Rodgers’ competitive nature shines through in softball game

On Sunday morning, an interview was published in which Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers admits to being intensely competitive.  Later in the day, he made the most of that motivation.

Per the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Rodgers went four-for-four with two home runs during Donald Driver’s annual charity softball game, which was played before 8,745 fans at Fox Cities Stadium.

“You ask my friends, I’m not a lot of fun to be around when I’m not doing well at golf, or we played wiffle ball the other day and I was ticked we lost at that,” Rodgers had told the Press-Gazette.  “I don’t like losing at video games.  I don’t like losing at card games.  That’s a strong driver.”

A woman who attended the game apparently is even more driven than Rodgers.  Video showed her aggressively snatching a cleat that Driver had thrown to a young boy after the game.  According to the Press-Gazette, Driver learned the identity of the boy, who’ll get a new cleat and other stuff.

    It sure DIDN’T show through on the Pro Bowl. What a disgrace that game is to football. Should have canceled it.

    Yep, it’s offseason.

    Driver should have fastballed his remaining cleat at that woman’s face for ripping a shoe away from a kid.

    Rodgers offered no apology for coming in cleats high on one of the office workers playing in the game. Saying he was just trying to break up a double play, and had no way of knowing she was in the early stages of pregnancy at the time.

    Did he hit into any Discount Double plays?

    Unfortunately, every team has fans like this. Just let the kid have the shoe. Classy move by Driver.

    Drew Brees wants an explanation on why he was not invited to play

    They should sign up the greedy cheeser broad that ripped Driver’s shoe away from that poor little kid — she has better hands than Jermichel Finley.

    Each time Rodgers hit a ball, he turned around to the crowd and gave everyone a discount double check.

    Rodgers doesn’t like losing in video games.

    Noobs on Call of Duty: MW3 need an explanation.

    Did Rodgers cry to the ump that they let him wear a skirt in football so he should be able to hit off a “T” in the softball game?

    His competitive nature is the reason why he’s the best in the NFL right now. He’s got at least 3 more rings before his career is over. Book it.
