A few of the Green Bay Packers players are in midseason form, so to speak, and they showed that during Thursday's Bucks-Raptors playoff game at Fiserv Forum.
Bakhtiari then pointed from his front-row seat across the court to Rodgers, who quickly accepted the challenge. And a lot of practicing chugging beer beforehand. Then, conceding defeat, the former NFL MVP lowered the beer from his face and shook his head 'no'.
He looked up, grabbed his beer, lifted it as a "cheers" and then started chugging.
Realizing he couldn't match his 311-pound teammate's pace, Rodgers put one finger in the air to buy more time for himself.
Further salt was added to Rodgers's wound over the course of the evening.
First, Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari poured two beers right down his gullet like water. With the cameras falling on a fan wearing a replica shirt of his, the Packers player was drawn into another contest.
Bakhtiari, in proud offensive lineman form, downed his brew like it was a shot and called out Rodgers out as he sat next to Mallory Edens, the daughter of Bucks owner Wes Edens.
