Sometimes it pays to confess your love for your favorite athlete, especially immediately following a surgical procedure.

Diehard Green Bay Packers fan Callie Kessler was still under anesthesia when she was overcome with emotion while talking about how much she loves Aaron Rodgers. To her credit, Kessler had no shame and posted the video on her Twitter account. Beware that it contains some inappropriate language.

As you can see, Kessler tagged Rodgers in the post. That caught the attention of Rodgers’ longtime girlfriend Danica Patrick, and the former NASCAR driver responded by telling Kessler Patrick and Rodgers would love to buy her 400 Popsicles.

This isn’t the first time we have seen a sports fan deliver a message to his or her favorite player while drugged out after surgery, but things don’t always work out. We’re glad Callie’s message made it into the right hands.
