Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers shared a few awkward moments at an awards show
Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre shared a stage at last night’s NFL honors ceremony. To say the two men looked uncomfortable would be an understatement. In fact, Rodgers looked like he’d rather be having dinner with Skip Bayless, Tony Kornheiser and Greg Jennings’ sister. And who could blame him?
So why was Rodgers willing to go along with the publicity stunt? That’s simple. Because the league asked him to do it, and because he’s all class. As for what motivated Favre, that’s not as clear, but I think I know the reason. He’s probably desperate to get back together with the organization, and what better way to start the reconciliation process than to bury the hatchet with Titletown’s new favorite son on national TV.
Favre probably never expected the fans to move on from him so quickly and the organization to move on from him so successfully. For someone with an ego the size of Kim Kardashian’s butt, it was only a matter of time before he attempted to rebuild the bridge he burned to the ground four and a half years ago.
I for one, couldn’t care less if that bridge ever gets rebuilt, but I realize that other Packers fans feel differently. They want to see Favre and the organization hug it out, and last night might’ve been the first very awkward step toward making that happen. If so, those fans have yet another thing to thank Rodgers for.
