Just when I thought it was impossible to love this guy even more, he relays his UFO sighting story on Pete Holmes’ “You Made it Weird” podcast (as transcribed on PhillyVoice):
“It looks like commercial jets kinda flying – or maybe it’s a military jet – and they’re trying to figure out what’s coming through the clouds and you see like a fiery movement of cloud, I guess, coming through the sky. Then the plane eventually runs into the spaceship, which is coming into orbit. It was like … a large, orange, left-to-right moving object.”
Rodgers says the UFO mysteriously vanished from sight and then produced about four loud sounds usually heard from fighter jets.
“In typical fashion,” Rodgers says, “there was no mention of it the next day.”
The quarterback notes that a nearby nuclear plant and frequent air traffic in the vicinity – common themes in UFO sightings – could be behind the episode. But eleven years later, he’d still like “UFOlogists” to look into it, if possible.
Rodgers is a superstar QB, handsome man, he’s with Olivia Munn, and he’s seeing UFOs. Can his life get any cooler?
