GREEN BAY – It’s official: December 12, 2012 – yes, 12/12/12 – will indeed be Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback will accept the resolution from Wisconsin State Representative Garey Bies (R-Sister Bay), along with fellow Green Bay-area legislators, on Wednesday.
Rep. Bies was the lead author of Assembly Joint Resolution 108, which was passed unanimously earlier this year by both houses of the State Legislature.
Aaron Rodgers Day won't be the first time a Packers quarterback has had a day declared "his" by Wisconsin politicians.
Brett Favre actually had multiple days in his honor: On Nov. 29, 2004 by decree of Gov. Jim Doyle, and on Oct. 10, 2005 for his birthday. Not only that, Doyle had "Brett Favre Record Day" in Wisconsin on Oct. 7, 2007 after Favre broke Dan Marino's NFL record for career TD passes a week earlier.
