Unless you’ve been living under a rock, far, far away from the midwest, Aaron Rodgers is nothing short of a household name. The storied quarterback has played with the Green Bay Packers for the last 17 years, leading the team to Super Bowl glory in 2010, and is a four-time NFL MVP, becoming the fifth player to win consecutive MVP Awards, now trailing only Peyton Manning on the career list.
But, of course, there’s more to the man than just the athlete. Below, Rodgers fills us in on what makes him tick off the field. Hint: a whole lot of Princess Bride.
