25 Years ago The Cheesy Weeny was created to celebrate the Green Bay Fans. When Green Bay won the big game in 1997, Wisconsin was covered in green and gold and G logos. "You could put those colors on anything and it would sell... How about The Cheesy Weeny Condom?" The Associated Press picked up a press release and the Cheesy Weeny went worldwide. Jay Leno featured it in his monolouge, Rush Limbaugh talked about it, Fox and Friends did an interview, Playboy Magazine's Raw Data and major newspapers around the globe wrote about the Cheesy Weeny.
SPORT A LEGEND
The team is pumped the game is tight. Everyone knows this is the night. Helmet on and ready to drive. The Green Bay Package never felt so alive. Unable to bend and straight as a pole. The Green Bay Package finds the right hole. Right up the middle...Uprights in sight, The Green Bay Package scored! Oh what a night!
The poem on the back was written to honor the 99 yard Desmond Howard kick return. Watch it here

The newly founded Cheesehead Condom Co. is marketing the newest form of, uh, Packer Wear: Yep, Packer condoms in green and gold packages. They cost $2.50, which is a small price to pay if you're talking about limiting the number of Packers fans.

The New green and gold "Sport a Legend" condom will probably do well, at least until some weekend quarterback's sweetheart takes the football metaphor a step too far and demands a measurement.
