The other day someone actually profiled The Cheese and pointed out there was no "About us" page to give people some insight into the enigmas that are Steve (L) and Jon (R). So this is long overdue.
We are not writers. We have no writing credentials or books "in the works" and we can't supply you with transcripts from a credible liberal arts college proving we passed the English. What we do have is an odd sense of humor that we (and sometimes only the two of us) find funny and we've gone and imposed our funny upon you, the fine readers of The Educated Cheese.
The Cheese officially began in the early summer of 2009. Originally just a stream of sport and pop-culture infused emails going back and forth between the two of us, we realized we needed to document some of these ideas in a better manner than our "Deleted Items" folder on Outlook. Blogs are a dime a dozen these days, and Red Sox blogs are currently going for half that, so while there will be times when we'll debate some stats and outcomes, there's a better chance we'll tie in a cheesy (pun slightly intended) 80's movie reference and then draw a crappy MS Paint cartoon making fun of someone in an attempt to keep us going at a different speed than everyone else out there (not that there's anything wrong with that). If you want in-depth analysis, UZR ratings, breaking trade news and back seat coaches second guessing last night's moves, well then you should check out some of the sweet links we have on the right side there. If you want Dodgeball quotes, Simpson references and a movie idea for "Caddy Shack 5" staring Kevin Youkilis as Bill Murray as the groundskeeper, well then sit back and enjoy.
Lastly, we'd like to send out a huge thank you to anyone who constantly takes the time out of their day to read our "work". When we started this we always said 'as long as one person is reading' and we still stand by that. As blog readers ourselves, we really appreciate the input, feedback and responses that we've received so far. So thank you for reading and feel free to drop us an email or put a comment up (they can be anonymous) or pretty much do anything you want short of posting incriminating pictures of us in any ongoing legal battles vs. the State of New York. Thanks again for reading the Cheese and stay tuned for our constant updates and awesomeness*
*Awesomeness is self assumed and is by no means an adjective used by anyone else describing us and/or our "work".
