Aaron Rodgers Loves Ben Harper And Hates Taking Selfies

We saw Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers enjoying himself with some teammates and Tom Brady at the Kentucky Derby last week. SB Nation sent Charlotte Wilder there to write a long, flowing piece on the event and of course she tracked down Rodgers.

AR was hanging out by himself listening to someone — not Ben Harper — perform a Ben Harper song at the Barnstable Brown Party. And this is where we learned QB1 loves Ben Harper.

Wilder asked Rodgers if he plays an instrument. He does — the guitar.

“Ben is the reason I play. I sent him a signed jersey after I saw him in concert, and he sent me back a guitar. Can you believe that? He sent me a guitar!”

That conversation then led to a run-in with Eric Bakhtiari, brother of David.

“Aaron hates this shit,” says Bakhtiari, referring to people asking Rodgers for photos. “Normally, you know who I let through? Veterans and attractive women. My brother guards Aaron on the field, I guard my brother off it.”

That’s funny because Rodgers is always posing for selfies with random fans. I suppose that says something about him — he hates doing it, but he does it anyway.

So, knowing this, do you ask Aaron Rodgers to take a selfie with you if you run into him?
