Playing Defense

More Aaron Rodgers-Kevin Lanflisi Tweets Uncovered As Packers Square Off Against 49ers

It’s no surprise Packers QB Aaron (“I really, really like women”) Rodgers made a point of coming out publicly as emphatically “not gay” last Tuesday, six days before facing off against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL playoffs at frigid Lambeau field in Wisconsin. He needs every ounce of focus to fend off the 49ers defense, which features a bruising pass rush.

But that has not stopped the relentless gossip site, The Fame Driven, from continuing its assault on the notion of Rodgers’ heterosexuality. Last week, the site posted a series of tweets to Rodgers from the Twitter account of Kevin Lanflisi, his long-time “roommate” and personal assistant.

In a follow-up post, it unveils a video of Rodgers talking affectionately of Lanflisi and the two at a banquet where Rodgers receives his MVP award:

It also shows off a batch of newly discovered tweets that portray a kind of familiarity between the two that falls–at least in the 140 word world–in that gray area somewhere between bromance and love affair.

 

 

This is the scruffed Lanflisi tweeting from Chico, California, the conservative California town where Rodgers grew up and where his religious conservative family still resides. The “champ” had just led the team to Super Bowl victory.

Apparently, the Berkeley educated Rodgers was Lanflisi’s date at a Bieber concert. We expected more…

… but he snared the best tix in the house. Hence, the close up.

No Coronas, but a picture says a thousand words.
