American Football and American Cheese Month

This October, we’re celebrating two of the most American things around: our blossoming artisan cheese scene and…football! Yup, you heard us right. Cheese and football — and this one goes beyond the Packers.

We want to know…which American cheese represents each team?

We were inspired by this article from Sports On Earth, which names a beer for each NFL team. Sports On Earth, we’ll do you one better.

So of course, we want to hear from you, the fans (of both cheeseand football)! Comment below, or participate in our daily Facebook and Twitter threads; for every day in October (and one day in September), we’ll ask YOU for (American!) cheesy suggestions for a specific team. Don’t forget to tell us why you chose the cheese! Do the Giants stink like a Red Hawk? Are the Saints as spicy as Crema de Blue? It’s up to you to decide!
