Are you celebrating Wisconsin's special 12-12-12? Share what you like best about the Green Bay Packers quarterback here – or tell us why you can't stand him!
I personally think 12-12-12 should be a national holiday, but with our president being a Bears fan and all … it’s not going to happen. It’s Aaron Rodgers day. A day for Green Bay Packers fans to celebrate the success of the team under the leadership of No. 12. Let’s just face it, it’s a day for us to wear our green and gold jerseys, to paint our fingernails green (am I right, ladies?) and to just get darn excited that we are Packers fans from Wisconsin. Aaron Rodgers day started as a Facebook joke that became viral. The state legislature officially declared Dec. 12, 2012, to be his day. Milwaukee County workers are being allowed to wear Packers jerseys or shirts to work on Wednesday. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele is encouraging …

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was last year's NFL MVP as the Packers went 15-1, then flamed out in the playoffs. Can they replicate last year's regular-season success?
You can tell Green Bay Packers fans are anxious for the 2012 season by the way they engaged in collective sphincter clenching over the preseason play of backup quarterback Graham Harrell. But then Harrell closed the preseason on Thursday looking more like Aaron Rodgers than Erin Moran for once in a 24-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. For a fan base eager to erase the memory of the Fail Mary in last year’s playoffs, it was the sort of performance — in a meaningless game, to be sure — that should turn the optimism up to 11. The Packers were 15-1 in the regular season, winning 14 games to open the season and establishing themselves as easily the best team in football. Rodgers played brilliantly at quarterback all season to earn NFL Most …

Batter up: the grill is open. 8-twelve MVP Bar & Grill, the partnership between Brewers left-fielder Ryan Braun and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, announced its opening Thursday, just minutes before it said the doors would open at 4 p.m. The restaurant with the name taken from the MVP's jersey numbers (Braun’s eight and Rodgers’ 12), is located at 17800 W.

And Brett Favre.
A 45-year-old Caledonia woman was arrested for two counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly starting a small fire and making threatening statements at 7:48 p.m. Nov. 4 at 9215 Dunkelow Road. According to reports by the Caledonia Police Department, loud music was coming from the house when they arrived. Officers found a lighter and a large box of matches on the patio in the back yard. A coupon book was smoldering on the table and had recently been lit on fire. When they tried to talk to the woman, she walked away and went into her backyard. An officer followed her and believed she had been drinking. The woman, who was staggering and smelled like alcohol, struck a drain spout and fell on a staircase. Upset and crying, the woman screamed at…
