Tell the truth now:  Were you one of those people who rolled their eyes when it was announced last month that Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers had signed a record-setting contract worth $134 million?

So, how do you feel now?

On Sunday night, Rodgers suffered a severe knee injury in the first half against the Chicago Bears and was taken to the locker room on a motorized cart while Chicago rolled up a 20-0 lead.  He then limped back onto the field for the second half and powered the homestanding packers to an improbable 24-23 win.  Now that’s a return on investment.

No investment at all was required by Toms Brook, VA’s Dorrie Keller to chalk up her own victory and payday in Week 1 of the POWER POINTS Football Contest.  Keller racked up 119 of the possible 136 points to capture first place on opening week. She entered the contest through the Northern Virginia Daily newspaper in Strasburg.
