2011 was a pretty good year for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He and the Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers to win Super Bowl XLV in February. Rodgers followed that up by leading Green Bay to a 15-1 record this past regular season and putting up video game type stats that should give him a legitimate chance to win the MVP award. Rodgers had a QB rating of 122.5, 4,643 passing yards, 48 total touchdowns (3 rushing), and completed 68.3% of his passes. He surely gained more than a few new fans over the course of the year. Newly crowned Miss America Laura Kaeppeler appears to be one of Rodgers’ bigger fans.
Kaeppeler introduced herself to pageant viewers by referencing her home state’s Green Bay Packers, the NFL’s defending Super Bowl champions.
“If you’re watching, Aaron Rodgers, call me,” she said, referring to the football team’s superstar quarterback.
Not everything is perfect for Rodgers though. Green Bay lost to the New York Giants 37-20 in their divisional playoff matchup today, bringing their season to an end much earlier than Rodgers and Packers fans were hoping after a great regular season. Away from the field Aaron Rodgers continues to win.
