    I'm new to the forum. I've been a Packers fan since the 60's. I've been married for 31 years to the same gal. I have 6 children; 4 adult and two teens, and one grandson. Bart Starr is my favorite Packer of all time. I graduated from two colleges and have post graduate education. I enjoy military history, the mountains, and my family.

    "Croak" was my nickname in the 70's. It was born out of a firehouse card game where one guy kept shortening my real name and someone misheard him. The nickname stuck.

    Fan from Up North

    Really excited to be apart of the Packer Forum with fellow packer fans! Trust me there are a growing amount of packer fans in Canada!

    So, on to better things! What the hell happened to our starter D? Special Teams not so good?

    A lot of us

    I've found there are a lot of Packer fans in PA. The local sports memorabilia shop told me their two highest selling NFL teams are the Cowboys and the Packers. Imagine that in South Central PA. From which part of the great Commonwealth do you hail?

    Welcome

    I used to live near King of Prussia, not exactly south central but I figured I would throw it out there.

    Holy cow! For 10 years I was in Shrewsbury, now I'm up around Newberrytown! It's a very small world.

    King of Prussia isn't too far. My daughter lived in Langhorne for a while, until she moved over to the Jersey side. Like I said; PA has a lot of Packer fans. The cool thing is, when you are wearing something with Packers on it, all these people greet you with some sort of affirming comment; often "Go Pack Go".
