Who better to fix a garbage disposal than two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers? (PHOTO: Sam Dekker Twitter)

Aaron Rodgers: MVP quarterback and A-grade plumber

It's Sunday on Labor Day weekend, your kitchen sink is broken, all the plumbers in town have closed up for the long holiday weekend and you certainly aren't washing the dishes in the shower. What do you do?

Call your friendly neighborhood two-time NFL MVP, obviously.

At least, that's what former Wisconsin Badgers basketball star and current Los Angeles Clippers forward Sam Dekker did this past weekend, dealing with a busted kitchen sink by calling 1-800-AAROD12 and summoning Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for an impressive home-maintenance Hail Mary.

In fairness to Dekker, Rodgers has definitely looked the part of some kind of mechanic lately, thanks to his annually glorious preseason mustache, so we can see why he'd go to him in a time of need. And, considering his Twitter shout-out, Rodgers committed to the part and indeed fixed the sink – or, to be more specific, the garbage disposal, according to a tweet from ESPN college football reporter and Dekker's fiancé Olivia Harlan.

According to Rodgers, the problem was simple: The garbage disposal wasn't plugged in. You still better give him a good Yelp review, Sam! And hey, when Rodgers eventually retires – hopefully a very, very, very long time from now, with many, many Super Bowl rings – if he's not into the broadcasting booth, he could have a solid second career as a plumber.

So what do you want Aaron to fix around your house? Got a busted water heater that's making a funny sound? A sink that doesn't have hot water? A washing machine that needs replacing? Personally, my request would be that Aaron Rodgers fix his broken relationship with his family – obviously the only logical reason for his struggles early last season and for the Packers losing in the NFC Wild Card game.
