Fans have gotten accustomed to watching Aaron Rodgers make a weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show. The former Indianapolis Colts kicker has formed a good rapport with Rodgers, who is often accompanied by former teammate and co-host, AJ Hawk.
On Tuesday’s installment of the show, Rodgers spoke about one of his favorite pastimes, basketball.
“We have a basketball goal in the team room and actually one in the indoor as well. I refuse to shoot jumpers though, I only shoot hook shots. That’s a true story anybody in my teammates can back me up on that one. Only hook shots, pretty lethal with them. Do they fall? Yeah,” Rodgers said on the show.
