Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers displayed one of the best regular seasons in NFL history this past season after throwing for 4,643 yards to go along with 45 touchdowns and just six interceptions. Despite Rodgers and the Packers falling short of their goal to reach the Super Bowl, the state of Wisconsin still plans on acknowledging their beloved quarterback for the type of season he displayed in 2011.
According to the Associated Press via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the state Assembly in Wisconsin plans on honoring this year’s MVP with “Aaron Rodgers Day.” Coincidentally, “Aaron Rodgers Day” would happen to take place on December 12, 2012 (which is 12/12/12) to honor Rodgers since he wears No. 12 for the Packers.
While the Wisconsin Senate still needs to approve the special day for Rodgers, it must be a sweet feeling for Rodgers to have a specific day dedicated to himself for all of his accomplishments in Green Bay over the last couple of years. The only downfall of this day would be that it would take place during the middle of the week on a Wednesday instead of a Sunday–which would make it even more enjoyable for Rodgers if it happens.
