Mark your calendars – Aaron Rodgers Day is 12-12-12

On November 11, 2011 Jennifer Brilowski of Stevens Point created a Facebook page starting a movement to name December 12, 2012 (12-12-12) Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin. On Thursday, the official resolution was presented to Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau Field.

Here’s the full text of the resolution:

Whereas, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback playing in the National Football League and wears jersey #12; and
