Aaron Rodgers backs out of Boyz II Men jersey bet

Before week one’s game against the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a little wager with the group Boyz II Men. Rodgers wanted the Boyz to sing the National Anthem before the season opener, and they did so.

However, there was a little side action going on. Rodgers also made a bet with singer Nathan Morris of the group. If the Packers lost the game, Morris proposed, Rodgers would have to wear a 49ers jersey through this entire week.

The Packers did of course lose to the 49ers 30-22 on Sunday. Now, according to TMZ.com, Aaron Rodgers is trying to back out of his end of the bet.

“There’s nothing to that,” Rodgers said. “That got blown way out of proportion.”

When pressed, Rodgers said that “It was at best a joke between friends, and, unfortunately, the great reporting of TMZ blew another one.”

That is not how the Boyz II Men took it as they posted this via their twitter on Sunday:

It looks as though Aaron Rodgers is a sore loser, one of those kids who threatened to take their ball and go home if they did not get their way. What a poor sport.
