To put it simply, Justin Timberlake is the man. Since bursting onto the scene over a decade ago with N’Sync, Timberlake has distinguished himself as one of the top singing and acting talents in the world. He has successfully transitioned from teen idol to respected artist. He’s dating Stuff Magazine’s “Sexiest Woman” on the planet, Jessica Biel. These are all good and well, but, in our book, the most impressive thing about Timberlake is that he is a Packers fan.
Timberlake and Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers have formed a close friendship. In an interview from Dallas before last year’s Super Bowl, Timberlake said, “Aaron’s my buddy. He faced a lot. He had big shoes to fill following behind Brett [Favre]. I think he’s done it with style and class and he's a great guy." In the same interview, Timberlake picked the Packers to beat the Steelers. Extremely confident the Packers would get the victory, Timberlake decided to put some BIG money on the contest.
Timberlake doesn’t just follow the Packers when they make it to the big game. He was spotted tailgating with Biel and friends in the Lambeau Field parking lot before heading to the sidelines to watch a 2007 matchup with the Bears.
Congratulations, Justin, you can put Big Cheese right there at the top of your awards list (sorry Grammys and Emmys).
