GREEN BAY - In this week's Ask Aaron web exclusive, the Packers quarterback admits he misses the weather of his home state, described his Disneyland experience and admitted he didn't get the game Canasta, something he was being taught by a character in recent Associated Bank commercials.
MARY: “Hi Aaron. I’m Mary and I’m a Packers fan in Torrance, California. You’ve been living in Wisconsin for a long time so far and it’s an awesome place, obviously. There’s interesting people, beautiful scenery, and of course all that yummy cheese. I’m wondering is there anything that you miss about California?”
AARON: “Yeah. I miss the beach. I miss the weather. I miss a bunch of things. I’m just going to stop right there. I love Wisconsin. I don’t like the weather, but I love everything else about it. Love playing here. But there’s nothing like that California weather.”
PAIGE: “Hello Mr. Aaron Rodgers. My name is Paige and I am seven years old. I live in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. You are my favorite Packer. I know you went to Disney after the Super Bowl. My favorite ride was Rock’N’Roll Rollercoaster. What was yours?”
AARON: “I didn’t get a chance to ride on any of the rides. We just came in. We were two hours late. We jumped off we got in the convertible. We rode the parade. I got out. Did this media and then I was whisked away.
"But when I was a kid we used to go to Disneyland all the time. My favorite ride was Autopia, which was the cars, and when you are real little you feel like you are actually driving them., and you can steer it. But it’s on this little rail so you can’t really veer to far off the road. It’s not like some go-carts that you can actually steer and bang into people.”
TEAM OF CANASTA PLAYERS: “Hi Aaron. I’m Peg Bremmer, and I’m Jannnet Janis, and I’m Carol Bork and we know you love Canasta so we have a Canasta question for you. Do holding the black threes free the pile? And Aaron, we can always use a fourth!”
AARON: “I’d say I’m more of an expert in Sheepshead and Euchre which are two of my favorite Midwest games. I don’t know a whole lot about Canasta. Penny was trying to teach me in those Associated Bank commercials. I didn’t really understand what she was talking about though.”
