I would have warned the NFL to stay away from politics and I’ve already described the strange and lovable creature known as a Cheesehead. But the NFL made bad choices and the effects are described at Detritus of Empire: Zombie Pirates versus the NFL. If you have ever been to Wisconsin, or even met a Packers fan, you should check out the link.

Look at the picture (there are more at the link). Look. At. The. Picture.
Chasing skeletal football players.

Packers fans are impressive. They wear cheese on their heads. They will sit on a bleacher in December in Green Bay. Have you been to Green Bay in December? I have and I damn well wasn’t about to sit on benches for three hours watching a game played in a blizzard. It takes a special level of dedication to endure frostbite while wearing cheese. They’ll donate a kidney to the Ghost of Vince Lombardi. They love their sport in a way that spans dimensions of time and space and beer beyond my mere mortal perception. If the NFL can make a Cheesehead paint “no NFL here” on placards IN WISCONSIN they have fucked up.
