12/12/12 could be Aaron Rodgers day in Wisconsin

The Associated Press reports that the state Assembly in Wisconsin has decided to honor Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the 2011 NFL MVP.

Since Rodgers wears No. 12, the state Assembly has selected December 12, 2012.

Yep.  12/12/12.

The measure now moves to the Wisconsin Senate.

Meanwhile, Brett Favre may want to know why they didn’t do anything for him on April 4, 2004.

  1. Makes me even prouder to be a Pats fan. The real #12 has been here for 11 years, and we’ve never been goofy enough to honor him with a holiday. He is an athlete, not a saint.

  2. “If the govt were concentrating on more important things to do, we would be so much better off..”

    I’ve seen what the Wisconsin government does when it’s concentrating on “more important things.” Trust me, it’s far less damaging when they’re focusing on this type of crap.

  3. 12/12/12 is a Wednesday this year.

    It is also my birthday.

    And it is not long after that that December 21 arrives – by the reckoning of the Mayan calendar that is also the day the world will end.

    If it ain’t one damn thing it’s another

    sigh

  4. Only a fool would find a way to be critical of this. Who cares? Apparently a bunch of inbred losers. If the State Legislature in Wisconsin wants to take the five minutes it takes to pass a bill like this, for one day of appreciation for an individual, so be it. It isnt like it is cutting into time they could use to do something else. Politicians dont do much as it is. Every state with a Professional sports team has done things like this. Of course PFT, and thier infinite hardon for the Green Bay Packers would print this story and put it in a light as something completely absurd. Isnt like the Federal Government is making 12/12/2012 a national holiday. No one will get a day off from work for it, not even in Wisconsin.

  5. Favre/Rodgers. Giants beat em’ both right in Green Bay in p-layoffs and went on to win the league championship. Getting even finally with Bart Starr.

  6. Important stuff being accomplished by the Wisconsin legislature these days.
    Q: are those hygiene-challenged grease stains still hanging out in the capitol rotunda?

    I believe those were fecal stains and most of the WI capital “occupiers” LEFT to go stain other cities with their morally debased nihilist message.

    I was at that game. Flew in from Germany, picked up my Dad from South Dakota, flew down from MN and had a nice time. I remember thinking ‘this Rodgers kid’s got balls.’

    American Veteran out.

    no, you just throw him under the bus for not being able to win the big game with the 31st ranked defense and wrs that aren’t clutch, ignoring the fact he made the patriots respectable this past decade.

  11. Wow, pretty big slap in the face to the prior greats that have called Lambeau home. I’m sorry, but Aaron Rodgers is nothing special. He is no diffrent than any other High-Profile QB right now. Knock Favre all you want, but if Rodgers was that good from the get go, he would have forced Brett out sooner. Jennings, Jones, Finley and Nelson should be getting more credit.

  12. Seems funny to do this after getting blown-out at home in the first playoff game
    ———————————————————-
    i figured they would wait till first playoff home game next year when they get blown out

    bet if you buy $250 toilet paper from WI lobbyists it gets passed in a heartbeat

    dont get mad world, what else do they have to worry bout in that state? keeping up with trailer park code permits?

    No, it’s because 07/07/07 has already passed.

  14. Hey, I’m all for it. It’s less time they can spend coming up with more useless programs I’ll never use, or finding reasons to raise my taxes. Or, maybe they just plain ran out of Republicans to recall? On Wisconsin!

  15. Wow, they really do have nothing better to do in that state. But does it really matter? 12/21/12 is fast approaching.

    ——————————————–

    According to the 2011 Bureau of Labor Statistics 3.8% of the population of MN lives in trailers vs 3.6% in the state of WI. So it’s obvious that the MN legislature would be more concerned with collecting fees for trailer park permits from all you gender bending Helga hat wearing members of the Empty Trophy Case Gang in Manya$$holesrus, MN.

    Looks like there’s at least one person in Sconny who has plenty of time on his hands.

  18. If they did this for Payton they would have to rename the Indy Manningville

    Does everyone get free car ins that day?

    I heard they were going to have a parade as well but no one could figure out which trailer park was going to get the honors.

  19. I think people hate when politicians act like they are part of the team, like making stupid playoff bets with senators,governors,etc from the opposing team’s state and trying to get in the spotlight on the the home team’s coat-tails. Give it a rest, it’s sickening. Another thing…fans go to title celebrations so celebrate with the team, but every time you see one of these, there is some fat city mayor who needs to get in the spotlight and address the crowd as if he was a part of it. Stop it already.

  20. Well, maybe this landmark legislation will bring together the one-half of the legislators fighting recalls and the other half hiding out in dingy hotels to avoid session quorums.

  21. Much as I like Aaron Rodgers, I find this form of celebration very unfair to other Packer greats like Clay Matthews. The chances of recognition for the Packers’ linebacker on 52/52/52 are very remote.

  22. What a slow news day. Who would have thought that the Wisconsin legislature would see fit to honor Terry Bradshaw this way?
