Aaron Rodgers had kind words for a profane Eagles fan, yielding sizable support for 2023 mayoral election
After proclaiming “I own you” to Bears fans” during a touchdown celebration in Chicago, Aaron Rodgers has been at the center of a renewed conversation about player-fan interaction. Philadelphia fans, specifically Eagles fans, inevitably came up, as usually happens when the media goes down this road. That was no surprise. What did take me aback was the comments came from Rodgers, and they were… positive? Take a look at this tweet from Packers beat writer Ryan Wood:
So many great things crammed into so few characters. What a story from Rodgers, what a heckling effort from the Lone Ranger in the stands, and what good faith reporting from the Green Bay Post-Gazette.
I seriously need to know who this man was. As far as I’m concerned, he should be the next mayor of Philadelphia. Clearly, Jim Kenney isn’t doing anything. Hell, he’s had his thumb up his ass since before COVID was a twinkle in Xi Jinping’s eye.
We need a leader that will not compromise his agenda, no matter how little progress it may seem to be making. This Eagles fan sat in the Linc and screamed the same things for three straight quarters. If our government had that kind of determination, maybe they’d actually fix something in this damn town for once.
Philadelphia’s political future aside, this is one of the few times other media outlets have chosen to share stories about Philly fans that do not damage our reputation on a national scale. Instead, we had a shining example of our city’s indomitable spirit put on display for all to see. Wonderful stuff.
Since he went ahead and started these positive vibes, I want to voice my support for Aaron Rodgers as well. If I can sit there week in and week out saying whatever I want to someone, especially one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, that person can say whatever they want, whenever they want during the game. It’s only fair, especially when he’s part-owner of the damn team.
