Good thing Twitter promises aren't legally binding. Because if they were, Aaron Rodgers might have lost himself $8.5 million this week.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback is friends with Ryan Braun, a fellow native Californian who has risen to sports stardom in Wisconsin. Rodgers has also adamantly defended Braun from allegations of PED use.
So when one of his followers called him out last year for putting so much faith in Braun, Rodgers responded with some serious confidence.

Rodgers must feel a little silly now, as Braun accepted a suspension on Monday for the rest of the season by Major League Baseball for violation of baseball's joint drug prevention and treatment program.
In Rodgers' defense, when he sent out that tweet Braun had recently won an appeal stemming from previous allegations. Things have certainly changed since then.
Rodgers' salary last year was $8.5 million, and he earned a $35 million signing bonus for inking a long term extension.
