Rodgers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- He's an MVP, a Super Bowl champion, and now, Aaron Rodgers has his own day. Seven months after Wisconsin resident Jennifer Brilowski started a Facebook fan page for the idea of 121212 being Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin, it will become official. Rodgers, who wears No. 12 for the Green Bay Packers, will be in the Wisconsin capital of Madison on Wednesday for when it's put through by state government. The resolution for Aaron Rodgers Day was initially passed by the state Assembly in February, and then by the Senate in March. On December 12, 2012, the Packers will be preparing for their Week 15 matchup against the division rival Chicago Bears. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
