The Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors faced off in a crucial Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday night with the series knotted up at two games apiece. The Bucks performed incredibly well in the first season for the team’s new stadium, and the recent playoff games there have brought out local stars in full force. In Thursday night’s game between the two teams, two fellow sportsmen joined the festivities at Fiserv Forum – the Green Bay Packers’ legendary quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his teammate offensive lineman David Bakhtiari.
Both Bakhtiari and Rodgers had been previously sighted at a Bucks playoff game, with the hulking lineman slamming down two beers in swift succession. On Thursday night, Bakhtiari once again chugged two beers when he was shown on the big screen, then the camera shifted over to Rodgers. Take a look:

As you can see, though Rodgers is easily a Hall of Famer and a brilliant offensive tactician, but when it comes to quickly drinking adult beverages, he leaves something to be desired.
Bakhtiari, for his part, picked up the slack in the “drinking competition” by chugging a third beer once the camera panned back to him. Legendary.
If the beer-swilling exploits of two of Green Bay’s finest are any indication, the Bucks should be able to pull this game out at home against an extremely tough Raptors team. We know Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer is not a fan of one particular Raptors fan’s exploits, but perhaps he’ll be more forgiving of a fan of his own team.
