So this is a good old classic member interview we had on packerforum.com. Let's keep it going

PackersHome name: Packers_Finland
Real name (first only): Tuomas
Age: 23
Current City: Nokia, Finland
Hometown: Viljakkala, Finland
Occupation: Idk what the exact name is in english, but I working in marketing for a local tire factory

1) How did you choose your screen name?

I'm a packer-fan and I'm from Finland. Didn't really use my imagination there.

2) Could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family?

I grew up in a very little place called Viljakkala (population: about 5000), I have two older brothers, the other is 26, and the other 31. We don't see as often as we should, although we try to meet at least once every month. I live quite far away from my parents, but I try to visit them as often as I can.

3) Did you play in any sports or where you involved with any High School clubs and such?

We really don't have the system you have in USA, but we did have annual national basketball and soccer tournaments between high schools. I participated in soccer for two years, we never went far since it was a knock-out from the beginning.

4) What is your fondest memory of your teenage years?

Maybe hanging out with my friends everywhere. One time I remember when I was 15 and schools about to start again, we drank a lot of alcohol and started wandering around, when we woke up the next moring we woke up about 20 miles from home near a lake. We were kinda confused and started calling our parents even though we all had a terrible hangover. We weren't as free and wild as we thought.

5) What was your first job?

I was just a guy in a tire factory. It paid well though.

6) What lead to your dedicated following of the Packers?

My cousins living in Wisconsin first told me about football when I was a kid, maybe 8-10 years old. They gave me a Favre trading card, and a few years later I started following football regularly. Every year I just get more interested in football, even though it isn't such a popular sport here.

7) Could you tell us one of your favorite memories of the Packers?

The first football game I ever saw. Packers vs Bears in the mid-nineties . I remember they didn't have that good of a game, but it doesn't matter, I had already decided I would always root on the Packers.

8 ) How did you find the PackersHome and what keeps you active on the site?

Mr. IronMan sent me an e-mail where he told me a lot of the regulars moved to this site from packerforum.com, and I followed

9) What other sports teams do you follow?

I occasionally watch NHL, with Ducks being my favorite team, I doubt you'd know anything if I started listing my local favorite teams.

10) When youre not on PackersHome what could you likely be found doing with your spare time?

Playing the drums, skateboarding or snowboarding (depends on time of year), or spending time with my girlfriend

11) If you could have one moment being part of the Packer organization, what would it be?

Draft Day would be nice, I've always been interested in how Ted Thompson makes seemingly bad picks, but they turn out great. I think I'd get kicked out pretty soon from screaming "NO TT, NO! DON'T TRADE DOWN ANYMORE!"

12) How many trips have you made to Lambeau?

Zero. I plan on making one someday though.

13) What is your worst fear?

All kinds of insects. I know, I'm a little girl for saying that. But can't help but remember my old army training days in the woods where I got 4 bee stings on one day, and a hell of a lot of mosquito bites.

14) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?

Music. I like writing it, playing it and listening it. I also enjoy sports.

15) Whats your favorite food?

Pepper steak. Doesn't matter where, it's always good.

16) Where are some of the places youve been, and where are some of your favorites.

I've traveled all-around Europe, but I've never been beyond that. Being in France was great, amazing sights and great food. Oh, by the way, if you want a steak there that's well made, not even the slightest bit raw, the waiter or waitress will start laughing at you. My friend doesn't like raw food, so he got quite a surprise.

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

Bungee-jumping. Ever since I was a little kid I've been a bit of a daredevil.

18) If you could live anywhere where would it be?

Green Bay, baby! No actually, I think I'm pretty happy where I am now. I've got a good job, friends and everything near me right now.

19) Name your favorite 5 Packers all time and explain the reason for one of them.

1. Brett Favre
2. Greg Jennings
3. Donald Driver
4. Nick Barnett
5. Ahman Green - I thought the guy was great. Had lots of great years, even though he was a bit fumble prone.

You will notice most of these are players who play now. That's because every year I follow football more closely than the year before

20) Up to this date, what is one of your favorite Packer memories?

I'll never forget being at the Tromadz Lounge when Favre made that underhand pass against the Seahawks in the divisional playoffs. It was great. The whole game was great. Maybe the Super Bowl win was great too, but I wasn't as much fun watching it from a tape.

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

Digsthepack hasn't been interviewed yet has he? I nominate him

TheKanataThrilla (2h) : Would we consider trying Rollins a S?
gbguy20 (3h) : so what's the deal then, are we to expect to see josh Jones in Morgan Burnetts spot this season? i guess I can't say I'm opposed to the idea.
Smokey (8h) : BG is in no hurry to anounce a new Rodgers deal. Smart !
gbguy20 (9h) : When is Rodgers signing that extension that was supposedly only awaiting Kirk? Typing on a phone makes things tough.
Nonstopdrivel (11h) : That's what I was thinking: I wasn't aware that he was quitting.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Hopefully not for a long time. We need him.
gbguy20 (16h) : when is 12 resigning
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : I have to say I like it, even if it means I have to put up with occasional ads for Maseratis. 😂
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : 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 (17-Mar) : Mathieu to Texans? I thought he wanted to go to a play that was all about winning football games?
hardrocker950 (17-Mar) : 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) : Vikings are finalizing a 1-year deal with Sheldon Richardson,
Nonstopdrivel (16-Mar) : Beast, my five-year-old wants to know that you're the best.
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Eagles are releasing DL Vinny Curry
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : CB Bashaud Breeland cut his foot in a non-football injury and it got infected, source said. He is now a few months away from being able to pass a physical.
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)
