This is terrific.
Jason Wilde said:
MADISON, Wis. -- After his left tackle was done hijacking his acceptance speech, after he’d dismissed out of hand the idea of talking about the impact his infamous “run-the-table” remark had on the Green Bay Packers’ 2016 season, Aaron Rodgers looked around at the Wisconsin Sports Awards audience inside the University of Wisconsin Fieldhouse last week and smiled.

The Packers quarterback was being honored with the state’s “athlete of the year” award, and while Rodgers was perfectly fine with Pro Bowl tackle David Bakhtiari commandeering the conversation as a comedic mock protest for not winning the award himself, there was one thing he wanted to say to everyone before leaving the stage.

“The thing I love about Wisconsin is the people. We have such incredible people here,” Rodgers told the crowd. “It’s fun to recognize the incredible athletes and coaches and sponsors and people we have here tonight. But we also have incredible fans. And I know every team says that, but our Packers fans stuck with us when we were 4-6. ... I’m talking about those who believed when we said we were going to run the table that we could actually do that -- and you stuck with us and believed we could do that. And we appreciate that.”

Pretty cool response.
I'm hoping that this is the Packers year. I'd like to see another Super Bowl win before I ride off into the sunset.

Of course Aaron Rodgers is popular in Wisconsin and is treated like a King. Don't however expect that he will stay there when his carrier ends. He'll be gone as fast as a cat with his ass on fire. He will go live in S Cal,
for sure.

I would expect him to. After all, his family is in Cal, and that's where his roots are. Plus it's a lot warmer in winter!
