"On a personal note, my affection for Rodgers increased exponentially at ESPN's Sundance party during the conference championships, when Rodgers and his buddies unabashedly rooted against nemesis Favre and the Vikings down the stretch and celebrated raucously when New Orleans pulled it out. Rodgers couldn't have been more delighted; he did everything but climb on the bar and start a "F--- YOU, FAVRE!" chant. I will always root for him after that. And yes, that story is 100 percent true."
I actually don't blame Rodgers at all for that. But I don't think you'll blame me that, when I got my copy of Sports Illustrated's NFL preview issue featuring Rodgers on the cover today, I gently tore the cover off and threw it away so I could try enjoy the rest of the magazine.
