Want to do a friendly avatar bet? :) If GB loses, then you must display an "I love (heart) Favre" avi for 2 weeks. :lol: You can pick mine if GB wins.

Doesn't matter what Brett's dressed in (or not dressed in at all), Deanna's not lettin' him go to the big party in Dallas.

He will be at his compound in Kiln wearing his Wrangler's with a Sears HDTV mounted to his tractor riding around the back 40 looking for Doe's. :lol::lol:

Not exactly... ;)

The cheesehead foam hat was the invention of a Milwaukee Brewers fan named Ralph Bruno in 1987. While reupholstering his mother's couch, he realized that when he cut a piece of the foam in the shape of a wedge, it looked like a piece of cheese. Since he was going to a Brewers-White Sox game that day, he decided to fashion the cheesy-looking foam into a hat. He had heard Chicagoans denigrate Wisconsin citizens by calling them cheeseheads before, but it was a name that he liked. He decided to wear the cheese hat at the Brewers' game. Fans at the game kept asking Bruno where he got the hat and he realized it was going to be more than a conversation piece. [He ended up making millions as a very profitable manufacturing business...thanks Chicago!]

The cheesehead hat really took off at Packers home games, where fans showed as much enthusiasm for the fake cheese as they did their favorite team. Thousands of fans wore them to show their allegiance, and the cheesehead became a staple. The hat itself is made of yellow foam with holes on it. There is a clear resemblance to Wisconsin cheddar cheese.

How exciting is that? :D:lol:

This goes well as the alternativc attire now...ordered mine last night...

Does Wisconsin cheddar (the actual cheese, not the hat!) have holes in it? No cheddar I've seen has holes, but if some does, I wanna try it.

John—a cheesehead of a different kind.....

PS. Interesting to see we have some poor sport winners as well as losers! :D

Kudos for the thought....but that's actually all about a silly bet two of us had...

Never envisioned it to be a trendsetter thingy... :D:lol:

Hey - the Steelers may have lost the game but certainly lost no respect, not from any true cheeseheads, that's for sure.. ;)

Lombardi Trophy is back home now......just landed at Austin Straubel airport a couple minutes ago. :)

The celebration at Lambeau tomorrow afternoon will be $5 a pop, and a temp of 6 degrees with below-zero wind chills.

Fans just shoveled out the stadium over the weekend.
