The Wisconsin Sports Awards were Thursday evening, because everyone and everything needs an awards show!
Per usual, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in the house. He won for state athlete of the year during the show, which was held in Madison. The Packers also won team of the year.
The night was short on star power, at least from the Packers. Tackle David Bakhtiari was the only other starter in attendance. He brought backup linemen Kyle Murphy and (I think) Jason Spriggs along with him. And that was that in terms of Packers.
It’s hard to tell a Packers lineman from one year to the next with how fast these guys grow hair.
It looks like Bakhtiari and the boys got the private plane treatment. I’m guessing that’s a prop plane, but still…
Here’s Rodgers with Ethan Happ and Jabari Parker.
Here he is with Zak Showalter, who did Rodgers’ Belt during the NCAA Tournament.
Here’s Bakhtiari supposedly getting a Red Lobster date with former UW volleyball player Lauren Carlini.
And here’s this because, well, why the hell not? Looking great, Natalie Jansen!
