@drd23

Here you go again. Not sure where @Snicko went, but looks like you have another riding mate.

Anyways welcome to the forum! Or were you also on the old one? I seem to remember an Aussie_Raven over there as well.

We are a couple of Ravens fans in Denmark as well. I believe Rein and I are the only one on this board though.

Patriots fans account for most likely 50% of active forum posters it seems. 

The fanbase with most bandwagon fans is the Panthers though. There where so many Panthers fans in the 1-2 years they were good. Now they are basically gone all of them.

I have seen two active Browns fans in Denmark. They are somewhat less suicidal than the Bengals fans for some reason.

Your Ravens fandom history
When did you start following the Ravens: 2010 was really my first year following the team closely, when we signed Anquan Boldin.
What made you become a fan: I played Safety in High School and 2010 was the first year I didn't play football, so my outlet for football went from IRL to NFL, and the best safety/defense in the NFL was Baltimore, so I just started following the Ravens.
Favorite current Raven: Lamar Jackson
All-time favorite Raven: Ed Reed
Favorite moment in team history: Obviously aside from the Superbowl win, Ray Lewis' 4th down stop against the Chargers is my all-time favorite moment. #3 is JJ absolutely demolishing Hines Ward

Your interests
Other favorite teams: Seahawks 
Hobbies outside of football: Video games, Snowboarding, sports in general (I played baseball in college), drumming
Favorite movie: Top Gun
Favorite TV Show: Band of Brothers
Favorite band/musical artist: Rise Against

So, dang.  Lots has happened since I signed up here.   Crazy year (yes, I know, for ALL of us) and rough time to be an epidemiologist.

Now, hopefully, I can have some time to b.s. around here a bit.  Sorry to have checked out like that.

I also have an awesome 'new' dog (Husky, Catahoula, German Shepherd, 6yr old rescue) that has turned this empty-nester into a new dad.
