Packers QB and last season MVP Aaron Rodgers grew up a 49ers fan, and due to a bet he will have to don the jersey of the team he was hoping would draft him and grew up rooting for.
Rodgers made a bet, and after the 49ers beat the Pack 30-22 on opening day in Green Bay, Rodgers now has to wear 49ers QB Alex Smith’s jersey.
Rodgers made a bet with singer Nathan Morris of the group Boyz II Men: If Morris’ band agreed to sing the National Anthem before the game, Rodgers would have to wear an Alex Smith jersey if the Packers lost. Morris sang and now Rodgers must come through.
“I did hear about the bet, someone told me about it,” said Smith, who has become good friends with Rodgers. “I’ll have to call him and get a picture.”
