Majority were easy jokes and low-hanging fruit (Jose Altuve's height, Alex Ovechkin being a Russian in Washington, Odell Beckham's hair, LeBron James' hair, etc.) but a few of them were solid. Patrick, a lifelong Chicago Bears fan, recently said Rodgers convinced her to switch to the cheesehead side.
The 36-year-old former NASCAR star also hopes she'll make us laugh and cry: "There are the triumphant moments that are incredible, and then there are the sad losses". "It's time to talk about the elephant in the room". She then revealed a picture of Fergie, who made headlines with her national anthem performance at the NBA All-Star game. Others looked uncomfortable or winced.
Move over "I, Tonya" and step into the spotlight "Me, Danica". I mean, Serena [Williams] didn't win Wimbledon, but my goodness, she just had a baby and she went to the finals... One person captioned their Twitter post, "Stop it please, Danica Patrick". "Why do people keep talking about this guy when he isn't winning?"
Host Danica Patrick also poked fun at some of Cleveland's own in her opening monologue. She played dual roles of herself and her alcohol-swilling mother.

As a mock-horrified Patrick stood by, the youngster cracked age-inappropriate jokes.
