    DazI On your thought "The only NFL europe team in Britain is the Scotish Claymores. If you look at a map of Britain, Scotand is up the top and I live on the south coast right at the bottom so it is one hell of a long walk LOL"

    A Packer fan especially from Green Bay or Wisconsin here in the US, if it were a Packer game at Lambeau Field might consider the walk, but would probably use some Yankee ingenuity to get there. but on further review of that statement-- Because no body walks here in the USA any more, unless you are a jogger or us older people who do it for exercise. Gas is $2.35 a gallon here in GB and many people have 2 or more vehicles in their garage. So they take their pick up Truck or Van or SUV and some even take a car these days, for that "long" two or three block trip they may want to take !! LOL

    How true PWT! People don't walk much anymore. Of course, with the carzy crime rate, who can blame them? Me, i walk for exercise. I started doing it almost 2 years ago, have walked 600 miles in the last 16 months. Thats probably more then i walked in the previous 30 plus years. Back then, a mile walk was a workout......now, it seems like nothing. The only thing i don't like about walking is, you don't get anywhere fast. You walk for an hour, and it's 4 miles.

    Daz666, Wow! that is steep price for a gallon of gas. At that price, this semi retired guy would have to think about taking the Metro Green Bay bus, Just Think about it any way, We, Americans have a love affair with our Cars since Heny Ford mass produced the Model A's and Model T's Fords in '20s. Ford brought the price down to where most of the average Americans could afford to buy a car. The high mark for gas in Green Bay was $3.09 a few months ago during the Hurricane Katrina problem down South in Miss. and La. but fell fairly quickly to $2.35 a gallon. When it was found that gas supply was going to be effected very much by the Hurricane.

    Ours went as high as $3.50 a gallon before it went back down. Now, it's $2.39 a gallon. Did you see that Exxon had record profits??? The truth is, theres no oil shortage, they are just gouging people.....because they can get away with it.
    I really wish we would just drill our own oil wells in Alaska, get our OWN oil......then we could tell those other countrys that we will pay them $10 a barrel for oil, and if they don't like it, we won't BUY it.
    Now......they have us (pardon the pun!) OVER A BARREL!!!
