We live in an age where it's nearly impossible to say or do something that goes unnoticed. That's true in everyday life, and even more so when it comes to televised sports.

We've previously seen Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers step to the line of scrimmage and pay homage to Smokin' Jay Cutler. And in Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Cowboys, Rodgers gave us this season's "Omaha" when field microphones caught him yelling, "NEW YORK BOZO!" before the snap.

So what does "NEW YORK BOZO" mean? Rodgers was asked about it on Monday.

"Our guys don't know what that means," a smiling Rodgers admitted. "Nobody knew what that meant."

So there you go.

If nothing else, Rodgers' explanation was much easier to understand than the officials' decision to overturn Dez Bryant's fourth-quarter catch (which, conveniently, we talked about below).
