What did we learn on Day 2 of the “Is Aaron Rodgers engaged,” saga? That Aaron Rodgers, on his ESPN Wisconsin radio show, wouldn’t confirm or deny that the giant rock on his girlfriend’s finger is an engagement ring.
Host Jason Wilde, who said on Monday he wouldn’t ask Rodgers such intrusive questions, sorta changed his tune today, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
LISTEN TO FULL SHOW – HERE – 11-13-12 show. He immediately gets into the Vandy-Ole Miss discussion. 7:00 mark is when Wilde sorta asks him if he wants to share the big news.
He talked about his reaction to the concussions suffered on Sunday by quarterbacks Michael Vick of the Eagles, Alex Smith of the 49ers and Jay Cutler of the Bears.
But he declined to talk about speculation that he became engaged over the team’s bye week.
“Anything else happen during the bye week?” reporter Jason Wilde of WAUK-AM (540) asked Rodgers after they had talked about attending his brother’s game. “Because boy, oh, boy I sure get a lot of questions on Twitter.”
Rodgers did not answer.
“Nothing?” Wilde said.
Rodgers grunted, indicating he was not interested in talking about the story.
Rodgers was, however, in the mood to talk about the drunken idiots at Ole Miss who were allegedly acting like fools during the Vandy game.
“Whoever was checking tickets, they were letting a bunch of intoxicated fans, both young and old, interrupt not only my family but the fans around us too many times. Which led to me actually being a little worried about the safety of some of my friends around us, the fellow parents and my parents as well, because of the inebriation of some of those fans.”
We’ll assume Aaron’s dodging of the first question as confirmation that there are prenuptial papers being drawn up by a lawyer.
