Last night, I got to attend a charity event during which Aaron Rodgers spoke and answered pre-submitted questions. His first question was “Who is the strongest leader you’ve ever known.”
His answer, without hesitation: Charles Woodson.
He talked for about five minutes about Charles and why he admired him, and it all clearly circled around Charles’s immense confidence. The way he addressed the press, the way he talked with his coaches, and the way he addressed his teammates all instantly commanded respect. It was great to hear such great things about such a great Michigan man from such a revered figure!
Unfortunately, later in the evening came “What was the greatest play you were ever a part of?” I immediately buried my face in my hand because I knew what was coming. Sure enough, “2015 in Deteoit.” The crowd roars. I groan.
