Aaron Rodgers Day hits Wisconsin


As you’re probably aware, today is December 12th, 2012.

The 12/12/12 date has gotten notice for plenty of reasons, including a football angle. Earlier this year, the Wisconsin state Legislature named 12/12/12 “Aaron Rodgers Day” in the state to honor the Packers quarterback who wears the No. 12.

Rodgers got a proclamation in May announcing the day from Jennifer Brilowski, a Stevens Point, Wisconsin woman who started a Facebook page to drum up support for using the day to honor Rodgers. Brilowski and others are also asking people to donate money to Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund supported by Rodgers, which seems like a nice way for any Packers fans commemorating their quarterback’s big day.

WGBA in Green Bay has a list of other observances, including a bar’s attempt to set a record for the most Rodgers jerseys in one location.
