    Aaron Rodgers Owes Some Guy On Twitter $4.5 Million Because Ryan Braun Does Drugs


    In 2012 Ryan Braun got a 50-game PED suspension overturned because his urine sample hadn't been stored correctly. At that time, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took to Twitter to support his Wisconsin-sports buddy, writing that "MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth will set u free." Asked if he really believed Braun was clean, Rodgers said:

    As you may have heard, Ryan Braun was just suspended for the rest of the season for using performance-enhancing drugs. In other words, Aaron Rodgers now has to #ponyup his 2013 salary — $4.5 million — because that's how bets work, and if you break the Twitter law, well, people will be angry. On Twitter.

    And that's why you never stick up for your friends, kids. Or make a multi-million dollar bet online. Or take drugs.
