Age: 26
Hometown: Viljakkala, Finland

1) How did you choose your screen name?
Pretty self-explanatory. I'm a Packer fan and I live in Finland

2) Could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family?
I have two older brothers, and I'm close with them both. We always watch the Super Bowl together. I grew up in Viljakkala, which is a really small town

3) Did you play in any sports or where you involved with any High School clubs and such?
I played some soccer in our school's team in high school. We never won anything though.

4) How did you find the PackersHome? And what keeps you active on the site?
I found it when I recieved an e-mail from someone after the migration from the other site. I keep coming because you guys (Especially you Z) are awesome

5) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?
Music. Everything related to it. I play the drums. I also enjoy playing and watching sports

6) What was your first job?
Summerjob changing tires when I was 14, I think

7) What is your fondest memory of your teenage years?
The freedom of everything. I was pretty good at school so I could spend a lot of my free time doing whatever I wanted with my friends

8) If you could have one moment being part of the Packer organization, what would it be?
Tempted to say draft room, but I woulda loved to have been next to Rodgers and Matthews when they raised the Lombardi Trophy

9) What is your worst fear?
Bees. I f'ing hate them.

10) How many trips/games have you made to Lambeau Field?
0. I'm ashamed of that. I need to change that fact in the next couple of years.

11) Whats your favorite food?
BBQ Entrecote at this local Finnish restaurant. It's like there's a party in your mouth and everyone's invited.

12) If you could live anywhere where would it be?
Milwaukee, Madison or Green Bay, WI

13) Name your favorite 5 Packers all time and explain the reason for one of them.
Ahman Green
Greg Jennings
Aaron Rodgers
Charles Woodson
Tramon Williams - I haven't followed football that long really, so obviously I like our current guys a lot. Tramon is the most underrated corner in the league. I freakin love the dude.

14) Where are some of the places youve been, and where are some of your favorites.
I've circled everywhere in Europe almost. Loved France when I was there.

Drums, listening to music, idling on the internet, gaming, in a sauna or spending time with my friends or girlfriend

16) What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet in your lifetime?
See the Packers play live.

17) What other sports teams do you follow and why?
I'm a NHL and NBA fan as well. I love the Ducks of Anaheim and the Celtics

18) What lead to your following of the Packers?
I had some relatives in the US who gave me a Brett Favre trading card in the 90s. I didn't really start to follow football until 5-10 years ago, and I was naturally drawn towards Favre because he was the only player I knew

19) Can you share one of your favorite memories of the Packers?
The Super Bowl win. I still haven't grasped it.

20) What is your favorite PackersHome memory and/or feature?
Being in the chat on game day with you guys. Awesome folk.

Interesting read Fin. What are your summers/winters like?
It appears as if most of the people live in the southern third of the country. Do you ever get further north?

I think finnish weather resembles the weather in Wisconsin, to some degree. Summers we usually have +20-25 degrees celsius and winters -20-25 degrees celsius.

Yeah, 5 of the biggest 6 cities are located in the bottom third. I live in Nokia, which is right next to Tampere, which one of the "big 6". Of course I go further north sometimes in the winter, because that's where the best skiing resorts are.

Viljakkala must be a small town. Never heard of it.

For as small as a country as Finland is, you make better music than we do. :(

So now the big question - describe your drum set in detail. Yes, I'll know what you're talking about. No, I'm not a drummer. Just a sound snob.

I got:

Bass drum with double pedals
Snare
Hi-Hat
Two Small Toms
Two Big Toms
Two crash cymbals, 16" and 20"
One ride, 22"

I don't find need for any more drums, 99% of songs can be played with that set.

Two big Tom? Cool. My current drummer only has one. He's not as much a Tom fanatic as I am. He loves his cymbals though. He's got 6 pieces of brass.

18) What lead to your following of the Packers?
This was a classic case in Finland of over exposure to sauna's as a youth. Cooked my brain and thus I became a cheesehead.


Corrected number 18 to reveal the real story Tuomas.
