So there’s this Sporting News interview with Aaron Rodgers. In it, Rodgers is asked if he’s living with anybody. Rodgers replies:

I’ve got a roommate, a guy I met in town. He works for the Packers now as an athletic trainer, but he was interning when I met him and we just hit it off. He’s been great for me as far as great conversations outside of football. Our friendship goes a lot deeper than what we do.

From there, the floodgayts opened. Like this comment on my earlier post.

And it’s being reported that Rodgers is seeking PR advice from Jeff Gordon.* It’s also rumored that he’ll be receiving press conference training from Mike Piazza.** And a teleconference with Troy Aikman.*** I read somewhere that he’s never had a serious girlfriend. Whatever. Watch this video:

Now I can’t be sure, but to me it looks like he’s making the DNA hard-coded move of checking the rack while her face is elsewhere facing.

But whatever. Gay or not, we need him to step up and play. Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing, remember? I was going to throw in some quick-hitters about wide receivers, sending balls deep and taking wide stances, but as you know, I’m lazy. The work involved in crafting something funny out of that stuff just seemed really hard. Oops. Plus, it serves no purpose. Does it really matter if he likes women or men? Is there going to be a run on soap-on-a-rope in Green Bay if he is gay? I doubt it. It doesn’t affect anyone outside of his immediate circle, and even talking about it here feels like I’m limping into Beavis and Butt-Head territory. I just said limp. Heh-heh.

I almost forgot – there was a report a few years ago about the 10 most gay-friendly cities in America. And Wisconsin? We had three of ’em. So like it or not, Packer fans, it’s raining men. And lesbians. So get on board or pucker up. Err, wait.
