Aaron Rodgers had an intense experience when encountering one of his biggest fears this summer. The Green Bay Packers quarterback will be a part of “Shark Week” on Discovery despite having a fear of sharks.
Rodgers shared a story about swimming with sharks to get over his fear.
“So this [shark], he literally came up to me—spoiler alert—I put my hand on his head. I pushed him down to the right. Nicely, gently. But I was terrified. Honestly, I was blacked out. It just came up to me and all I was thinking was, Oh my god it’s actually happening. What do I do? Okay, boom. I just moved his head down to the right. But it was fun. I have a different appreciation for sharks now. I’m okay with ‘em.”
Rodgers conquered his fear by touching a shark and blacking out. What’s your excuse for avoiding house spiders?
