Rodgers blabs to Letterman; Aguilera knows the words (really)
The Day after the Super Bowl is traditionally one for confessin' and stepping right up were Aaron Rodgers and Christina Aguilera.
First, Rodgers. Monday morning, he declared that he did not sleep with the Lombardi Trophy. Monday night, he confided to David Letterman that: 1) Coach Mike McCarthy likes to repeat play calls "especially if they work" ("Not this one again"), 2) teammates don't always know which routes to run, and 3) like any good quarterback, he finds special-teams' play nerve-wracking because he has "bad memories" of lost momentum. "Every time they kick off, I've got to hold my breath." Good thing he doesn't have to see these guys...until the sold-out Lambeau Field celebration today. (Tickets $5 a head; parking is free.)
Aguilera offered video proof that she totally knows the lyrics to the national anthem and that her melisma-bordering-on-yodeling was perfect in dress rehearsal. So there, haters.
Maybe Conan had the right idea:
