    Hi everyone,

    Just joined and happy to link up with Packer fans everywhere.

    I can't remember the exact date that American Football was first shown regularly on TV in England (it's in the region of 28 or 29 years), but I have been an avid fan ever since. In those days the Packers were shown a couple of times early on and I using a few random reasons I chose to support them. Then read Jerry Kramer's book "Instant Replay" and I was hooked.

    Other friends, their allegiance can shift around but I am never going to change.

    Being over here I assume I will often check in when you are all catching up on some shut-eye.

    And vice-versa!

    Living on north coast of Kent, the not-so-sunny South East. Not so sunny right now anyway!

    Iwas just browsing stuff about the Packers and came across this forum. Thought it would be a good way to stay in touch with what's happening.

    How did you come to support the Packers, then?
