It seems there's no ballin' prior to balling for Aaron Rodgers.
Through 13 games this season, the Green Bay Packers quarterback has thrown for 3,652 yards and 35 touchdowns, all without the benefit of pre-game sex. That's according to girlfriend Olivia Munn, who recently sat down for a series of candid "Plead the Fifth" questions on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.
Asked by host Andy Cohen whether she and Rodgers get busy before games, the Newsroom actress and former Daily Show correspondent put to bed any rumors that she's the reason for the exceptional season her boyfriend is having.
"Well, I will say that all the good luck charms are on the field and in the stands, so it has nothing to do with me," she says. "And, uh, no we don't," she said of pre-kickoff coitus. "Not on game day. There's not a rule, but it just doesn't happen because there's other things to focus on."
That makes sense. It takes a while to suit up and get pumped for a game, and those pep talks from coaches can go on forever. But what about afterward? Surely Munn rewards Rodgers for especially strong performances. "Depends on how late the game is," said Munn. "It just doesn't happen usually because there's a lot to do. But usually yes. I try to have sex as much as I can," she said.
If Munn was answering honestly, there might be a connection between celibacy and the ability to read defenses and execute in the red zone. That would mean NFL QBs would have to choose between their desire to win and their desire to score, and we all know how that would turn out. The Lombardi Trophy ain't that nice.
