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

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.
