City in Washington bans cheese ahead of Packers vs. Seahawks game
Douglas Schulze, City Manager of Bainbridge Island, WA, issued an Executive Order banning cheese in City Hall.
\"On Sunday, January 18, 2015, the Seattle Seahawks opponent in the NFC Championship game will be the Green Bay Packers, a.k.a. Cheeseheads. Fans of the Green Bay Packers are frequently seen wearing obnoxious wedge-shaped foam hats painted yellow,\" Schulze says in the order. \" 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.\"
So far, County Executive Chris Abele and Mayor Tom Barrett have not banned any items from Seattle or Washington.
Bainbridge Island employees are also being asked to celebrate Blue Friday on each Friday before upcoming Seahawks games by wearing a jersey, logo gear, or team colors.
