Back in the day, I was one of those line dancin’ waitresses at the Texas Roadhouse in Ashwaubenon, and that’s where I met Aaron Rodgers.
I was working there in 2005, and now and then Packers players would come in to eat during training camp. One time, Aaron Rodgers and a few of his buddies just happened to be at one of my tables.
This was when A-Rod was just a clean-shaven, baby-faced rookie, and Brett Favre was still the love of Lambeau. The one thing I remember very well about good ol’ Rodgers, was how immaturely he acted. He even threw peanuts at me and threatened he could get me fired when I threw them back!
When he chucked another peanut at me and missed I said, “Hey, nice throw. Aren’t you supposed to be a quarterback or something?”
That got a great big “OOOH!” from the rest of the table.
What if that was Aaron’s attempt at flirting with me? Darn. Too bad I was engaged!
Although I thought Rodgers was just a punk back then, he sure turned into quite a respectable young man (not to mention a Super Bowl MVP). He can even grow hair on his face!
When all that Brett Favre drama went down, Rodgers took it upon himself to ease the tension by sporting a ridiculous looking mustache during the pre-season. That started a funky facial hair tradition, which has been picked up by other teammates over the years.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at the many faces of Aaron Rodgers…

What’s Your Favorite Style?
Do you have a favorite type of beard or mustache on Aaron Rodgers? Do you prefer a clean-shaven look? Have any new ideas for another style he should try out?
This year he seems to be going with the Simple Scruff. Perhaps his girlfriend and rumored fiance, Destiny Newton, isn’t a fan of all those whiskers.
