Aaron Rodgers has done a lot of great things throughout his life as a quarterback, both in college and the NFL.

But the one thing missing from his soon-to-be legendary resume is college fraternity member.

Until now, that is. 

In the midst of an off-week, Rodgers decided that he would join the Sigma-Xi chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon at St. Norbert College in Wisconsin. 

According to The Sports Bank, Rodgers, along with fellow Packers quarterback Graham Harrell, were offered an opportunity to be a part of the fraternity. Rodgers agreed because they share similar charity interests.

Here is their official welcome statement from TKE.com:

"In the 18th hour of the fifth day in 2012, two great men joined Tau Kappa Epsilon. Fraters Aaron Rodgers and Graham Harrell, both quarterbacks for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, were initiated into the Sigma-Xi Chapter at St. Norbert College. A small group of collegiate and alumni Fraters helped with ceremonies to orientate them with the principles of TKE."

So, even though most of us miss out on our chance to join a fraternity when we are in college—either because we don't have the time to dedicate to it, or we aren't cool enough to be a part of it, like me—Rodgers gets another chance because he is the best quarterback in the NFL. 

Even when Rodgers is joining fraternities, he is doing it for charitable organizations.

He is becoming the Golden Child of the NFL.

He is great on the field, should win the MVP award this year, led the Packers to 15 wins and had one of the greatest seasons in league history. 

It is going to be hard for Rodgers to top what he did in 2011, but we are just nine days into the new year and I would be willing to bet that he will find some way to do it. 

He is off to a good start with joining this fraternity, though I prefer my groups to be wearing togas and popping mashed potato zits into other people's faces.

I guess that just means that I am not a good person, or, in other words, the exact opposite of Rodgers.
