Have you heard? The Seattle Seahawks are playing the Green Bay Packers on Sunday for the NFC Championship. According to a press release from the City of Bainbridge, someone found out that they have cheese in Wisconsin. And now, Bainbridge Island City Manager Douglas Schulze has issued a decree banning cheese in City Hall on "Blue Friday."

Read the full executive order below, but here's an excerpt:

Due to the relationship between the Green Bay Packers, their fans, and cheese, the possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products shall be banned in Bainbridge Island City Hall on Friday, January 16, 2015

Time to empty our pockets of cheese sticks.
