Aaron Rodgers is more than the Green Bay Packers quarterback. He is also a massive sports fan. So much so, he was in attendance for a big Ncaa Tournament game on Friday night. While he was cheering on Wisconsin, he is not actually known to be a big fan of the Badgers. At the end of the night, though, he was likely disappointed with the final score of the Sweet Sixteen contest.

Spectator views

Rodgers had to travel quite the distance to watch Wisconsin play on Friday -- the team's game was at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Badgers faced the Florida Gators in a late night contest that didn't begin until after 10 PM and didn't end until well after midnight local time.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback just seemed pumped to be at an NCAA Tournament game at all, though, never mind the time.

Wearing a Milwaukee Bucks hat, Rodgers received the thrill of the game when Zak Showalter hit a game-tying three-pointer to send the game to overtime. As caught on the television broadcast, the Wisconsin guard then looked in the quarterback's direction and gave his trademark "championship belt" celebration. One of the highlights of the NCAA Tournament wasn't just a thrill for the players, but for the Green Bay Packer as well.

Less celebratory mood

Rodgers was probably smiling a little bit less when the game reached its dramatic conclusion. Chris Chiozza hit a game-winning shot at the buzzer in overtime to the shock and delirium of nearly everyone in the crowd.

Just like that, Wisconsin's run through the NCAA Tournament met a premature demise.

The Green Bay legend may have issues bigger than the NCAA Tournament, though. For starters, Wisconsin isn't even his favorite college team - California is, based on where he went to college. The Golden Bears just lost their coach, Cuonzo Martin, to the Mizzou job and will turn to a relative unknown to lead the team going forward. Besides, Rodgers has an NFL season and an NFC Championship Game defeat at the hands of the Super Bowl runner-ups to avenge.
