PackersHome Member Name: Mucky Tundra
Real Name (first only): Kyle
Age: 28
Hometown: Rockford, IL
Current City: Murray, KY
Occupation: 3rd Factory Labor/Forever Grad Student

1) How did you choose your screen name?
Wanted something to do with the team but it seems like these days players come and go so I didn't want to get stuck with someone will be gone within a year (or they end up a Viking). Thought about Lambeau and the frozen tundra but that's a little too cliche. Then it hit me this team plays well in the rain and mud for whatever reason and I can't remember too many games they've lost in the rainy weather at Lambeau as well as on the road. Originally went with Soggy Tundra but didn't finish the sign up (had a few to drink after work [grin1] ) when I closed out firefox by accident so I went with my current name instead since I couldn't sign in or get the password sent to me.

2) Could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family?
Grew up in Rockford, IL with my dad. His side of the family comes from most of the farming areas and towns to the south like Byron and Stillman Valley. Mom's side came from Arkansas.

3) Did you play in any sports or where you involved with any High School clubs and such?
Was on the baseball team (ahem) for three years and ran cross country for two. Did speech team and helped build this robot thingy for a competition my senior year.

4) How did you find the PackersHome? And what keeps you active on the site?
During the Saints game last year (2012), was going bonkers over Capers sitting in zone all game while Brees picked the D apart. After the game I didn't read anybody criticizing this, just the kickoff fumble and NFL ref nonsense. Thought maybe I was crazy but a google search led me here. Lurked on and off for a few months before registering. It's big enough to have a lot of different conversations from different people but not so small that every thread just turns into a circle jerk like I've seen on other small forums. Plus the NFC North group I posted on constantly had discussions getting derailed by fans of all 4 teams remind the other fans that their teams did in fact suck and got lucky constantly otherwise they'd be 0-16 etc etc.

5) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?
Reading, traveling, occasionally playing PS3 or PC games, trying to cook, movies

6) What was your first job?
Announcing baseball games at a Boys and Girls club that my high school baseball coach ran

7) What is your fondest memory of your teenage years?
Going on a class trip to the United Kingdom and Ireland. Sparked my interest to travel abroad and in general travel as much as possible.

8) If you could have one moment being part of the Packer organization, what would it be?
The meeting when it was decided Favre had to go

9) What is your worst fear?
Not getting to see more of the world

10) How many trips/games have you made to Lambeau Field?
Only been there once for a tour sadly. Saw a few pre-season games at Camp Randall back in the mid-90s

11) Whats your favorite food?

12) If you could live anywhere where would it be?
Germany. Specifically Regensburg in Bavaria. I've lived there twice for a total of 7 months.

13) Name your favorite 5 Packers all time and explain the reason for one of them.
1. Aaron Rodgers-so accurate, a pure QB so to speak and I like the way he carries himself
2. Brett Favre-for obvious reasons but I still haven't forgiven him yet
3. Edgar Bennett-always played good against the Bears and he was a mudder
4. Donald Driver-almost reliable, played hard and the way he was killing himself vs Atlanta in the 2001 playoff game with the injured shoulder even after the game was over
5. Charles Woodson-did everything on D and was always throwing everything he had into the game to try and win. The half time story when he saw the x-rays tears me up.

14) Where are some of the places youve been, and where are some of your favorites.
In the US: Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland, D.C., Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Ohio, Florida and Mississippi. Though some of them were just driven though with no stops.

Abroad: United Kingdom-London+Wales, Ireland-Dublin, Shannon, Netherlands-Amsterdam, Austria-Salzburg+Vienna, Italy-Rome+Venice, Czech Republic-Prague, Germany-Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Heidelberg, Frankfurt-am-Main, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Regensburg

Favorites in the US: Houston, Chicago, Colorado, Milwaukee
Favorites abroad: Berlin, Prague, Salzburg, Rome, Nuremberg

15) When youre not on PackersHome, what are you doing with your free time?
Reading, surfing the net watching too much youtube

16) What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet in your lifetime?

17) What other sports teams do you follow and why?
St Louis Cardinals though I haven't followed closely the past few years. I'll also root for the Blackhawks and Bulls if they're on. If I'm in Rockford an Icehogs game is always nice to go to.

18) What lead to your following of the Packers?
Was 8/9 years old in 1993 when my dad was watching a game so I just rooted for his team. Got more and more into it with the 93 season and the playoffs that year. Cemented in 1994 on Halloween. For the sake of simplicity I just wore a Packers t-shirt and giant inflatable helmet instead of my costume for the school party. Other kids let me hear it. One Monday Night Fooball beatdown later and they weren't talking. It was a close shave though; my mom is a Bears fan, dressed me in Bears clothing as a baby and insists that some of my first steps were to the Super Bowl Shuffle. Personally I don't remember any of that and vehemently deny any of it.

19) Can you share one of your favorite memories of the Packers?
The 96 season+Super Bowl XXXI, constantly sweeping the Bears in the 90s and under Sherman (his only high point), following the Thanksgiving game in 2007 online while in Germany at 3 am in the morning and realizing there was life after Favre, the 2003 and 2007 playoff games against Seattle, watching Ahman Green as a runner, getting see Reggie White play in person (even if it was preseason)

20) What is your favorite PackersHome memory and/or feature?
Following the 2013 draft and discussing the picks as they came in

21) PM and post the next person to be interviewed.

thanks mucky. love this name better than "sloppy".
I am down the Rock in Oregon.
my son ran XC. He is about 2-3 years younger than you. Oregon had some pretty good runners back then.
it is great to have another Cardinals fan on here. Zero2Cool gets a little paranoid about his weak Brewers when he compares them to a great franchise. I think it is envy.

I enjoy your posts in the other sections as well.

In the Super Bowl thread you mentioned your son going to Sean Considine's high school rival my first thought was "Oh, he's from Oregon, Stillman or Winnebago." I seem to remember Oregon having some pretty good individual runners but all the schools at the time always got crushed by the Winnebago team (won state my senior year).

Thanks wpr and Pack93z for the warm welcome

Fan Shout
Smokey (1h) : BG is in no hurry to anounce a new Rodgers deal. Smart !
gbguy20 (1h) : When is Rodgers signing that extension that was supposedly only awaiting Kirk? Typing on a phone makes things tough.
Nonstopdrivel (3h) : That's what I was thinking: I wasn't aware that he was quitting.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Hopefully not for a long time. We need him.
gbguy20 (9h) : when is 12 resigning
Nonstopdrivel (11h) : I have to say I like it, even if it means I have to put up with occasional ads for Maseratis. 😂
Nonstopdrivel (11h) : Interestingly, since I blocked third-party cookies, ads I see tend to relate to the content of the page instead of my most recent Amazon searches.
TheKanataThrilla (19h) : Mathieu to Texans? I thought he wanted to go to a play that was all about winning football games?
hardrocker950 (22h) : Bears already matched
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Bears will certainly match it though. Maybe restructure after year one?
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : but bears got lots of money, didn't think anyone would make the offer
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : good question
Nonstopdrivel (16-Mar) : Can another team come and big even higher, or is it a one-off thing?
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Bears WILL match the Kyle Fuller offer, but still, good move.
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : @RapSheet Source: The #Raiders are expected to sign #Colts FA CB Rashaan Melvin. More defensive talent adde
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Packers sign Bears CB Kyle Fuller to offer sheet
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Packers have signed TE @TheJimmyGraham. Graham will wear No. 80 for the Packers

Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : @massey_evan Can confirm that the #Packers have been in touch with Tyrann Mathieu.
hardrocker950 (16-Mar) : Good CBs don't come around every day... It shouldn't be a surprise that they get paid well.
DarkaneRules (16-Mar) : These CB contracts were out of control. Maybe there's value in the later rounds of FA
DarkaneRules (16-Mar) : pack runs a tight ship
Cheesey (16-Mar) : Jennings didn’t act like a jerk when he was here. After he left he did.
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : We should bring S Eric Reid, played some LB and is just 26.
Smokey (16-Mar) : OK--> lol
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : ww = we ? I'm not sure.
Smokey (16-Mar) : Who is ww ?
gbguy20 (16-Mar) : the way greg has acted since he left i can't believe ww ever liked him
Cheesey (15-Mar) : Jordy got his big payday. And went to the team where players go to die.
Cheesey (15-Mar) : Jennings must still think he’s the GREATEST! (That’s why he’s no longer wanted as a player)
