Aaron Rodgers is a Dodgeball Champion, Credits Following the Five D's of Dodgeball

Aaron Rodgers Dodgeball

You may have missed it if you were watching Game 1 of the NBA Finals instead of The Ocho, but the Green Bay Packers held a dodgeball tournament yesterday as a team building activity. In the end, it was the team drafted by Aaron Rodgers that came out on top over James Jones’ squad. In a bold strategy that paid off, Rodgers went with both a long snapper and a kicker for his team. In a move straight out of the movie Dodgeball, Rodgers caught a throw from Jordy Nelson, allowing Mason Crosby back into the game and spurring ménage a trois of pain with a 3 on 1 to eliminate Jones.

Rodgers credited his knowledge of the Vince Vaughn movie for his success: “I’ve watched ‘DodgeBall’ many times, and I’ve followed the five D’s in dodgeball – dodge, duck, dip, dive and, of course, dodge,” he said. “Patches O’Houlihan and I are good buddies.”

Offensive lineman Josh Sitton, meanwhile, wants everyone to know that Rodgers survived the onslaught of balls heading his way.
