When Ryan Braun was notified of the NL MVP results, he immediately proceeded to call his mother, his agent, and then Green Bay Packers quarterback and fellow Cali-native Aaron Rodgers, who Braun calls his “best athlete friend.” His message to the leader of the 11-0 Packers was clear: your turn. Rodgers, forever a Wisconsin legend thanks to his Super Bowl XLV MVP performance, has the inside track for the MVP award this season and was happy for his pal. “I’m proud of him,” Rodgers said in an ESPN interview, “he had an incredible season.” Rodgers was also thankful to play in front of the best fans around. “It’s fun to know that he’s going to be in Milwaukee for a long time,” he said. “I’m hopefully going to be here for a long time, and we appreciate the opportunity to play in Wisconsin for sports teams and their fans who really care about their players.” Braun may now have the award, but Rodgers has the title – something Braun craves. “[Rodgers has] accomplished far more in his sport than I have in mine,” stated Braun, “it inspires me to try to get better and ultimately to win a championship of my own for the Milwaukee Brewers.” One day, Milwaukee. One day.

 

Two Wisconsin legends. Asking who's cooler is like asking which of your children you love the most.

This looks good now. . Manny Ramirez was something but Ryan Braun is right in the prime of his career getting caught. And to come off an MVP season and have this cloud it is unbelievable. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to Ryan Braun and what kind of precedent the MLB sets in this kind of case. What a blow to a the MLB after so much success with their drug program. Who knows who else is out there on the juice. Also, you think you could check out my blog because I’d love to hear what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/braun-over-brains-mvp/

Was Rodgers ever asked to comment after the allegation of Braun failing a drug test? If so, I wonder what he said.
