TheDailyBeast: Wildest Celebrity Wagers

Aaron Rodgers vs. Boyz II Men

Mayors and governors famously make public wagers when their local teams play in a Super Bowl or World Series, but this year a player got in on the action—for a regular-season game. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers bet Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men that the Packers would defeat the San Francisco 49ers in the season opener last September. According to TMZ, if the Niners lost, Morris agreed to wear a Rodgers jersey all week, and if they won, Rodgers would have to wear the jersey of San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith all week.

The payoff: The 49ers defeated the Packers 30-22, but Rodgers didn’t pay up. “There’s nothing to that,” Rodgers said after the game. “That got blown way out of proportion. It was at best a joke between friends, and, unfortunately, the great reporting of TMZ blew another one.” But Boyz II Men didn’t let him off the hook. They tweeted after the game:“Pressing the jersey now! RT @shawnstockman And that should be that for the Packer/ 9er game. Looks like a jersey will be worn!!”
