“So Aaron, we see you were spotted with [insert name of broad here]. Care to comment on that relationship?”
“Grumble, grumble, [inaudible], mraaah!”
Well, not anymore! Leave it to Jason Wilde to actually ask Rodgers questions that we want to know the answers too. Unlike the clowns at the Press Gazette and Journal Sentinel — who also did interviews with Rodgers this week — Wilde asked some things that didn’t fall into the category of retreaded bullshit.
So we got this exchange.
ESPNWisconsin: Those photos, and the attention/scrutiny that came after it, would seem to be something that would really bother you. Did it bother you?
Rodgers: No. For one, I’m real happy in my relationship. And I understand what comes with it. And two, the last couple years I’ve learned a lot about perspective and what’s important. And, that you cannot, when you’ve had success individually and collectively as a team and you are highlighted for the things you’ve done on the field and off the field, you cannot hide from the spotlight. You have to learn to embrace it.
I think it’s a process for me. I think it really took a while for me – and you still work through it – to get to a comfort level with that. But finally, you say, ‘You know what? It comes with the territory.’ It’s not what I signed up for. I signed up to play football, because I love it, and have as long as I can remember – watching the Niners on TV as a kid with my family to watching my favorite players and following them in high school and college and becoming a professional. This is what I always wanted to do. You don’t realize what all comes with it at times, but I think on some level, you have to embrace that. And the older you get, you focus on the things that are most important, and you learn to deal with or embrace the things that are more difficult.
Well, very grown up of you, Aaron.
Of course, we’d venture to say Rodgers has probably never had a piece of ass like Olivia Munn before. I mean, why wouldn’t you want to show that off?
“Hey everybody, look at what I got!”
He’s like the kid with the coolest Trapper Keeper on the first day of school.
