Someday, maybe a decade from now, we'll see a feature-length film about Aaron Rodgers's summer of 2021. It'll open with the quarterback's engagement to actress Shailene Woodley. The second act will be a Hangover-esque account of the couple's Hawaii vacation with Miles Teller, where the actor says two guys jumped them in a bathroom. The finale? A high-stakes, office-room climax where the Green Bay Packers finally convince Rodgers not to become the permanent host of Jeopardy! and give up on his quasi-boycott of the team.

This movie—written, produced, and directed by Aaron Rodgers—will be called PETTY: The Brief, Wondrous Offseason of a Disgraced King.

The last shot of PETTY? What we saw on Tuesday morning: Rodgers showing up to training camp for the first time this offseason. He's in a fit that is somehow equal parts cheeky, cool as hell, a little weird, and very nerd. Our man is wearing a giant pair of shades, shorts, and a $27 T-Shirt that's a mashup of The Office and NBA Jam, with Kevin Malone squaring off in a fictional battle against his own about-to-be-spilled chili. Check out the face of a man who's lived several lifetimes since he was bounced in last year's NFC Championship:

What do you do when you single-handedly tool with sports media about your probably-maybe-definitely-not-really-a-holdout for six months? Well, you make like Billy Madison, put on a big backpack, and gleefully show up to training camp looking like you're at your first day of school. This is neither a good or a bad thing. It's just Aaron Rodgers. So make like Rodgers, pour yourself four fingers of tequila, and pick up the shirt for the one, shining moment when you want to make your cheeky power move via Office shirt.
