Last weekend former Wisconsin Badger and current Los Angeles Clipper Sam Dekker tweeted a photo of Green Bay Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers (sadly sans moustache) “fixing” his garbage disposal.

In case you haven’t seen it:


Naturally, the pic got a ton of likes. Wisconsinites love seeing their sports heroes bust out some blue collar life skillz. And who could blame them?

Unfortunately, it turns out that this particular situation didn’t actually call for much handyman knowhow. Rodgers explained what happened to the Wisconsin State Journal’s Jason Wilde on Thursday. Apparently Sam Dekker is just a silly millennial too busy Snapchatting selfies to discover the rudimentary solution to his garbage disposal problem.

Here’s an excerpt:

“I’ve actually fixed my own garbage disposal before. There’s incredible tutorials on YouTube,” Rodgers said. “So I did that at one point. Fixed it.

“Sam, he just got traded to L.A., I was hanging out with him Saturday. He was having some sink issues, asked for my help. He’s 23 years old. I know he’s engaged and taking the next step to being an adult, but he’s not quite there yet. So I went under the sink.

“What the tutorial told me was to test the switch first, (and then) what kind of rumble you hear or lack of rumble tells you what’s going on with the garbage disposal. So, I flipped the switch and nothing happened. (That) means two things: One, it’s completely broken and it needs to be changed out, or two, it’s not plugged in.”


“It wasn’t plugged in,” Rodgers said with a laugh. “So, that’s the picture of me holding the plug as I call him from the other room, and said, ‘Hey, idiot, it wasn’t plugged in.’

“He’s learning.”

Pro tip for all you rookie homeowners out there: always make sure the sh*t’s plugged in before bringing in outside help.

Seriously, though, great story.
