SF Giants jumbotron divorcee says he’s ‘most eligible bachelor’

A man whose pal celebrated his divorce with a jumbotron message at a San Francisco Giants game has dubbed himself “the most eligible bachelor in McCovey Cove now.”

“It’s only a matter of time until I’m running the bases again,” Max Blue quipped to SFGate Friday.

Blue and his friend, Ryan Faraola, who paid for the message, were both shocked when it went viral last week.

“Happy divorce Max. Back in the game!” The sign on the jumbotron read Wednesday.

Blue is an arts writer and a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute. A reporter for SFGate said she knew Blue’s soon to be ex-wife and that the ex was “cool” with publishing an interview with Max.

Blue, a regular attendee of Giants games, said he was astonished by the raucous cheering in his favor in the ballpark, which included a standing ovation from fans.

For the first time since all the rumors about his frustration with the Green Bay Packers surfaced, Aaron Rodgers revealed why he’s currently unhappy with the franchise that drafted him in 2005.

Rodgers was on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Monday night for Kenny Mayne’s final show. During his interview with Mayne, the three-time MVP discussed his standoff with the Packers.

Contrary to popular belief, Rodgers said that his frustration with the Packers is not about the front office’s decision to draft Jordan Love last year. Instead, his problem is with the way certain people inside the organization have handled things.

“With my situation, look it’s never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan,” Rodgers told Mayne, via ESPN. “I love Jordan; he’s a great kid. [We’ve had] a lot of fun to work together. Love the coaching

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Najee Harris with the 24th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. It’s rare for running backs to go in the first round, but the AFC North franchise is clearly very high on the former Alabama Crimson Tide standout.

Harris is already giving the Steelers reasons to be optimistic about the draft pick, too.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he’s been very impressed with what he’s seen from Harris so far in rookie minicamp.

“He is a sharp guy,” Tomlin said of Harris, via Brooke Pryor of ESPN. “He is a football guy. You can tell he is passionate about football. He can articulate the game very well, so it’s a lot to be excited about.

“It is more noticeable simply because there’s not a lot of people to work with. He’s getting an opportunity to
