Patients at Children's Hospital 'Ask Aaron' about pranks and NFL defenses
GREEN BAY- Each week TODAY'S TMJ4 lets fans ask Quarterback Aaron Rodgers the questions.
On Tuesday, patients at Childrens' Hospital get to "Ask Aaron."
DAVIAN: "Hi Aaron, my name is Davian. What was the hardest defensive team you went against so far in the NFL?"
AARON: "Well, I would say the hardest defense that we play is probably the Chicago Bears. Just because they are a common opponent, we play them twice a year, they know us, we know them, and I think schematically, it's the most difficult week of preparation for us."
BOE: "Hi Aaron. My name is Boe. These nurses over here, I need to play a prank on them. What is the best prank you've played on any of your teammates?"
WAYNE: "Good question."
AARON: "Yeah that's a great question. There are still some pranks out there that don't have a culprit. So you have to be careful on what things that you admit to but this training cramp we pulled some pranks on some of the rookies. We threw water balloons at them, we shot them with air soft guns, we leaned garbage cans full of water up against their door to flood their room."
AARON: "Oh Doc Margolis"
DR. DAVE MARGOLIS: "Hey Aaron. Dr. Dave Margolis from Childrens' Hospital of Wisconsin. We really appreciate your support of the MACC Fund. I think that you could support the MACC Fund even more if you went to medical school and became a doctor. Since your SAT score was higher than mine,"
DR. DAVE MARGOLIS: "Would you consider doing that?"
AARON: "Uh… you know what? I left school early. I was never crazy about college. I enjoyed living in the dorms and playing football but I don't think I could go through four more years of schooling. Sorry Doc Margolis. But if you want to give me an honorary doctorate, I'll definitely take it."
WAYNE: "Open for that."
MICHAEL: "Hi Aaron. I'm Michael, here at Children's Hospital...I'm just wondering…"
AARON: "Look at the nut cracker."
MICHAEL: "How do you keep calm when lineman are trying to tackle you?"
AARON: "I'm sure on TV it can seem a little crazy out there but you get used to keeping your eyes down field and not looking at the rush. But you know, it is a little nerve racking if you are outside the pocket and you see a really big guy running full speed at you."
CARLOS: "Hey Aaron. This is Carlos. Can you please teach our quarterback Cutler some moves, if not, can you join our team? (laughing)"
AARON: "I love it. This young guy has an Urlacher jersey on, a Green Bay helmet in the back, and I think it's a fat head of me in the background there. (Laughs)."
WAYNE: "It looks like it, yeah."
AARON: "He's a little torn I think on his allegiances. I appreciate it though."
SHAWN: "Hi Aaron Rodgers. This is Shawn McDonald from Waukesha, Wisconsin. And this is my Buckaneers fan, Maddie.What I want to know is, how come I took a 5 year old in 2009 to Tampa Bay and she went as a Packer fan and left now as a number one Tampa Bay fan? The reason is, for a five year old a pirate ship with cannons, every time they score, best thing in the world."
AARON: (Laughs) "I can understand that. I really can. I think every kid and a lot of adults dream about being pirates. So I am not surprised by that. Hopefully with the new stadium renovations we might be able to incorporate some sort of spectacular show that might influence some of these kids here."
Additional note: We are sad to say that Maddie, the little Buccaneers fan, passed away Friday. The family did get to go on their Make-A-Wish trip to Disney last week. Maddie was 7 years old.
