TBS has green lit a new reality show called “Cheeseheads” based on, you guessed it, Green Bay Packers fans. While you’re probably thinking this is totally awesome, I have my doubts.
The producer of the show contacted me earlier this year looking for “face painters” and the like. I suggested some of my friends because they’re awesome Packers fans. They know football, are intelligent, actually have interesting things going on in their lives, etc.
Dude did not want that kind of Packers fan. He wanted Saint Vince.
Our guess — this show is going to feature a bunch of yokels who talk like they’re from the U.P. (or Fargo), wear stupid shit to games, swill PBR and make you and I look like assholes.
Here’s the description from TBS.
Green Bay, Wis., is home to the World Famous Green Bay Packers and their fans: The Cheeseheads. These citizens don’t just bleed green and gold; they eat victory for breakfast. For them, being a Cheesehead is more than just being a fan. It’s a way of life. This show will take viewers into the hilarious subculture through the eyes of a group of proud Wisconsinites as they navigate life in the only way they know how – loud, proud and with lots of beer. For these folks, there is no off-season.
As you can see, we’ve already been branded as “Cheeseheads.” I’ve never worn a fucking piece of cheese on my head in my life and I never will. Also, our subculture of fandom is “hilarious.”
We’re real excited.
We don’t have an air date yet, but we’ll pass it along when we do.
