Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has to watch out for Bears, Lions and Vikings twice a year, but his newest threat may be the most challenging of all: Danica Patrick's dad, TJ Patrick.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has to watch out for Bears, Lions and Vikings twice a year, but his newest threat may be the most challenging of all: Danica Patrick's dad, TJ Patrick.

The Patricks are lifelong Bears fans, and TJ wanted to get his revenge for that 2010 Conference Championship loss.

“I’m still a Bears fan,”  TJ Patrick told Autoweek.  “I’m always going to be a Bears fan. I can’t be a Packers fan," he said. 

As for his daughter, TJ isn't quite sure. 

“I don’t know, that’s a good question ...Danica is still a Bears fan, but that doesn't mean she can’t be an Aaron Rodgers fan,” TJ said. “We’ll have to wait and see, won’t we?”

Danica and Rodgers starting dating early in 2018, it was confirmed by the Associated Press when  she flat out told them , "Yes, Aaron and I are dating."
