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

Posted by Duke Bobber on May 10, 2012 – 10:55 am

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:

2011 Assembly Joint Resolution 108
ENROLLED JOINT RESOLUTION
 

Relating to: declaring December 12, 2012, Aaron Rodgers Day.
Whereas, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback playing in the National Football League and wears jersey #12; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers in just a few years as a starter has established himself as a great leader of the Green Bay Packers and confidently takes the trust his teammates and coaches have placed in him to lead his team to further greatness; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers was named Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLV; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers was named Most Valuable Player of the 2011 season, winning 48 out of 50 possible votes; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers on a 19-game winning streak between the 2010 and 2011 seasons; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers became the only player in NFL history to throw for over 4,000 yards in each of the first two seasons as a starting quarterback; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers played the best season of his career in 2011, throwing for 4,643 yards, 45 touchdowns, and just 6 interceptions, good for a passer rating of 122.5, which is now the best single-season passer rating in NFL history; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers earned the National Football Conference Offensive Player of the Month award for September, October, and November, and FedEx Air Player of the Week six times (Weeks 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 13); and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers currently holds the record for all-time consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes at 13; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers’ performance on November 24, 2011, during the annual Thanksgiving Day Classic earned him the coveted Galloping Gobbler Most Valuable Player award; and
Whereas, the Green Bay Packers finished the 2011 regular season at the top of their division with a record of 15-1, thanks in large part to Aaron Rodgers; and
Whereas, Aaron Rodgers is actively involved in the charitable organization Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (the MACC Fund); now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the assembly, the senate concurring, That in appreciation of Aaron Rodgers’ athletic accomplishments and humanitarian activities, the Wisconsin legislature hereby commends Aaron Rodgers on his accomplishments and declares that December 12, 2012, is proclaimed “Aaron Rodgers Day” in Wisconsin; and, be it further
Resolved, That the assembly chief clerk shall transmit a copy of this joint resolution to Aaron Rodgers.

    Dear Aaron:

    Congrats to you on all of the wonderful things that you have done for us, not the LEAST of which has been forgetting that nightmare that was your predecessor,that big game win….and of course the pending fabulous 12/12/12 celebration in your honor.

    I love you. BUT. Before it was YOUR 12/12/12 it was my magnificent husbands 12/12/12 birthday. He is a retired Army veteran of 22 years. We’ve been Packer fans since Super Bowl I. Which wasn’t even a Super Bowl then…And I love him more. So, anyhow, we will be celebrating 12/12/12 fishing in Key West. And if you want to join….well heck..another fisheman in the boat celebrating their 12’s would be just fine….You may even bring home another trophy.

    Best wishes from Cheesheads
