It’s a strange situation. Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, will wear a San Francisco 49ers jersey, the team that beat Green Bay on Sunday, because Boyz II Men, the group best known for singing a capella in the early 90s, won a bet.
Yes, apparently Rodgers was responsible for getting the world’s greatest a capella group to sing the National Anthem prior to the Packers / Niners game on Sunday. All the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback had to do was make a bet with Boyz II Men singer Nathan Morris.
According to Complex, Morris and Rodgers made a wager on the outcome of Sunday’s game. If the Packers won, Morris would wear a Rodgers jersey for the rest of the week. If the Packers lost, Rodgers would have to wear a 49ers jersey (of any player he wanted) for the rest of the week.
Well, Rodgers lost.
According to 49ers QB Alex Smith the bet was real.
“I did hear about the bet, someone told me about it. I’ll have to call him and get a picture.”
That picture hasn’t surfaced yet. If there’s any good news for Rodgers it’s that he’ll only have to wear the jersey for a few days. The Packers have a short week this week as they’ll be playing the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.
Do you think Aaron Rodgers will follow through with his Boyz II Men bet?
