It has been established that Danica Patrick is or was a Chicago Bears fan. And then she started dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
So what did that change? Patrick has said that she has since become someone who would cheer for Rodgers. However, her father, a lifelong Bears fan, will not be cheering for Rodgers.
T.J. Patrick says the first time he met Rodgers, he wanted to tackle him.
“Actually, the first time we met him I told the kids I was going to wear my Brian Urlacher jersey and tackle him,” T.J. recalled to Autoweek, referring to the former Bears linebacker. “I couldn’t find it. He walked in and asked, ‘Where is your jersey?’ I told him I couldn’t find it. He said, ‘I would respect you a lot more if you had it on.’
“He’s good about it. He knows. He is very intelligent and still has a sense a humor.”
So where does this leave Rodgers and Patrick?
AR obviously gets it and since this relationship is all probably just for publicity anyway, who cares? The elder Patrick says Danica is still a Bears fan.
That’s actually kind of funny, since Rodgers pretty much owns the Bears year in and year out.
