While the state of Wisconsin is likely still recovering from the Green Bay Packers stunning loss to the New York Giants last night at home, one small bit of solace has to come from the fact that Miss Wisconsin, Laura Kaeoppeler was named Miss America just one night before.

During her introduction on stage, Kaeoppeler told Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to call her.  

"If you're watching, Aaron Rodgers, call me," she said in front of national television. After her victory, Kaeppeler will serve the next year as Miss America while helping to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network.
