During a radio interview this week, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers discussed a multitude of topics, including Green Bay’s disheartening loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday and the team’s short week of preparation heading into its divisional matchup with the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.
But it wasn’t all football talk. Rodgers also addressed some more lighthearted fare, such as what makes him laugh.
His response wasn’t the standard fare: Jim Carrey movies, Nicholas Sparks books or the many things Wisconsinites make out of cheese. Nope, what Rodgers really finds hilarious is the smugness routinely displayed by Alex Trebek during Jeopardy!
Via Sports Radio Interviews:
On what makes him laugh:
“The smugness of Alex Trebek when he corrects a contestant on Jeopardy. I just think it’s so incredible. It’s like, ‘Alex, really, you knew that one?’ I mean, he’s just so smug about it sometimes. I love ‘Celebrity Jeopardy.’ That’s another one of my favorite things. I mean, ‘SNL’ and ‘MADtv’ has been the source of a lot of laughter.”
Wait. MADtv? Is that show still on? No, it is not. According to Wikipedia, that show went the way of the Dodo bird in 2009.

The Packers’ Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers like going deep on 3rd and short.
Because the Packers have the personnel and talent to do it. That’s the simple answer.
But it still seems to drive people nuts whenever Aaron Rodgers launches a pass downfield on 3rd and short. It doesn’t drive me nuts, and never will as long as Rodgers is the quarterback and the Packers receivers...

For all the times that we’ve talked about how likable Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems, this sure hasn’t been his best week. It started off playfully enough, with Rodgers and Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men making a bet that if the Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend, Rodgers would have to wear an Alex Smith jersey. The Packers, of course, lost...

Chicago Bears (1-0) at Green Bay Packers (0-1)
This is the game of the week right here. I’ve been high on the Bears all offseason, naming them as one of my underrated teams. In fact, I thought they were the 2nd best team in the NFC, but couldn’t have them winning the division because the Packers were just so good. Well, the Packers aren’t looking so good anymore. Aaron Rodgers...
It was not a pretty night for quarterbacks in the football universe, unless your name happens to be Aaron Rodgers of course. While the Green Bay Packers were humiliating Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears up in Lambeau Field, there was college football to soak in.
