When did Dr. Aaron Rodgers, QB, acquire a PhD in epidemiology?

From The Washington Post | Opinionby Max Boot, Columnist

After more than four decades on this earth, I should be wise enough to avoid idolizing any athletes. But, as a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, I have been an unabashed fan of Aaron Rodgers ever since he was the starting quarterback of the Golden Bears from 2003 to 2005. A three-time National Football League most valuable player and future Hall of Famer, he is one of the greatest QBs of all time.

But the magic has now worn off. My football idol has shown that he has feet of clay — and a mind full of mush. A genius on the football field, Rodgers has revealed himself to be a pandemic ignoramus. A microscopic virus has now tackled him for the biggest loss of his storied career — and he has no one else to blame. He has done the impossible: sacked himself.

Now instead of cheering for Rodgers to again demonstrate his mastery on the gridiron, I’m rooting for the NFL to throw the book at him for his reckless and destructive conduct. He endangered not only his teammates but also any fans who might still be naive enough to view him as a role model.
