Hate That Aaron Rodgers Got In Retweet Game
For a couple years, we went away from ‘Hey if we get 5,000 retweets, we won’t have to take a final!’ At least, it felt like that then it started popping up again. Kids took it to another level though. A smarter level. They went from a number to a famous athlete. First, we had Kobe Bryant who retweeted a class, and sure enough, they don’t have a final. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers gave a class in Iowa a special retweet to ensure they do not have a final on Friday.

Good for the kids, I guess, and Rodgers continues to be active on Twitter this offseason (There’s this whole Rick Vaughn in Major League II theory burning in my head that I’m saving for the Fall but that’s for another time). Rodgers wanted to do something nice for kids, but I’m just not about it. Call me old school. Call me a social media purist or a hater of fun, but it’s an odd move by the kids and teacher. If I was in that position and kid asked me, I would say ‘No, we’re taking the final because it’s probably going to happen due to being a good PR move for the athlete.’
My good friend, Seth, asked why this is a story, and it’s pretty simple. There’s nothing to fucking talk about with the NFL come May.
