    Welcome to the forum! :)
    And Merry Christmas!

    It's great to meet and talk to Packers fans from all around the world. If someone would have asked me if there are any Packer fans in Bulgaria I would have guessed no. Great to hear that the allure of the green and gold stretches that far!

    Welcome to the forums and Merry Christmas! Glad to know the Packers are making fans even in Easter Europe! Cool.

    How is the popularity of the sport in Eastern Europe?

    Ah, well, fortunately the Packers seem to be very popular across the world. Who needs America's team when you have people all over the world supporting the Packers?

    Unfortunately it's not so popular, there are other tradition sports in this part of the world - soccer, volleyball, basketball... Frankly, most of the people are making jokes with me, couse I love this game and they don't understand it... You know that always people say first NO about the things they don't understand! But that's OK..
    We have one team here - Team Sofia! They are working very hard and try to make the sport more popular. They are young boys, most of them, 18-24 years old, and we expect them to qualify for the Central European championship, it will be great :)

    I spent 4 mounths at Madeline Island as a student work and travel program in 2005, I was closer than you but couldn't go to Green Bay! But that was the moment they entered my heart, when I saw what Packers mean for the people in Wisconsin, when I saw what tradition and spirit they have! It's fantastic!

    Thanks!
    I have ESPN America at my place, so I have no problems with that... but when they don't broadcast Packers I just browse the net for stream :)

    Hello BG, and welcome to the forum. I live in Wisconsin, and I'm always happy to see how far around the globe the Packer's fan base stretches. I hope you can make it back sometime and enjoy the best game atmosphere that the NFL has to offer. Go Pack!

    Yep, Jerry Jones spent $1.2B dollars on his stadium and a 50 yard HD screen and still can't complete with the experience of seeing a football game in GB Wisconsin.
