Two of Wisconsin’s MVP’s will be teaming up to support SURG restaurant group in Oak Creek. Aaron Rodgers, Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers; and Ryan Braun, Outfielder for Milwaukee Brewers have recently signed licensing agreements to support the new joint establishment called 8*twelve.
8*twelve is an MVP grill located on W. Blue Mound Road in Brookfield, Milwaukee. They will serve a variety of American favorites, cooked on an open fire wood grill.
Who says these guys only talk about sports?
Rodgers and Braun have become quite good friends; swapping recipes during the Brewers spring training. They are both excited for the late June Grand Opening of 8*twelve and will both be making several appearances at the restaurant.
The group has also tossed around the idea of opening more restaurants in possibly Madison or in the Fox Valley depending on the success of Brookfield.
For more information on 8*twelve restaurants and dates of star appearances, you can visit their Facebook p...

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 [...]
Considering where he was only a few years ago, it's crazy how big-time Aaron Rodgers continues to become. The Packers quarterback, who golfs fairly regularly with Michael Jordan and has become a regular at some of the biggest non-football events like the Kentucky Derby, was recently named the most marketable player in the NFL by the Sports Business Journal.

A week or so ago, a clip of a Teen Jeopardy contestant incorrectly guessing LMFAO on Jay-Z question hit the Internet at full blast.
Well, that same contestant "Kevin" moved on in the tournament and gaffed on this question mistaking Eli Manning for Aaron Rodgers:
To be fair to Kevin, there was some technical difficulties that might have prevented him from...
Kevin has been tearing up Teen Jeopardy for a while now, putting up a Ken Jennings like run against all competition. I guess he must be bored with winning so easily. I mean what other reason would there be in guessing Aaron Rodgers when all you have to do is turn on a TV or read a magazine to know that is Eli Manning.
Then again, maybe he knows nothing about pop culture. Check...
