MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Miss America finally got her chance to meet one of the NFL's most talented quarterbacks.
When former Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler was introduced during the nationally-televised Miss America pageant in January, she gave a shout out to the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. After she won the crown and attended the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, fans and reporters kept asking whether she had a chance to meet Rodgers. Kaeppeler said she hadn't, and didn't expect to.
The 24-year-old Miss America sang the national anthem at Monday's Bucks game in Milwaukee. And who happened to be there? Rodgers surprised Kaeppler during halftime in a guest suite at the Bradley Center.
The Kenosha News says the 28-year-old Rodgers tweeted that he was excited to meet Kaeppeler.
