Featured Comment by Paul McCann: "Don't get it. Is this football related?"
Mike replies: Your instincts are good, Mr. Holmes. A Chicago baseball team was the first to use the term "cheesehead" as a label of derision for the fans of Wisconsin's baseball team, and, as with many such terms, it was embraced by those it was intended to embarrass, and has come to mean any resident of the Badger State, especially one who is a sports fan. Cheeseheads now wear giant, bright yellow wedges of cheddar made of foam on their heads to sporting events. Google "cheesehead" for some pictures, at which point the cake should begin to remind you of something. The "G" on the cake is the logo of the fabled Green Bay Packers, our sixth-seeded football team which went on a tear through the playoffs and resumed its rightful place atop the glorious throne of football yesterday evening. (Am I getting carried away? It's hard to know.)
