I think the cheese thing got started in cartoons because it's easier to draw than other foods. It has a solid shape, bright color, and holes to make clear what it is. Try to draw peanut butter or raisins or grains, and it comes out looking like know.

Back in October 1980, I was living in Tampa and went to the Holiday Inn to try and meet Bart Starr who was coaching the Packers then. The Packers were in town to play the Bucs on Monday night. While I waited in the lobby, I met an older man who sat down next to me and we started talking football. He was a GB fan and noticed I was wearing a GB hat. After about 20 minutes or so of telling him what a huge fan I was of Bart and he was the reason I was there, he introduced himself..."I'm Ben Starr. I'm Bart's dad.". Needless to say, my jaw dropped. We continued our talk which included stories from the Packers glory years and coach Vince Lombardi. It was the coolest thing ever!

When the Packers team bus arrived at the hotel, Ben Starr personally introduced me to his famous son. His arms were full so he was unable to sign an autograph but Bart (after being told by his dad that I waited several hours just to meet him) invited me up to his room along with his wife and dad. I remember thinking how cool this was while I was in the elevator with the first ever Super Bowl MVP and the QB who won the Ice Bowl against Dallas.

A few days later, I sent a personal thank you letter to Bart. He sent me back a personally signed 8x10 picture that I still have hanging to this day. He'll always be one of my greatest memories. A very awesome day indeed.
