Well, I like him. I've always liked him. (the only exception being the approx. 18 hours after he was drafted, I was a draftnik,including then- I liked him then, also, just not a QB pick) Even in his fame, he seems to have a certain tongue-in-cheek sense of humor about himself and his fame/position/Packer fan adoration.

I WROTE HIM A LETTER to offer him my encouragement in the teeth of the FAVRE-O-LITES. The only letter I have ever sent to an NFL player.

He responded, 3 years later, in an incredibly classy fashion. It's on my garage wall. It's like he waited until he had a pedigree.

...(and all of dhazer's arguments were exhausted, lol)



VERY classy.

Hey RODGERS! DISCOUNT DOUBLE-CHECK !

If anything, he is under-appreciated, compared to Lord Brett, still. Amongst many.

Damn did we hit a big-league-luck home run with him.

Obviously, football is football. It's a hobby, it's a passion, for some it's more. But when you come down to it, it's a sport and tradition, nothing more. There's no doubt more important things face this nation and state and that Rodgers in particular isn't the center of the universe, but it's 12/12/12 and it's okay to have a little fun.

And I got to wear a Packers shirt and socks to work today. And our President is a Bears fan. :)

This semi-old white guy has only football and the Green Bay Packers left to cling to.

The rest of it my former fellow citizens have completely, totally fucked up. They just don't know it, yet.


Don't listen to me. I'm not under 30, and don't have the e-technical shit by the balls, plus my news doesn't come from late-night.

I find it semi-ironic that some construction workers caught Lambeau Field stadium on fire on Aaron Rodgers day.

Packers jokingly jab QB on Aaron Rodgers Day

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Wednesday was a day unlike any other for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was being celebrated throughout the state of Wisconsin for what was officially recognized as Aaron Rodgers Day.

Rodgers, who wears jersey No. 12, had Dec. 12, 2012 (12-12-12) dedicated in his honor. And when the team's practice began Wednesday morning, Rodgers' teammates didn't let him forget it either, as several Green Bay players showed up in No. 12 jerseys instead of their own.

"I'd like to thank my teammates for wearing my jersey for 20 minutes, and getting scared and taking it off," Rodgers said during a series of thank-you's at his locker.

During training camp, Packers offensive linemen T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton were responsible for a different jersey gag when they swapped out their names with "Friday" and "Sunday" and stood on opposite sides of veteran center Jeff Saturday for a photo-op.

Lang, without directly admitting it, was apparently the brainchild of this joke, as well.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime thing," Lang said. "You've got to celebrate Aaron Rodgers as much as you can around here. He doesn't get very much credit for what he does. I guess to give him his own day, it's pretty special.

"We had some fun with it today, wearing his jersey. He was a good sport about it. He just laughed. He got a kick out of it. It was just something we had a little bit of fun with.

"We like to poke at him as much as we can; not very many opportunities for that, for him being as sensitive as he usually is. So we had some fun with it."

Lang and his fellow pranksters soon switched back to their regular jerseys and continued practice in a more traditional manner.

Really ironic because Aaron Rodgers is going to start the second great Shitcago fire on Sunday when he lights up the bares defense.
