Even off-field at the Oscars, Aaron Rodgers burns the Bears

Usually when Aaron Rodgers hurts the Bears on a Sunday, he's doing it on a football field while wearing pads and a helmet.

But the Packers' quarterback managed to inflict some damage last night at the Academy Awards, on the red carpet in a tuxedo and with only a couple subtle retweets.

Rodgers attended the Oscars with actress girlfriend Olivia Munn, who was one of the presenters. The celebrity couple color-coordinated their outfits, with Rodgers wearing a navy tux that complemented Munn's burnt-orange dress (or so we're told; US Weekly has more details on the actual clothes).

Anyway, whoever runs the Bears' official Twitter account decided to take the opportunity to poke fun at Rodgers' and Munn's stylish harmonizing.

Rodgers is 12-4 in his career against Chicago with 35 touchdowns to just nine interceptions. That dominance was well-known by former Packers tight end Tom Crabtree, a good friend and frequent sparring partner of Rodgers' on Twitter, who made sure the Bears' tweet did not go unpunished.

The two-time MVP made a little red-carpet mischief, too, appearing in the background of an E! TV interview with Common. The stunt continued Rodgers' long, rich history of photobombing, and Common, a Chicago native and Bears fan, tweeted his mock displeasure at the act.

And, as only the immortally smug quarterback can, Rodgers simply retweeted, wordlessly affirming both messages, presumably with a self-satisfied smirk.
