Aaron Rodgers Has a Great UFO Story

Independence Day

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a hell of a UFO story.

He told it on Pete Holmes’ You Made It Weird podcast.

It happened on the eve of the 2005 NFL Draft. Rodgers says it was an Independence Day-sized UFO and describes it as a “large orange, left-to-right moving object.”

Rodgers witnessed this event with a couple other guys. He says after the UFO disappeared, four fighter jets flew over.

There was no news coverage of the event.

You know what this is, right? Our alien overlords came down on the eve of the 2005 NFL Draft and set in motion a plan that would have Rodgers fall to the Green Bay Packers at pick No. 24, thus gifting us an unprecedented streak of Hall of Fame-level quarterback play.

Now, if only Ted Thompson would stop wasting that gift.

Listen to the story here.

    Maybe Rodgers should get “Alien Gifts” tattooed on his arms.

    Maybe Aaron isn’t Aaron. Probaly a clone from out yonder somewhere. TT knows this and is not concerned with fixing the Packers problems Just order up another Aaron when he gets to old.
