Danica Patrick Opens up About Aaron Rodgers Relationship

Aaron Rodgers has officially converted Danica Patrick into a Packers fan

But no matter how hard Patrick tries to razz her fellow athletes, she, or anyone for that matter, will never, ever come close to topping the near-criminal performance of Norm McDonald way back in the 1998 ESPYs.

The former race vehicle driver got candid about what it's like to dat the Green Bay Packers quarterback during Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! "It's time to talk about the national anthem controversy", she said, but then moved on quickly to other sports. If you stayed up late, you probably caught her.

Patrick, of course, embraced the parody role of Harding, while her real-life boyfriend and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers played Harding's husband, Jeff Gillooly.

In honor of the ESPYs airing Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, we put together the host's style evolution throughout her years hitting the award show's red carpet.

"I haven't seen a Russian this pleased with Washington since, well, two days ago", Patrick joked in her opening monologue at the awards show, accompanied by a photo of Alex Ovechkin kissing the Stanley Cup. "It is the biggest night of the year for sports. It's going to be a great night and one full of more than a few surprises".

"You got to call out the elephant in the room?"

Patrick is a three-time ESPY nominee. In 2008, she was nominated for Best Moment and Best Female Athlete after she became the only woman to win an IndyCar series event by coming in first at the Indy Japan 300.

Fans and professional critics alike are keeping an eye on the best-dressed and worst-dressed among the arrivals at the awards show.
