5 Fun Facts About Aaron Rodgers
- Aaron Rodgers, the lawyer. After receiving ZERO (!) DI Scholarship offers out of high school, Aaron considered quitting football to become a lawyer. Now, 15 years into his NFL career and a Super Bowl ring, Super Bowl MVP, two NFL MVPs, and seven Pro Bowls later, we think it’s safe to say he made the right career choice!
- Give the man an Emmy! Best known for his role in State Farm commercials, Aaron made an appearance as an archer in one of the final episodes of Game of Thrones. He’d get our vote for Best Performance by an Athlete in a TV Show any day, so they just might have to add that award to the lineup.
- Don’t forget dessert! One of Aaron’s favorite desserts is key lime tart. Just mix coconut milk fat, dates, almond flour, honey, lime juice, and coconut butter to create this tasty treat. We’ll be adding it to the menu for Thursday night’s game.
- Nothing like a day at The Office, literally. Aaron’s favorite TV show is in fact the iconic mockumentary, and he even made a cameo in the series’ final season as a judge on “America’s Next A Cappella Sensation.”
- Superstars squad up, golf style. Aaron Rodgers teamed up with Chris Paul to host the second annual Bahar Mar Showdown this summer, a golf tournament pitting eight NFL and eight NBA players against each other. Only one of these teams had Aaron Rodgers, and that team won yet again.
