MLB: Twitter bet over Braun attracts attention
MILWAUKEE — One NFL fan is having a little fun with Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers over his vociferous support of Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun.
It all started when Todd Sutton tweeted last year that Rodgers was delusional over his insistence that Braun had not used performance-enhancing drugs. Rodgers then responded that he would bet a year’s salary that his friend was clean.
Now that Braun has accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension rather than fight Major League Baseball over evidence he used PEDs, Sutton told USA Today he would settle for a game check.
The 37-year-old flight nurse from Denver told the newspaper he’s not expecting to hear from Rodgers. He also said he still likes the quarterback.
Rodgers, who has more than 1 million Twitter followers, had not posted on his account since Thursday.
