It’s final exam season and students try anything they can to get out of having to take them. Recently a student named Peyton Meyer of Janesville, Iowa threw a Hail Mary in an attempt to get not only him but the rest of his class out of a final exam. The class made a deal with its teacher, Laura Roberts, that if they could get a retweet from Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, they could get out of taking their final. Well Meyer sent out a tweet. And it worked. Rodgers obliged. And the sports literature class final was cancelled.
Let’s see what Twitter thought of Rodgers’ kindness.
First, Kobe Bryant.
Now, Aaron Rodgers. https://t.co/G970r2VbGy
