Rick Reilly blasted Jay Cutler in a column on ESPN last week for his inability to publicize the good deeds he does for children’s hospitals. Well, where does Aaron Rodgers (Aaron Godgers as some Packer fans call him, credit to Woy on the nick name) rank on Reilly’s list o’ jolly quarterbacks?
A video on youtube has surfaced of an enthusiastic Packers fan who suffered through breast cancer who hoped to get Aaron’s autograph. As fate has it…Aaron Rodgers would walk right past her without acknowledging she even existed while a news camera caught the footage.
I have no idea if Rodgers was on a schedule so I don’t want to personally blast him for that. However, Clay Mathews did stop to autograph her jersey, he also had a conversation with her.
I applaud Clay Mathews as a human being for taking the time to do that for that woman. It may be an inconvenience to stop for an elderly woman for a star like Rodgers or Mathews, however that is a moment in her life that she will never forget.
