Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is keeping a watchful on on his close friend, Ryan Braun, and the Milwaukee Brewers as they try to clinch the National League Central Division title and make the baseball playoffs.

But even though he has experience in these matters, having won a Super Bowl in February, Rodgers is just an interested spectator when it comes to watching the Brewers, including outfielder Nyjer Morgan, whose alter ego, Tony Plush, has created a huge stir in Milwaukee.

"I don't think they need any of my advice," Rodgers said Sunday. "But Ryan and I are good buddies. It was fun to give him a text the other day. We're always texting back and forth and he kind of makes fun of my athleticism, so when he had that inside-the-park home run that should have been (until) he tripped (going) around third, it was good to give him a little razzing there. But they're doing a great job. It's been fun to make a couple of games when I had the opportunity. It's a great locker room. They really get along. T-Plush and the boys are always having a lot of fun over there. It's fun to watch them. I'm excited about their run."
