The Packers have ventured north to Canada for tonight’s preseason game against the Raiders in Winnipeg, and Aaron Rodgers is ready for it.
Behold, the Canadian tuxedo as worn by the highest paid player in the NFL:
The jacket. The aviators. The ‘stache. The bolo tie.
Of course, the internet had reactions.

Looks like Sasha Baron Cohen playing Aaron Rodgers.— Jonathan Smith (@DFF_sjonathan02) August 22, 2019
Rodgers is expected to play tonight for the first time this postseason, after sitting out the Packers’ first two games with back tightness.
Uh oh, Patrick Chung
A Colbert-esque wag of the finger to Patrick Chung, who was indicted on a felony cocaine possession charge on August 8th.
According to the Laconia Daily Sun, the three-time Super Bowl champion avoided arrest but received a court summons after police found cocaine in his Meredith, New Hampshire home. Sources say that the investigation and indictment occurred after a security system breach gave police cause to enter the lakeside home.

Police show up to check on the home, have probable cause to enter the home, and ultimately end up finding cocaine, leading to the investigation and indictment.
It’s unclear whether Chung was at the home at the time of the incident.
Chung is scheduled to be arraigned at the Belknap Superior Court next Wednesday.

The USWNT legend was in attendance at the Eagles’ practice on Tuesday, after which she joined the boys on the field and kicked this absolutely mind blowing 55 yard field goal:
That right foot, though. So good.
