Cheeseless in Seattle? City bans cheese ahead of NFC championship
An executive order by the City Manager of Bainbridge Island states that fans of the Green Bay Packers are frequently seen wearing obnoxious wedge-shaped foam hats painted yellow.
The order added that due to the relationship between the Green Bay Packers, their fans, and cheese, the possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products shall be banned in Bainbridge Island City Hall on Friday, January 16, 2015.
CBS 58 spoke with people at the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha about cheese being banned.
\"That's insane,\" Tyson Wehrmeister, General Manager, Mars' Cheese Castle said.
Most people agreed that this ban ups the intensity for the NFC Championship on Sunday.
The order also stated that the Director of each Bainbridge city department can take actions as may be necessary to
implement the order.
Mars Cheese Castle does sell two cheeses from Seattle, but they don't plan on banning them.
As part of the order, Bainbridge employees will also be celebrating \"Blue Friday\" on each Friday prior to any games of the Seattle
Seahawks by wearing Seahawks jerseys, logo gear, team colors and gathering at lunch or breaks for tailgating type foods and non-alcoholic beverages.
