Aaron Rodgers Loses Bet About Ryan Braun’s PED Involvement

Aaron Rodgers Loses Bet About Ryan Braun's PED InvolvementWith the news that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended the remainder of the 2013 season, it looks like Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is the one who should be eating crow after his tweets from a year ago.

‘Exonerated’

Rodgers tweeted in full confidence that the media was slandering an innocent man and even told one fan he’d put his salary for next season on Braun’s innocence.

“MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth will set u free #exonerated”

“@toddsutton ya I’d put my salary next year on it. #ponyup #exonerated”


‘Game check’

Lindsay Jones of USA Today Sports interviewed the fan whom Rodgers tweeted at, who jokingly said he’d take just a game check from Rodgers, which would cost Rodgers $281,250.

Now, hindsight is always 20/20, and there’s obviously no way Rodgers could have known his baseball buddy was guilty, but these were pretty bold claims.

Do you think Aaron Rodgers would indeed pony up the money that he put up for the bet on his friend’s innocence? And what will become of Ryan Braun?

The Right Way Of Complimenting Your Guy

Everyone loves a good compliment — even men. With the help of two degreed relationship experts, we’ve come up with a solid list of do’s and don’ts to remember when sending some flattery a man’s way:

DON’T be impressed by his job, but DO notice how well he does it

While you might think drooling over his job title or salary is a great way to make a man feel worthwhile, letting him know that you’re a fan of how well he does at his chosen profession is a better way of showing interest in his career.

DON’T say that you like his shirt; DO say how handsome he looks wearing it

“‘That’s a great shirt’ says nothing about how the person making the compliment feels. ‘I like how handsome you look in that shirt/suit/uniform,’ on the other hand, makes the compliment more personal and meaningful.” And remember, complimenting him when he is wearing something you love is the first step in getting him to toss those not-so-nice clothes you hate.


DO tell him when you like his friends

Let him know that you see what makes these friendships important to him. And remember to compliment him in front of his friends, because it will emphasize the fact that you only have eyes for him. Plus, it’ll give those buddies of his plenty of reasons to wish they had a partner like you.

DO praise his manners

Say, ‘When you pulled out the chair for me at dinner, I felt really special. Thank you.” Before you know it, he’ll be opening doors for you left and right. But all joking aside, you’ll make him feel like a debonair gentleman, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that… right, ladies?
