1) How did you choose your screen name?

A simple combination of Vince Lombardi, Curly Lambeau and Bart Starr

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

Well, I was born in Boston and spent a year in Seattle before relocating to Shawano in 1991. My family is a mix of Uruguayan, Native American, Asian Indian and Turkish.

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

In High School I was a track fiend, and despite my ever increasing frame, I still partake in cardiovascular training. I was boxing from the age of 6 until 2004, partaking in 22 amateur fights before I got a serious concussion by slipping in and hitting my head against the corner of a concrete step when the power went out on a vacation in India.

4) How did you find the PackersHome? And what keeps you active on the site?

After I relocated to London, I needed to find a way to watch every Packer game - Google found me PackersHome and despite my initial intention to be a foreground member and take advantage of the benefits, I found that PackersHome was my one stop resource for pretty much everything Packer and non packer related. What keeps me on this site? Are you kidding? the input on pretty much everything from engaging, unique members.

5) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?

I have a very diverse range of interests - it could look like the shit you put on a resume to make yourself seem more learned heh - among the things I enjoy are Origami, Bonsai, RC automobile and planes, computers, music, language, literature, history.

6) What was your first job?

Well, my first non-paying job was working with UNICEF as a fundraiser and activity-cordinator, and my first paying job was the one I am in now, though I started off as a junior.

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

Finding the time to relax and explore myself as a person after spending most of my after-school time in the gym and the ring. I was a relatively late social bloomer, but when I did, I really felt like I was making up for time lost. I can't name one particular memory, but just having fun with friends and women :D

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

Honestly? it would have to be the moment Big Ben's pass was ruled incomplete on the field. I have envisioned what i'd say to most members of the team. I'd tell Aaron Rodgers that the monkey was really imaginery, and that we all knew because we saw him and his special, special talent. I'd tell Donald Driver that Quickie has no obstacle to conquer anymore. I'd tell Charles Woodson that he is a fine wine, and the superbowl is ripe for his consumption.

9) What is your worst fear?

I fear losing myself in a white collar world when I have a blue collar personality and work ethic. I have a pretty senior position in relation to my age, and I always try and condition my mind to stay close, true and familiar to the people I am close to. Basically, I fear not being grounded and believing I am more than anybody else.

10) How many trips/games have you made to Lambeau Field?
Wow, many. I am trying to allocate an approximate number but I am stumped!

11) Whats your favorite food?

Chivito (steak sammich)

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

:-( Home. Wisconsin.
13) Name your favorite 5 Packers all time and explain the reason for one of them.

Aaron Rodgers, Jim Taylor, Sterling Sharpe, Vince Lombardi (hope that counts) and Bart Starr. Although Taylor, Lombardi and Starr were around before I was even a thought, I have made it a mission to become learned about the rich history of our team. I learn alot about life from the personalities of my favourite players, none moreso than Bart Starr. A true example of leadership and servitude.

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

I have been to every continent, and my favourite places in the world are San Juan Puerto Rico, Tijuana Mexico and Venice, Italy.

15) When youre not on PackersHome, what are you doing with your free time?

Working, learning, being a family man in training.

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

Ride shotgun in a Mig-29.

17) What other sports teams do you follow and why?

None. The Packers are my one and only sporting love.

18) What lead to your following of the Packers?

My grandfather was the first of the Mangeria clan to become a Packer die hard, a love picked up on frequent business travels to Wisconsin, a passion passed down to myself :-). My grandfather encountered some problems on his initial visits to our state, his English was pretty basic and he never felt truly settled until he discovered football, and from then on he has discovered his closest friends through the same common interest and love - the Green Bay f'kin Packers! Basically, The Green Bay Packers and their lovely fans facilitated the comfortable entry into America for my grandfather.

19) Can you share one of your favorite memories of the Packers?
It was on PackersHome. We were losing against the Vikings and Donald Driver went down seemingly injured, and the whole crowd started chanting his name and he jumped up. Formo remarked "your fans are amazing". That was worth a million to me!

20) What is your favorite PackersHome memory and/or feature?
See above - favourite feature has to be Gameday chat. and nerdmann.

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

Next up? evad04.

Great read VLS.
It is amazing to find a 20-something that realizes there is more than whatever happened in the 90's on up to this moment.
I find it rather annoying when I speak about something that happened back in the 30-40's (Pearl Harbor attack or a great old black and white movie) and the kids look at me and say, sometimes a little snotty, "That was before MY time." I look at them and say, "It was before my time as well."

:-) I always find that people who disregard history lose out on the opportunity to learn about themselves and what they may or may not like.

My generalisation is that people become the poster-child for current trend and pop-culture because they only have the history in their memory in which to learn from.

What really grinds me though, is when the basis of a subject is made accessible to all via a movie (eg. Pearl Harbor), and the presented visual becomes the cover for any historical innacuracies.

Aww thanks lovey.

I too see people around me I used to know lose elements of their personality that made them amiable.

Ah, can finally comment.

VLS - I'd have to say you're one of my favorite people on gameday chats. You're one of the reasons I love going to gameday chats even if it distracts a little from actually watching the game. You're one of the funniest people on this board and genuinely warm as well.

Looking forward to the 2011 season. :thumbright:

Oh wouldn't that be just great....a couple of American cheesehead expatriates meeting up in London.
That will set back British/American relations a couple hundred years. ::wink:

Seriously, good to learn and know a little more about you Jose.
Neat story about your Grandfather.
