The Jessica Alba saga continues for Sauce Gardner
If Sauce Gardner didn’t know Jessica Alba before, he sure does now. All he needs to do is take a peek down at his cleats, thanks to artist Mike Jordan who dropped off a pair of custom Nike Vapor Spikes at 1 Jets Drive earlier this week.
Gardner ran into the Fantastic Four actor at a New York Knicks game earlier this month accompanied by Aaron Rodgers, but the young New York Jets star didn’t know who she was, much to the amusement and astonishment of his veteran quarterback.
Gardner labeled Rodgers his “chaperone”, which Rodgers seemed to find hilarious, responding in a tweet, “you are funny @iamSauceGardner, glad to be helping you meet new people”.
Chaperone??? Elder??? 🤣🤣🤣 you are funny @iamSauceGardner , glad to be helping you meet new people 💪🏼 # https://t.co/7Mx2zgjIVV

Gardner later spoke to the media about not knowing the very famous actor, and Jessica Alba took it in stride, revealing a Sauce quote that is about as Sauce as you’re going to get.
Lol -I totally see how this kid Sauce got his name, he said to my girl @ElizabethMxo “How can I get caught up when I’m the catch” 😂 . But in all honesty he was actually very polite with his elder @AaronRodgers12 and everyone else in the room. It was nice meeting you…

The cleats highlight two of Alba’s most famous roles with the 2003 film Honey depicted on one side and Fantastic Four‘s Storm on the other. The artist Mike Jordan told TMZ that he wanted to commemorate the very funny situation.
“I wanted to do something fun,” Jordan said of the spikes. “I hope Jessica likes them, too.”
In other film-related news, Gardner recently released a documentary on his YouTube channel titled The Secret Ingredient, which follows Gardner as he returns to his childhood home in Detroit, Michigan. Gardner reflects on his humble upbringing and also visits his former high school to give words of wisdom to the young football players who are hoping to follow in his footsteps.
