Why you might want to learn how to say 'Cheesehead' in Portuguese

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. Can you say cheesehead in Portuguese? Start practicing because the NFL is planning to open this year's football season in Brazil. The September 6 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles will be the first ever played in South America.

Coin toss? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
