Let’s get this out of the way up front: Aaron Rodgers is not from Wisconsin. He was born and lived most of his life in California – Chico, no less. He attended the University of California, Berkeley: a college located in a city known for embracing alternative culture. At Berkeley, you can probably major in high-minded dietary choices.
Of course, now that he’s spent more than a decade in Green Bay, bringing the storied franchise a Super Bowl along the way, most of us have reframed the California boy as a Wisconsinite. But outside of football, he has no real ethical obligation to pretend he has Wisconsin roots. If he wants to give up cheese, that’s up to him.
