The Big 1070/The Big 920
ESPN the Magazine did a cool thing recently when they had athletes write letters of advice to themselves as young athletes.
Read Rodgers hand written letter here: http://espn.go.com/i/otl/20130627_kids/aaron.pdf
Here is what Rodgers said via espn.com:
Just let the ball go out of bounds. You love basketball, so I know better than to tell you not to play in that pickup game on the court at Neal Dow Elementary on Jan. 2, 2000, in Chico, Calif. But there will be a fast break and a bad pass, and instead of letting the ball go, you're gonna try to make a play. You'll turn, plant and try to pass it back toward the rim. That's when your knee gives out.
Thanks to that injury, achieving your dreams will be that much more difficult. You're gonna sneak into your high school library and log on to Rivals.com thinking, Maybe I'll see my name on the list of top college recruits. You won't find it. At one point you'll get so frustrated that you'll actually consider giving up football altogether to pursue a baseball career. Bad idea.
Having to go the junior college route will be humbling. I'm better than this, you'll think. Heck, even Mom won't think Butte College is a good idea at first. But just wait until you get to know coach [Craig] Rigsbee. Remember that everything at this time of your life is an opportunity, so make the most of them.
Because here's the thing: You're gonna gain so much confidence at Butte. Your knee will start to feel better. And you will realize your NFL potential after being coached by an incredible QB mind in coach Jeff Tedford. Listen and take notes. And in the end, after a rough start to your NFL career, you will finally throw your first NFL TD in 2007 on national TV, then stand on the podium in 2011 after Super Bowl XLV. And all the frustration, heartache and disappointment in between will have been worth it. The journey is sweet. So try to enjoy it as much as you can.
And if that doesn't work? The winning numbers to the $600 million Powerball in May 2013 are 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and 11. Never mind. It's gonna work out.
