Aaron Rodgers put his man bun on the line in a bet with Charles Barkley at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a sight to behold on the football field. But when he takes his helmet off, his man bun is not.
Charles Barkley has been a vocal critic of the QB’s chosen hairstyle. Now he’s got a chance to do something about it.
He just has to beat Rodgers on the links, according to USA Today.
Aaron Rodgers could lose man bun if bet with Charles Barkley goes wrong
The bet is simple. Barkley has to finish higher than Rodgers in the tournament at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Nevada. Then the sports world will be rid of the infamous Rodgers man bun.
The rub? Barkley is notoriously bad at golf while Rodgers is pretty good. Last year, the Packers QB finished in the Top 20, just has he has each of the last five years. Barkley, meanwhile, finished 76th in 2021. That was one of his better finishes.
If he loses, Barkley will have to donate $25,000 to the North Valley Community Foundation, Rodger’s charity of choice.
Fortunately for the foundation and unfortunately for those who want to see Rodgers get a haircut already, it seems almost certain the money will be donated and the man bun will remain.
Barkley definitely seems to accept that fact.
“Just because you’re too cheap to cut your hair, you can’t make it a style. Man, here’s $25. Go down to Fantastic Sam’s and get that thing cut off the back of your head. Just because you don’t cut your hair, that’s not a style,” Barkley said during a promotion event for the tournament. “But Aaron’s a much better golfer than me, but I’ll be happy to give a donation to his charity.”
