GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't expect to see Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still sporting a thick moustache Sunday, on his 29th birthday, when he takes the field to face the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers, who has been growing a moustache all month to help raise awareness of prostate cancer as part of Movember, plans to shave it as soon as the calendar turns to December.
"Today is what, the 28th (of November), so we've got two days left," Rodgers said during his Wednesday media session at his locker. "I can't have this for my birthday on Sunday. I've got to look good for that."
Rodgers' moustache, as well as one being worn this month by coach Mike McCarthy, didn't bring the Packers much good luck in their 38-10 Sunday loss to the New York Giants. But they weren't doing it for superstition or style.
"It's great when you can raise awareness for something, something bigger than yourself," Rodgers said. "I've obviously enjoyed working with the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund. Any time you're raising awareness for cancer, which is why I'm doing it
"I've done it (grown a moustache) in the past, not for those reasons, but because it's Movember, this is why I'm doing it, and (I'm) proud to be a part of a lot of guys' doing it."
This will also be the first time Rodgers has played a game on his birthday since 1997.
"In eighth grade, we played Notre Dame (in basketball), I scored 30 points, Champion Christian beat Notre Dame by about 20," Rodgers said. "Other than that, I don't know if there's been many opportunities. It was usually basketball."
