Governor Scott Walker has declared today “Aaron Rodgers Day” in Wisconsin. Here’s a photo my son took of Aaron Rodgers this summer at Packers training camp.
For those of you in Illinois, Rodgers is #12, hence the reason 12/12/12 is Aaron Rodgers Day. Get it? The rest of us will wait for you to catch up. In other words, if Jay Cutler got his own day in Illinois (snicker, snicker) the date would be 6/6/06. Coincidence? I think not. (For those of you in Illinois, 666 is the number of the antichrist, so Jay Cutler’s day would resemble the pure embodiment of evil).
Here are 12 reasons I am thankful for Aaron Rodgers
1) He’s awesome. He can throw a forward pass. In all my years of cheering for the Bears, I had no idea it was even legal to throw a forward pass.
2) He delivered me from the Bears. Rodgers got the start after Favre flamed out right when the Bears signed Jay Cutler. I can’t stand Jay Cutler as a player or a human being. Rodgers made the switch easy, effortless, kind of like a back-shoulder pass for Aaron Rodgers
3) Not only can he pass the ball, he has an uncanny ability to run at the right time.
4) He’s a good guy.
6) He knows how to throw a forward pass.
7) He doesn’t have conniptions when receivers drop balls or run the wrong route.
8) He wins.
9) He shaved off the mustache which looked creepy.
10) He has provided my son his first ever Super Bowl Champion team.
11) The championship belt he puts on is awesome.
12) He can throw a forward pass.
