Aaron Rodgers hopped into a black tent on the sidelines during the third quarter of Green Bay’s victory over Philadelphia on Monday night. Thousands of snarky Twitter comments ensued because a football player hopping into a black tent is nothing if not a comedic opportunity.
Was he just R-E-L-A-X-ing? Was he getting missives from Olivia Munn? Was this all part of the Packers’ innovative new sweat lodge program? Was he going to the bathroom?
That final theory may be correct after former teammate A.J. Hawk shed some light on the situation.
Having a place where trainers can attend to perhaps-pantsless players in privacy or for players to answer nature’s call without having to sprint to the locker room is a no-brainer. I’m actually a bit surprised the practice wasn’t adopted league-wide years ago.
The next logical step is a show on NFL Network where Tony Siragusa transforms a basic privacy tent into a sick man cave. People would watch.
