The crew over at Taco Bell always knows how to cheer people up when they're down. Whether it's Charlie Weiss and a winless Notre Dame side or an incarcerated Paris Hilton, they're there to offer up some free Nachos and remind you that it's "Nacho Day."
Apparently it's time for the city of Green Bay to drown their sorrows in tortilla chips and processed cheese. Here's the letter that James J. Schmitt, the mayor Green Bay, received today.

To Green Bay Football Fans
c/o Mayor James J. Schmitt
100 North Jefferson Street
Green Bay, WI 54301-5026
Dear Mayor Schmitt and Green Bay Football Fans Everywhere,
We've all had days we'd rather forget. Clearly, with Brett Favre announcing his retirement yesterday, this is a moment the city of Green Bay and football fans around the globe wish was not true. We wish him the best in retirement, but are also sad knowing we won't see him take the field this fall. When days like this come around, we call it "NACHO DAY."
It may sound corny, but sometimes when the chips are down, all it takes is a gesture of support from an unexpected source to help lift your spirits. At Taco Bell, we are not only sports fans, we also consider ourselves unofficial Cheeseheads - our stores consume 106 million pounds of cheese a year, a majority of it from Wisconsin. So, in the tradition of our "Think Outside the Bun" mentality, we'd like to offer the enclosed "NACHO DAY" award to you and Green Bay football fans everywhere.
Taco Bell joins the city of Green Bay and Cheeseheads young and old in celebrating a legendary athlete who brought home a World Championship, three MVP trophies, who shattered records, and whose passion transcended the game and earned him the love of the fans everywhere.
- Your Friends at Taco Bell
