Apparently, Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers is taking this “frozen tundra” business a bit too literally.
PACKERS NEWS reports that the heir apparent to Brett Favre was in Alaska this week, participating in a dog sled race.
Rodgers was in town to take part in the two-man Jeff Studdert Passenger Race on Wednesday. Although he was just cargo for the first half of the journey, Aaron did eventually take the reins, and was able to guide his team to the finish line.
Pack fans are hoping he can do the same at Lambeau Field next fall.
The FAIRBANKS DAILY NEWS-MINER further describes the action:
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers once again found himself facing the rear ends of several athletes poised for action. This time, it wasn’t 300-pound linemen waiting for the “hike” but a team of jumping, barking and impatient sled dogs.
Hopefully, no one fed the pups any chili before race time.
