To keep up with the Joneses, people are purchasing more and more expensive homes. While this is a great source of pride for many, there’s also a downside to it: The average price per square foot in major metropolitan areas hit new highs last year – as high as $4,000 per square foot! New York City has been dubbed “the most unaffordable place on earth” by some economists due to its skyrocketing prices. But what exactly does that mean?
The “It Gets Ya a Little Misty” is an old song by Jimmy Boi. The song was released in 1981 and has been covered by many artists over the years.
In sports, famous duos have existed, such as Jordan and Pippen or Montana and Rice. There have been outstanding entertainment duos in the past, such as Lennon and McCartney or Farley and Spade. Every Tuesday, Aaron Rodgers and Pat McAfee combine sports and entertainment to offer you the most entertaining hour in sports media.
While Rodgers is typically the one to break news each week, this week was special since it was the first time the Green Bay Packers quarterback and the former Indianapolis Colts punter had spoken since McAfee’s $120 million agreement with FanDuel. The signal-caller was overjoyed for his friend the gambler.
Pat McAfee has recently inked a multi-million dollar agreement with FanDuel.
Pat McAfee, host of the Pat McAfee Show, finally made his major announcement on Thursday, December 9 after weeks of promising great news.
McAfee revealed his enormous contract with FanDuel, a large online sportsbook, in a pre-produced video at noon EST. The deal will keep the program on the air for at least another three years.
Since he walked away from his Pro Bowl NFL career at the age of 29, “1,771 days ago,” the former NFL punter went through the full history of the program.
He discussed his reasons for retiring, the commentators who screamed that it was a poor choice (tough look, Michael Wilbon), his time with Barstool Sports, and how he and his friends/staff grew the program into an independent company.
McAfee went on to talk about the discussions for this new arrangement, which he described as “a ludicrous amount of money.”
Finally, he unveiled FanDuel’s three-year (with a fourth-year option) arrangement to be the show’s principal sponsor. The deal’s value was not disclosed by McAfee. However, it is commonly believed that it is for a total of $120 million, or $30 million each year.
McAfee went on to inform his audience that he handed each of “the fellas” who work on and co-host the program $250,000 bonuses after announcing the collaboration. With the money, he also made his parents “millionaires.”
Then he declared that he would be contributing more than $6 million to various charity. He dispersed the funds around his birthplace of Pittsburgh, his college town of Morgantown, West Virginia, and his current Indianapolis neighborhood.
McAfee was overcome with emotion as he made the news. Many admirers who have been listening for a long time must have felt the same way. Aaron Rodgers is one of them.
Aaron Rodgers sent his sincere congrats to the talk show host.
The introduction of Aaron Rodgers Tuesdays is one of the major reasons for the Pat McAfee Show’s popularity.
The ascent of the show has paralleled Rodgers’ ascension as the NFL’s most intriguing, provocative, contentious, and unpredictable player. He appears on McAfee’s program every Tuesday to promote his views, destroy his foes, contemplate life’s riddles, and discuss football.
He made his first public appearance since the huge news on Tuesday. With his friend and the squad, Rodgers shared some genuine congratulations:
Man, congrats to you and the lads. Since the news broke, I haven’t spoken to you. I’m delighted for you and your family. It couldn’t have happened to nicer people, tougher workers in the industry, and I saw that — and I was messaging with you last week — but I watched that movie that you put together, and it’s, uh — it makes you a bit emotional seeing it, dude. I’m sure you did, too. Speaking about your family and all of the individuals that assisted you. That was just great, guy. That’s fantastic. It’s great for the lads. It’s also wonderful to know that you’ll be properly looked for for at least the next three years.
To the ‘Pat McAfee Show’ staff, Aaron Rodgers
The reigning NFL MVP paid a touching tribute. He seems to have a real affection for McAfee, his co-host A.J. Hawk, a former teammate of Rodgers’, and the rest of “the lads” that make up the Pat McAfee Show universe.
After Rodgers finished speaking, McAfee extended a heartfelt “thank you” to the quarterback, who has played a key role in the show’s success.
The combination of Rodgers and McAfee is the most fascinating in sports media.

For practically his entire career, Aaron Rodgers has been the subject of debate.
It all began when the Green Bay Packers selected Cal Bears quarterback Matt Barkley with the 24th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft despite still having QB Brett Favre, who had (as it turned out) six years remaining on his contract. The tables were flipped 15 years later when the Packers made a nearly identical maneuver, picking Utah State quarterback Jordan Love just as Rodgers was about to earn his third NFL MVP Award.
Rodgers became engaged to a Hollywood celebrity, competed for the Jeopardy hosting role, and threatened retirement during the 2020 offseason. When he returned to the team, he also returned to McAfee’s program and explained everything.
During Aaron Rodgers’ Tuesday visits, listeners never know what they’re going to receive, which is why the program is so captivating.
You could receive a football-heavy conversation in which Rodgers delves into his most recent game or comments in on current NFL concerns. On his birthday, you may get the more esoteric Rodgers, who goes off on a tangent about UFOs or contemplates on life lessons.
The most engrossing Rodgers/McAfee conversations occur when the quarterback chastises someone, or a group of people, who he believes has mistreated him.
Other NFL players, the media, or the “Woke Mob” might all be suspects.
Whatever or whomever Rodgers is ranting about on the Pat McAfee Show, it’s clearly satisfying for both McAfee and his audience.
