Aaron Rodgers recruits a new Packers fan: the Dalai Lama

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers ran into some tough luck last season, so it makes sense that, during the offseason, the star quarterback would turn to some higher power for help.

On his visit to India with girlfriend and former race car driver Danica Patrick, working with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help people in need receive hearing aids, Rodgers visited the Dalai Lama – and, according to a photo posted on His Holiness's Facebook and Instagram, came offering the famed spiritual figure gifts of Green Bay Packers gear.

Now, does this mean the Dalai Lama is now a Packers fan? Well, back in 2009, the Tibetan spiritual leader donned a Patriots hat during a visit to New England ... but maybe he's sick and tired of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick by now, too.

Just nobody tell the Dalai Lama about the wait for Packers season tickets.
