    Appleton - Aaron Rodgers might have been playing the hot corner in a charity softball tournament this evening, but he didn't want to take any hard shots from the media.

    "Keep it to softball, guys," Rodgers said as he approached a small group of media members before taking on the Appleton division of the Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin at Fox Cities Stadium.

    In his first public appearance since Fan Fest in March, Rodgers said he was told by the Packers not to talk about football-related matters until Wednesday's availability during off-season practices. He stuck to that when asked direct questions about the two biggest lingering questions related to Rodgers:

    What did he think about the comments made by Brett Favre since his retirement?

    "Wednesday," said Rodgers, who was wearing a gold headband to hold back his hair, which has not been cut and goes down to the back of his jersey (somebody alert the Kansas City Chiefs).

    What did he think about the Packers drafting two quarterbacks, including Brian Brohm in the second round?


    Now that we've got that settled, Rodgers was joined by teammates Ruvell Martin, Vernand Morency, Tyrone Culver, Nick Collins, Mark Tauscher, Johnny Quinn, John Kuhn, Greg Jennings, Mason Crosby and Alfred Malone.

    Martin has been the point man on a series of softball games aimed at raising money for the community programs of the firefighter's union.

    "It's always good to be able to get out and see the fans during the offseason; they haven't seen our faces in a while," Martin siad. "It's a good cause, supporting the firefighters. It's been something that has been a part of the Packers' organization for, I think, close to 30 years. It's not something too many people know about, but it's something we have a lot of fun with."

    Rodgers is schedule to talk on Wednesday but will be unavailable on Wednesday since that is the first day he could talk but he will be too busy because he backed everything off until Wednesday and now there's not enough time to do anything at all.

    That bumps it to Thursday which would be fine but you never talk on thursday with Friday right behind thursday. Friday would be the perfect day except for the fact it preceeds the weekend so you never say things on friday and let what you say get all discombobblated the entire weekend.

    That brings us to monday which is no good because everybody is in a bad mood because it's Monday and people are hung over and pissed.

    So I predict AR will finally speak next tuesday cause I can't think of a freaking thing that would get in the way of such important matters.

    Being that it's important and all.
