When former Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler was introduced during the nationally televised Miss America pageant in January, she gave a shout-out to the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. After she won the crown and attended the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, fans and reporters kept asking whether she had a chance to meet Rodgers. Kaeppeler said she hadn't, and didn't expect to.

The 24-year-old Miss America sang the national anthem at Monday's Bucks basketball game in Milwaukee. And who happened to be there? Rodgers, who surprised Kaeppeler during halftime in a guest suite at the Bradley Center.

Prior to the game, the 28-year-old Rodgers sent out a tweet suggesting that he was excited to meet Kaeppeler.
