Good morning, gang!   Davey Mac here back with another Sports Report for ya!   All kinds of stuff happened in the World of Sports yesterday and we’ve got you covered!   But first!

The New York Jets’ brand new star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, spoke to the media for a little bit yesterday.   And…sadly…the topic of MTV’s Jersey Shore popped up.

While Rodgers told reporters that he really likes New Jersey…he admits that before he became a member of Gang Green…he associated the state with the notorious MTV reality show Jersey Shore.   Thankfully…Rodgers also has learned that Jersey Shore “is not a proper representation of this great state.”

Hey, I don’t think you can hold this against Rodgers.   But, as a proud New Jerseyan, it does make me think…how many other people outside of the Garden State think Jersey Shore is a straight-up documentary on this area?   I mean…Snooki ain’t exactly a state Senator!

So if Aaron Rodgers wants to learn more about the great state of New Jersey…gimme a call!   I’ll take you to Six Flags Great Adventure…the pool halls in Hoboken…the casino in Atlantic City…the beautiful Monmouth Park racetrack…and all of the great parks, beaches, and pubs that this state has to offer!   Go Jersey!   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!
