While he won't spend time with his own family, Aaron Rodgers is head over heels for his new girlfriend, Danica Patrick.

News of the two lovebirds broke in early January and made waves through the sports world in the wake of Rodgers' messy relationship with actress Olivia Munn. To make matters more interesting, Patrick is a life-long Chicago Bears fan.

But as Patrick prepares for one of her final NASCAR races at this Sunday's Daytona 500, Rodgers will be there to support her.

And you thought Peyton Manning driving the pace car would be the biggest NFL story around Daytona International Speedway.

While most are hip to the news already, Patrick seems genuinely excited for Rodgers to be attending. That means a lot coming from someone who's already under a ton of pressure as it is.

Maybe this is good for Rodgers. After an injury-plagued 2017 season, he and the Packers are looking to get back into the postseason. Let's just hope he can finally have himself a truly happy year all around-- this weekend could make for an excellent start.
