Danica Patrick's opening monologue at the ESPYs went for some easy jokes

Retired racecar driver Danica Patrick, who was previously a fan of the Bears and is now the current girlfriend of Rodgers, officially announced a change in her National Football League fandom on the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday night.

She also revealed whether her man shares her passion for driving, as first reported by E! Though the couple confirmed their relationship in January, they first met at the ESPY awards in 2012.


After participating in last weekend's American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, Nev., the Packers quarterback gave a social media shout-out to the competitors, as well as Patrick, 36, who let him forget the scoreboard.

Danica also made a cringeworthy joke about LeBron James becoming an LA transplant thanks to his trade to the Lakers, but then made references to how he googles LA transplant to find a hair replacement doctor. Racer Danica Patrick found that out in a rather cringe-worthy way when her humor failed to bring the house down at least during one moment at the ESPYs on Wednesday while attempting to make fun of LeBron James and The King's love-hate relationship with his hairline. Every year, I leave feeling so inspired!


"He's amusing, he's very kind, he's thoughtful, he's super smart", Patrick said of Rodgers.

"Tiger Woods is back, sort of, I guess", she said. "It's going to be a great night and one full of more than a few surprises".


Kim, who made a name for herself when she won a gold medal at the 2018 South Korea Winter Olympics, took home three ESPYs, including Best Female Athlete.
