Aaron Rodgers keeps winning. He helped the Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl XLV to cap off the 2010 season. Rodgers followed that up by making a mockery of NFL defenses for the better part of 2011 on his way to being named the league’s MVP. Newly crowned Miss America Laura Kaeppeler gave him a shoutout during the pageant.
About the only thing that’s left is for him to have his own day. Check.
We’ve seen Facebook campaigns for numerous causes, many unsuccessful. But the one started by Jennifer Brilowski of Stevens Point worked with some assistance from State Representative Garey Bies.
As expected, Joint Resolution 108 sailed through the Legislature without opposition. Both sides of the political aisle coming together to honor the green and gold.
“It went through both houses very quickly. One of the good bi-partisan things that happened in the last session,” said Bies.
Lawmakers say it probably won’t be a holiday and public employees probably won’t get the day off. Workers will be encouraged to wear Rodgers jerseys if their jobs would allow.
How dare someone not be allowed to wear their Aaron Rodgers jersey on Aaron Rodgers Day! The outrage!
“I think it’s a great opportunity to get perspective on how a career and a way of living your life can have an impact on the society you live in,” said Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
All hail #12!
