Packers Forum Introduction Thread - Come Introduce Yourself!

Recommended Posts

I haven't often posted here this year, mainly due to a lack of passion for the NFL that I've had in previous years, but I thought why not pay a visit anyway.

Your life
Username: OneTwoSixFive
Age: 66 and counting
State you were born in: England (not New England)
State you live in now: same
Something unique about you: No one thing. It's the combinations that make people interesting. 

Your love of the Packers
When did you start following the Packers: Started watching American Football about 1985 (the year of the Bears). Decided to pick a team in 1988. I chose the Packers as an underdog, since they were not a good team then. I had no idea (at that time) of their unique history. They've rewarded me with a great sustained run
What made you become a fan: Thought I'd get more from the game if I picked one team and followed them.
Favorite current Packers: Let me think...........Kenny Clark perhaps ?
All-time favorite Packers: Charles Woodson - he did things his way and made everyone better.
Favorite moment in team history: Not one in particular.

Your interests
Other favorite teams: Like the 49ers.
Hobbies outside of football: Music, Fishing, Golf, D&D
Favorite movie: Loads to choose from, Anything from the strange and cinematic Fellini's 'Roma',  to the amusing 'Red', the gritty Bourne series,  some comedy-horror kung-fu, African Queen, Collateral, Miyazaki's 'Spirited Away' .
Favorite TV Show: Have watched NCIS for years. Loved the short but spectacular  'The Lost Room', such a classic, so few episodes.
Favorite band: Oh God, erm. 1969-1970 was the best ever music (imo). I loved the German electronic stuff (Kraftwerk, Neu, Tangerine Dream), Hendrix, LedZep,  Cream, Floyd. Solo artists like Estas Tonne and Neal Young (Neal's stuff is not really one guy, but it is excellent). I love unique voices (male or female), especially when it goes with imaginative instrumentals.

Age: 43
State you were born in: Saskatchewan, Canada

Something unique about you: Both football teams I cheer for are community-owned.

Your love of the Packers
When did you start following the Packers: mid-teens
What made you become a fan: When I was younger, all of our American TV stations were from Michigan. As a result, I was forced to watch a lot of Lions’ games, and since they were so awful in the late 80s, I felt compelled to pick one of their rivals. I picked the Packers because I thought Don Majikowski had such a great name, and the rest is history.

All-time favorite Packers:  Brett Favre, Reggie White 
Favorite moment in team history: Other than the SuperBowls, it has to be when Favre came back to Lambeau to have his number retired.

Hobbies outside of football: 
Favorite movie: Rounders

Just a heads up to the newer posters, there are going to be some limitations early on in your FF experience.  You get a limited number of posts during your "New Member" phase.  You'll move into the "Member" group soon enough, so continue to check back in daily and talk some Packer football.  If you've got any concerns, questions, or just want to rant myself and @Packerraymond are the forum mods.
