A cheesehead is a hat that Packer fans wear. It is meant to represent Wisconsin for their cheesemaking. It is a triangle foam hat that pretty much looks like cheese. The Green Bay Packers were founded on August 11, 1919 by former high-school football rivals Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun. Lambeau solicited funds for uniforms from his employer, the Indian Packing Company. He was given $500 for uniforms and equipment, on the condition that the team be named for its sponsor. The Indian Packing Company was a company that was involved in the canned meat industry. So why cheese at all? LOL
The reason is because the Packers were named after the company that packed their jerseys, uniforms and also packed cheese. This company operates out of Green Bay that is why they are called the Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay is on the east coast of Wisconsin by the head of Green Bay and the mouth of the Fox River. Door County is to the east. Milwaukee is south about 100 miles.
The Green Bay Packers are still the Green Bay Packers.
