Clippers' Sam Dekker Thanks Aaron Rodgers for Fixing His Kitchen Sink

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistSeptember 4, 2017

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will soon be busy with work stuff, but before the NFL season begins, Sam Dekker made sure to call in a favor.

The Los Angeles Clippers forward posted a photo of the superstar quarterback getting his hands dirty repairing Dekker's kitchen sink. Per the complimentary tweet, one can surmise that the MVP succeeded.

Yet it appears Rodgers was not compensated for his labor, per Dekker's fiancee, Olivia Harlan.

On a sadder note, Rodgers' training-camp mustache didn't last a full week. It will be missed.

UPDATE: Thursday, Sept. 7 at 1:30 p.m. ET

Per Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal, Rodgers discussed the story behind the photo. The 33-year-old, who learned how to fix his garbage disposal by watching YouTube tutorials, agreed to help the younger Dekker during Green Bay's off weekend.

"Sam, he just got traded to L.A., I was hanging out with him Saturday," Rodgers told Wilde. "He was having some sink issues, asked for my help. He’s 23 years old. I know he’s engaged and taking the next step to being an adult, but he’s not quite there yet. So I went under the sink."

It turns out he didn't have much to fix.

"It wasn’t plugged in," Rodgers said. "So, that’s the picture of me holding the plug as I call him from the other room, and said, ‘Hey, idiot, it wasn’t plugged in.’"
