LOOK: Here's how Aaron Rodgers saved students from taking their final exam
All it took was a simple retweet
Aaron Rodgers -- Packers quarterback, NFL MVP, Super Bowl winner and a 33-year-old man -- is many years removed from high school. But on Friday, Rodgers did his part to help a small group of students who were looking for a reason to avoid taking a final exam.
It began with a tweet from a student. ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky spoke with the student, Peyton Meyer, who attends school in Janesville, Iowa. According to Meyer, his teacher, Laura Roberts, is a fan of Rodgers. So, that's why they asked Rodgers to get them out of their final.
"We were talking about the news in sports like we do every day, and she mentioned that a student at another school Meyer told ESPN. "We asked if we could do the same, and we know she loves Aaron, so that's why we picked him.""
All he had to was retweet this:
Rodgers saw it and responded. In the process, by the power of a quote retweet, he got the student out of the final:
I'm 99 percent sure Rodgers was being sarcastic when he said a sports lit final was "very important," because let's face it, it's sports lit -- said the man who makes a living by writing about sports.
