Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been seen several times on the sideline in Milwaukee supporting the green and cream, but as of Friday the California native took his support to a whole new level.
The announcement of Aaron Rodgers’ commitment was announced during the Bucks’ win in Game 3 against the Boston Celtics in Milwaukee. Rodgers was spotted courtside sitting next to his girlfriend, Danica Patrick, and Bucks co-owner Wes Edens.
In doing so, Rodgers became the only active NFL player to be a minority owner of an NBA team. Over the years, Aaron Rodgers has won the hearts of sports fans all over the state of Wisconsin. Not only has Rodgers been spotted at Milwaukee Bucks games, but also at Wisconsin Badgers basketball games.
In an interview with FOX Sports Wisconsin, Aaron Rodgers said:
“The opportunity to join the ownership group here, in a state that I love, a region that I’m entrenched in for a number of years, a team that I’ve followed and cheered for and attended games at for a long time, to be a minority owner now is pretty special.”
Another reason for becoming a minority owner, Rodgers said, is to have a tie to the region that extends beyond his time in Green Bay that keeps him coming back. He has lived in Wisconsin for 13 years now and doesn’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon.
