Welcome Austrian Packer!

As a young boy, my maternal great-great grandfather and his relatives lived in a little gypsy village about 20 miles from Vienna. Of course, back then gypsies and jews weren't too popular among some, so his direct family was fortunate enough to immigrate to the U.S. before the hatred and violence blew up. I still have the land grant paper signed by U.S. Grant that gave them their little farm plot near Cashton, Wisconsin. After arriving here, the family switched from making violins to growing tobacco. Our family name on my mother's side, was Dvorjak (sometimes spelled cjak). Wilhemena Petronella Dvorjak, my great grandmother's aunt, sang opera at the New York Met back in the day. All of my living relatives still have great affection for Austria because the native citizens for the most part were very accepting and protective of our kind. And it is so beautiful there. I am very glad to see you sign on.

Hello.

 

My name is Danijel, I live in Novo mesto, Slovenia (a small country in Europe bordering Croatia, Italy and Austria). Started watching NFL in 2013, a huge Packers fan and want us to win a Super Bowl so badly. We've come close since then a couple of times (that Seatlle loss crushed me) and I really believe this year we have a solid chance at winning it.

Zdravo! My wife is slovenian, or a "dobra punčka" as her father used to call her. For Christmas I treated her to three beautiful loaves of potica from the old family recipe.

Welcome to the Packer family. Sorry you missed 2010. Let's try to give you your own Super Bowl memory. This offense is approaching true championship level. The defense is showing signs of being good enough to consider championship possibilities, and the Special Teams need to work harder at not being bad.

Keep in mind as you read the posts on this site that hindsight here is 50/50, we are being dominate deliberately, we kick the tires on every free agent in order to win the Superb Owl, and Norm is a computer generated online bot programmed by the NSA to spy on overseas accounts. I wouldn't interact with him if I were you.

Welcome CroCopNo1! My mother's grandparents came over on the boat from Bohemia. Not sure how to spell the village name but it sounded like Comanitzanedlipo or something like that. They made violins until the Nazis came along. So I am half gypsy and half German/Austrian. I really admire your long distance devotion to the Packers. Here's hoping we all can enjoy a Super celebration at the end of this season.
