Since when did Belgium become a part of Earth again?

Welcome to the forums. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here. I asume you have some football knowledge, already, being a referee and all. I guess you won't have any problems fitting in over here. Maybe you'll even learn a thing or two, since we have some quite (football)intelligent members.

Again, welcome.

Hey,

Since we separated from Holland, all has been going very well, thanks ;)
I will certainly learn a lot here, not the least about Green Bay. Ruleswise, we use NCAA Rules so there are some big differences with the NFL, but i'll give my view as a ref ;)

I've heard a lot of good stuff about packershome, and it seems to be correct!

take care

LOVE your WAFFLES!!!LOLOL!!!

If someone makes fun of you for asking, just blow them off and ignore them. There are LOTS of people here that are more then happy to help you.
And WELCOME to all our "newbies" and lurkers!!!

Hi, My name is Joe, I grew up in Minnsota and I mover to Green Bay about 20 some years ago. My grandmother was always a Packer fan from back in the days before the Vikings. I was not as serious of a foot ball fan until I moved to Green bay. I became afflicted with that in the late '80s just as they were getting ready to turn the corner.
My position on Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson is, they are doing a professional job. I may not always agree with what they do, but I respect the results.
My Position on #4 is he was a great in season QB who I enjoyed watching up until his dad passed away and his soul died. He let the team down at the end of every year except the year when the ST and D won it for him. I wish the pre '05 guy who had that child like exuberance was still around. But he isn't , by his choice and anybody who hates the team because of it really annoys me.
I try to be even handed and use common sense in my comments. That is why I picked Dexter Sinister for my handle. I will not explain what it means, I will see if anybody gets it.
I am not a spelling or grammar nazi, it takes glaring mistakes for me to notice. I also don't worry so much about details if it doesn't effect the point. Saying someone had a 70 rating when when they had a 71.2 is OK with me. Saying that Favre won the SB in '96 isn't.
The only thing I am unreasonable about is trolls and traitors who disrespect the Team and the Fans. Terminate with extreme prejudice.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

"Dexter sinister" means "right hand left hand" in Latin. It's a rather odd screen name.

Edit: Never mind, I just re-read your post. You said you try to be even handed. I guess that makes sense.

Actually, to be honest, I posted before even reading your introduction. ;)

Hi:

My name is Gina. I live in Southeastern Wisconsin, but grew up in B.R. Louisiana. Followed LSU football most of my life. In my family you had to learn about LSU football or be disowned.LOL

I did not know much about the NFL growing up. I had heard of Green Bay and Coach Lombardi, but my family never made a big deal out of it.

When my husband and I moved to Wisconsin in 1979. I started watching the Packers and despite their struggles learned I learned to love them. Really got hooked when Favre was acquired.

I have been on various Packers websites and learned about this one from GreenBay Addicts website and thought I would check it out. I do more lurking then posting because I am not a knowledgeable as a lot of the posters. But I love reading what others have to say and when I have .02 to throw in then I will.

I have been married for almost 36 yrs. and have two adults daughters and a granddaughter. My dh thinks I need therapy.

Packer football is a wonderful distraction from the challenges in life...unless they play poorly. Laughing
thanks Post received 1 applause.

I did not see this thread in all these years??? That is not possible. Only a vikie fan could be this lame.

I am Wayne. Live in northern IL. 55 years old. Been a fan since the Glory Days. (The 60's not the 30's.) As near as I can tell the 1 year we lived in Minnesota the Vikings sucked so bad I vowed to follow a team with real talent and ability. Struggled through the miserable 70 and 80's and now Enjoy the Glory Day's once again.

I did the interview post. I just wasn't in this thread.
I actually re-did the interview and compared it to what I posted 3 years ago. It is almost exactly the same. I decided not to do it once again.

Here are a comments: The rest is here:




2) Could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family? Grew up in the Peoria area for most of my early years. We did live in Golden Valley, MN for a year. I went to school for a year in a Cincinnati suburb. Lived in north Illinois ever since. Married to a Chicago girl. Got her to give up her wayward ways before we married. (Cubs and Bears.) I have been a Cardinals fan for a little longer I have been a Packers fan. Got that from Dad.
We have 2 kids. Both have graduated from college. My daughter with a double major. My son did the National Guard bit for 6 years. He did a tour in Afghanistan. He was wounded in a suicide bomber incident. He earned a couple of citations along with his Purple Heart. It is amazing they are still giving out Purple Hearts that were made for WWII.
My daughter is trying to land her first real job. My son works for a local Trader Joe’s. He is in charge of the wine department. He loves it. They have let him do some of the managerial duties. He has his eyes on being a store manager. He is also considering going back to school and getting his master’s degree and working with PTSD vets.

14) Where are some of the places youve been, and where are some of your favorites.
In the US- LA, San Diego, Denver & Steamboat Springs. Phoenix, Dallas, Houston. New Orleans, Alabama, all over the Mid West the eastern Seaboard States. All over FL. NYC, Boston, DC, Phillie, Pitt. AND HAWAII.

Did a cruise on the Pacific side of Mexico. A Med cruise from Barcelona to Naples, up the west coast of Italy. A stop in France were we went from Toulon to Cassis.
Whistler Canada.

Being on the Pacific with my wife in a kayak a couple of hundred yards from a Humpback cow and her new born calf was pretty neat. Going to the USS AZ in the morning and smelling the oil leaking out of the hull. Reading the names of those who gave their last full measure was moving. We proceeded to National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl Crater) and finishing the day on the Victory Deck of the USS MO was unforgettable. I snorkeled with Green Sea Turtles. Pretty cool.
Being at Game 3 of the 2006 World Series with my dad was very special. It was the final game he went to. He tickets are hanging on my office wall.
Seeing Ground Zero was moving. Earlier on that trip, we were on Ellis Island with my Dad and uncle 100 years to the day form when my grandmother came through Ellis Island. We all cried a bit.
There are so many things I have seen in my life. I can’t post them all.

16) What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet in your lifetime? I would like to go to Cooperstown and Ellis Island with my son. His Army commitment kept him from going with me. My wife and I will make it to Gettysburg this summer. I have never been there.
Take in a game at all the MLB parks with my son.
