to the No.1 bachelor in America. Sorry V looks like it’s back to Lonely Boy. Game on Chasers. XOXO
