ATLANTA — Aaron Rodgers’ troubled relationship with his family may have hit a new low this week after his parents were seen treating Matt Ryan to an ice cream cone. The parents of the Green Bay quarterback tousled Ryan’s hair and gave him hugs as the Falcons signal caller enjoyed a cookies and cream cone with rainbow sprinkles at Morellis Gourmet Ice Cream in Atlanta. Their birth son will be in the city later this week to take on Ryan in the NFC Championship Game.
Rodgers has reportedly cut all ties to his family due to their disappointment with his lifestyle choices, and his parents now showing affection to a rival QB on the eve of a big game will likely only make the relationship worse.
The quarterback said he did not want to talk about personal issues, but did admit that “it’s disappointing to hear. Cookies and cream with rainbow sprinkles is my favorite and I think they know that.”
Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers, wearing matching RYAN 2 jerseys, were heard telling the Falcons QB that he “is such a good boy” and the “kind of son any parents would be proud to have” and “very tall and humble” and also “pure and righteous for not fornicating with a Hollywood harlot.”
Aaron’s father said he will attend Sunday’s game between the Packers and Falcons, the first Green Bay game he’s been to in quite some time.
“I will be there to cheer on my son,” he said. “My real son. Matt. It feels good to be proud of my son again and we are excited to sit in Matt’s box with his beautiful wife and kids.”
