Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers didn't have their best game Sunday, losing to the New York Jets 27-10.
But Rodgers has drawn praise on social media for something he did prior to the game.
The Fox broadcast showed that, during pregame warmups, Rodgers shook hands, posed for a picture and chatted with TJ Olsen, the son of former NFL tight end and current Fox color commentator Greg Olsen.
Here's video of the special interaction:
The elder Olsen said that TJ, who underwent a heart transplant last year, told him his one wish was to come to a Packers game at Lambeau Field and meet Rodgers. TJ's smile illustrates how much the gesture meant to him.
“He’s been through a lot, and his one wish, he said, I want to come to a Green Bay with you, dad, and I would love to meet Aaron Rodgers," Greg Olsen said.
"It meant a lot to TJ, it meant a lot to us. That was a really special moment for him.”
Even though the moment came prior to a game that was frustrating for Rodgers and Packers fans, it provided a good reminder that some things are bigger than sports.
