State assembly says 12/12/12 should be Aaron Rodgers Day

The Wisconsin State Assembly has passed a resolution naming a day for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The resolution designates Dec. 12, 2012, as Aaron Rodgers Day. The Assembly passed the resolution unanimously on Tuesday and sent it on to the state Senate.

Aaron Rodgers wears No. 12, hence the 12/12/12 designation. Rodgers led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory during the 2010 season, and was named the 2011 NFL MVP after throwing for 45 touchdowns and 4,643 yards with a league record 122.5 passer rating.

Rodgers, a first-round draft pick in 2005, replaced Brett Favre as Green Bay's starting quarterback in 2008.
