Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Breaks Scott Kelby’s Monopod

“Hey Aaron Rodgers, you owe me $250!” That’s what Photoshop guru and photographer Scott Kelby was saying — with tongue planted firmly in cheek — after the Green Bay Packers quarterback crashed into Kelby on the sidelines of Sunday’s NFC Championship game and broke his Gitzo monopod.

And then I see it—-the bottom half of my monopod is gone!! Ripped off at the stem. So I’m right in front of Rodgers, and I yell, “Hey…..Rodgers….you broke my monopod!” And he looks at me, and I guess he sees my Bears earmuffs, and says “Too bad, Bears fan!” And I said “Hey, you’re buying me a new Monopod!” And he looks at me says, “Yeah, right.” and I’m all “Yeah, we’ll just see pretty boy.” (from Scott Kelby’s Photoshop Insider.)

While the incident with Rodgers did happen — the Packers QB was sprinting for the end zone in the first quarter when he slid into Kelby on the sidelines — the above conversation is, of course, fictitious. Though’s Kelby’s monopod snapped in half, his more expensive gear — Nikkor 400mm f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8, and Nikon D3 — got muddied but survived.
