You might have seen this picture over the weekend where new Clipper Sam Dekker showed Aaron Rodgers getting down and dirty to fix his sink. It got a lot of play because people love seeing Rodgers truly embracing the grittiness of Green Bay by busting out the tool box himself and getting to work.
As it turns out, Sam Dekker might not be the brightest star in the sky because Aaron Rodgers gave a detailed explanation on how he fixed it. Answer: He just plugged it in.
Via the Wisconsin State Journal:
“I’ve actually fixed my own garbage disposal before. There’s incredible tutorials on YouTube,” Rodgers said. “So I did that at one point. Fixed it.“Sam, he just got traded to L.A., I was hanging out with him Saturday. 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.“What the tutorial told me was to test the switch first, (and then) what kind of rumble you hear or lack of rumble tells you what’s going on with the garbage disposal. So, I flipped the switch and nothing happened. (That) means two things: One, it’s completely broken and it needs to be changed out, or two, it’s not plugged in.”And?“It wasn’t plugged in,” Rodgers said with a laugh. “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.’“He’s learning.”
And just like that we probably have another 100 blogs being written on how millennials don’t know shit these days. It’s okay, though, Sam has much better things to worry about like planning a wedding with Olivia Harlan and getting acclimated with his new team.
I think next time he’ll try plugging it in first.
