Fear the dear

During Friday night's Celtics-Bucks playoff game in Milwaukee it was announced that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had become a minority owner of the Bucks.  He and his girlfriend, Danica Patrick, were courtside for the Bucks Game 3 win.

 Via ESPN:

He was announced Friday as a limited partner in the Bucks ownership group during the team's playoff game against the Celtics at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Rodgers was introduced during the game, where he was seated courtside with girlfriend Danica Patrick and Bucks co-owner Wes Edens.

According to the Bucks, Rodgers is the only active NFL player to have an ownership stake in an NBA team.

"I have proudly called Wisconsin my home for the past 13 years, and I am thankful for the friendships and the opportunities I have been given to live and play here," Rodgers in a statement released by the Bucks. "I am excited and honored to deepen my connection to the region by joining Wes Edens, Marc Lasry, Jamie Dinan, Mike Fascitelli and the ownership group of the Milwaukee Bucks. As a huge fan of the NBA and the sport of basketball, this is a dream come true for me, and I look forward to furthering my affinity for Wisconsin sports as a minority owner in a team I love and support."

Danica looked thrilled by the news and the prospect of spending more time in Milwaukee. 

The Bucks won the game in a blowout over the Celtics 116-92.  It looks like Aaron buying a part of the team is already paying off.
