With a freshly signed three-year, $150.8 million extension below his belt, storied Inexperienced Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is again for an additional season within the ol’ Nationwide Soccer League. And on Day 1 of Packers coaching camp, that belt additionally occurred to be bolstering a ribbed white A-shirt tucked right into a pair of drainpipe blue denims.Mixed with a shoulder-grazing hairdo, the look garnered comparisons to Nicolas Cage’s flip because the Military-Ranger-turned-convict-liberator Cameron Poe within the 1997 prison-break thriller Con Air.
On Tuesday, the Packers posted a dramatic slo-mo video of Rogers saddling as much as the stadium with duffle bag in hand, trying quarterback-ly pensive whereas slicking a hand by his mane. Followers instantly clocked his resemblance to Cage’s Poe, right down to the shoulder-length mane, 5 o’clock (within the morning) shadow, and common grisly comportment. (To jog your reminiscence, the film stars Cage—alongside Steve Buscemi, John Malkovich, Dave Chapelle, and John Cusack, amongst others—as an affable ex-con making an attempt to rescue his fellow prisoners when Malkovich’s supervillain character, Cyrus “The Virus” Grissom, makes an attempt a scorched-earth coup of the airplane they’re all being transported on.)
The doorway, whereas clearly orchestrated in some cheeky method—midway by the 30-second clip, Rogers tosses the bag to the bottom, as if he’s simply set a constructing on fireplace and is strolling away with out even turning to observe it burn—does increase some questions. (Like: is Rodgers nonetheless making an attempt to, uh, thwart
Cyrus The Virus?)
Or, maybe, he’s simply making an attempt to remind his fellow Packers that many palms make mild work, or one thing. Then once more, it doesn’t come as an excessive amount of of a shock to Rodgers intent on trolling together with his preseason theatrics. On Wednesday, he rocked a The Workplace T-shirt and a pair of holographic protect sun shades. Good to comprise multitudes.
