Wear Out YOUR Cheese!

I don’t recall when I received my first cheesehead but i know that I never desired to get a new one. Someone got me a new one because mine was, “worn out.” I’ve worn mine. I’m a fan. I want people to know who I am, what I stand for and I don’t apologize. I consider it a great joy to root for The Green Bay Packers and I have been blessed to have made cherished memories with my family watching Packer games and traveling to Titletown.

You might not be a Packers fan or even a sports fan but can people tell what you are passionate about? I wasn’t voted “most likely to succeed” or “most athletic” in high school but instead “most outgoing” and “most school spirit”, something that still makes me smile to this day.

Most importantly are sports the only thing that people can tell you are enthusiastic about? What sort of “cheese” are YOU wearing on your head? Wouldn't it be great if the same millions of people who packed stadiums and cheered on their favorite sports teams were also as excited about their families, church and country? Let people know with your actions what you stand for and make sure it’s the important stuff. No matter what your platform, wear out YOUR cheese!
