January 12 is officially "Aaron Rodgers Day" in Milwaukee County
If you live in Milwaukee County,  Thursday, January 12 2017 is now declared "Aaron Rodgers Day."
 
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele says it just seemed fitting since the date had Rodgers' number in it. 
"The date, the number the 12th and I think like most Packers fans at the beginning of this season we maybe had a different impression of where it was headed, but this is the second season in a row where our incredibly accomplished quarterback has reminded us to take a big deep breath and hold that though," Abele said.
On Friday, Packers fans are asked to wear "green and gold" when they head out to work. Many Milwaukee County employees are planning to participate.
