“I got my tickets:” Packers QB Aaron Rodgers reveals he plays Powerball, he’s excited for drawing
GREEN BAY — Some may think the Green Bay Packers’ odds of beating the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night, January 16th are like the odds of winning the $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers revealed on Wednesday, January 13th, hours before the drawing, that he plays the popular lottery game.
Rodgers loves to be seen as a common man — a regular Joe.
On Wednesday, he was — because like so many others, he was eagerly awaiting the Powerball drawing — to check his tickets against the winning numbers.
Just like the rest of us, he was hoping he’s win the record-shattering jackpot.
“I do play. Yeah. Why not?! I mean, come on! Everybody’s got the same opportunity, right? One in 292 billion — million — sorry, million. I got my tickets. I’ll be watching the drawing,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers said he would buy an NHL team if he were to win.
So if he wins — does he show up for work in Arizona on Saturday night?!
