Aaron Rodgers is traded to Canada and gets a Rush t-shirt on TSN's Cabbie Presents

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a guest on TSN Sportcentre's Cabbie Presents last week. Comedian and Canadian sports personality Cabral Richards (aka "Cabbie") spoke with Rodgers about his spectacular football career, complete with a few comedic jibes - including a fictional "Breaking News" bit where Rodgers gets "traded to Canada" for Michael Buble, Shawn Mendes, Jonathan Toews and a comedian to be named later. After becoming an official Canadian, Cabbie then presents Rodgers with a Rush t-shirt as seen here, spurring Rodgers to bring up the movie I Love You Man - which famously included a cameo from Rush themselves. You can watch the video of the Rodgers trade to Canada below or at this location at about the 2:15 mark. The Packers will be taking on the New York Giants this coming Sunday in the opening round of the NFL playoffs. Thanks to Redditor malibumontana for the heads up.
