All week long, the idiots that report on the Green Bay Packers have been blathering on about a “pitch count” for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Like, “Oh, hey, do you think Aaron Rodgers will be on a pitch count?”
We ignored these “stories” completely because… why in the hell would he be on a pitch count?
Rodgers didn’t hurt his arm last season. He’s not 40 years old. He isn’t in a quarterback competition.
The idea itself was moronic, but since it’s been bandied about in the media, someone had to ask Rodgers about it.
“I am 31, and I feel great,” Rodgers said. “I’m not 35, 36, 37 or 38. I don’t know what this pitch count is all about. But I’ve iced my arm probably less than five times in my entire life. I’m very happy with the gift I was given with this right arm, and it doesn’t give me any problems.”
So in case you were wondering, there you go.
He’s gonna throw lasers.
And he’s gonna throw as many goddam lasers as he wants!
