Aaron Rodgers and a few of his Packers teammates picked off their colleagues one by one in an epic dodgeball tournament.
Mike Spofford of Packers.com brings us a full report as well as the following image of Rodgers going HAM on one of his teammates with a dodgeball.
Yeah, I wouldn't want to be on the other side of that ball.
According to the report, the mini-tournament is just another "team-building activity" the organization throws after their mandatory camp. Past years have featured, "bowling, paintball and clay shooting."
With bad weather outside, the Packers brought the team into the gym for some random fun. I am only slightly sad nobody thought of one big game of "Duck, Duck, Goose." I also think Red Rover might be entertaining if the team is taking any suggestions.
Now, when you have one of the best quarterbacks in the league on your team, you are going to do pretty well in a dodgeball tournament. The Packers were separated into eight squads that included players and coaches.
Rodgers' crew consisted of, among others, Mason Crosby, Randall Cobb, Johnny Jolly and Brett Goode. With a gunslinger on their side, Team Rodgers took the tourney, giving the QB an opportunity to quote from his favorite movie.
"I’ve watched ‘DodgeBall’ many times, and I’ve followed the five D’s in dodgeball – dodge, duck, dip, dive and, of course, dodge. Patches O’Houlihan and I are good buddies."
I like to think he popped his collar on his way out of the gym.
Receiver James Jones reveals how he came so close to tasting glory, only to get a gut full of Rodgers' high-velocity venom.
I knew Mason and A-Rod were going to throw it at me at the same time, so I was just holding the ball and right when they let them go, I dropped it. I ducked Mason’s ball, and I saw Aaron’s ball and it hit me right in the stomach.
I should have caught it and got him out, then I would have gotten another player and we would have won, but he got me.
If you are wondering what Rodgers and his team looked like just moments before the start of the tourney, here you go:
Packers players certainly understand the true concept of team building is embracing the very game that rewards picking off the weaker players.
While this sounds like a great deal of fun, I am glad I will never know what it feels like to get blasted with a fastball from Rodgers.
Now if the NFL imposes a rule that any catch allows Green Bay to gain a player from the sidelines, the Packers will be all set.
