Rodgers' Twitter bet over Braun attracts attention
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, including the hashtags ponyup and exonerated.
Now that Braun has accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension rather than fight Major League Baseball over evidence he used PEDs, Sutton tells USA Today he would settle for a game check.
The 37-year-old flight nurse from Denver tells the newspaper he's not expecting to hear from Rodgers. He also says he still likes the quarterback.
Rodgers, who has more than 1 million Twitter followers, had not posted on his account since Thursday.
