Fan’s cheesy hat trick

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

MADI­SON, Wis­con­sin: Mans­field Ne­blett wanted to wear his “cheese­head” hat to Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s speech in the “dairy state”, but Se­cret Ser­vice agents told him the yel­low hat shaped like a wedge of cheese was a se­cu­rity risk.

Ne­blett, 46, told them he’d skip the speech. The agents re­lented and Ne­blett took his place.

Be­fore Obama took the stage, some­one rep­re­sent­ing him asked Ne­blett if the pres­i­dent could sign his hat. Ne­blett handed it over.

“I’m go­ing to sell it on eBay!” Ne­blett said with a smile. – Sapa-AP
