Mr. Rodger’s Play Book

February 8th, 2011 by Holly Hess

It’s the day after the Super Bowl here in the Frozen Tundra and people are relishing in a Packer’s victory.  To be honest, I really don’t pay much attention to football and I am married to a Bear’s fan (now, now; nobody’s perfect).  Still, I do like the human interest stories that always come out of the game.  Here’s my favorite from this year.

I heard that during “Media Day” last week, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked what his favorite book was.  Maybe the journalist was trying to be clever.  Afterall, do football players really read?  Seems they do, Mr. Reporter.  Aaron Rodgers, athlete, superstar, MVP, role model and Christian quickly replied that the Bible is his favorite book.

Isn’t that a great answer and just what we want to hear from a man so many of our young (and old) people look up to?  I don’t know much about quarterback sneaks or two point conversions but when it comes to choosing a playbook for life, I think Aaron Rodgers is on the right page.

So cheers to you, Mr. Rodgers, for being a good football player and a good man.  Now go have some fun at Disney World!
