It's hard to believe how outdated some of the answers are, so I thought I would provide a bit of an update.

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

I have a rather unconventional family. There are two women who call me wife, and yes, they both know about and even like each other. Coincidentally, one is named Kathryn and the other is named Katherine, so online, I facetiously refer to them as Kat1 and Kat2, respectively. Kat1 and I recently celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary, while Kat2 and I recently celebrated 18 months of marriage together. It turned out that the waitress at our celebratory dinner was the secretary at my seven-year-old twin sons' school, and naturally she was curious why I was having an anniversary with another woman, so we had to explain our situation to her.

The policy we have with our family is feel free to ask any questions you like, and we will be happy to answer them, but don't ask any questions to which you don't want to know the answer.

Kat1 and I have three sons, including the aforementioned twins and a baby who is going on 11 months.

We all live together as one family. People are often really hesitant to accept invitations to our place, because they have this underlying suspicion that a polygamous household must be a nonstop sexual orgy. When they finally decide to show up, they're usually surprised at what a boringly normal family we are. In fact, we often hear, "You guys are the happiest family I've ever seen. How do you do it?"

This prejudice against plural families makes talking to women annoying, though, because so many of them assume I must be trying to get in their pants just because I strike up a conversation with them. The wife of a buddy of mine actually bridled a few weeks ago when I invited their family over for coffee. "Okay," she said, "but he can't have me for a third wife." He was dumbfounded that she could have such a stupid reaction, as if I were going to try to steal her away from under his nose over tea and crumpets. (Had I been there when she said this, I would have been so tempted to say, "Don't flatter yourself, sweetie.")

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

I think my favorite Packer memory is still Super Bowl XXXI, even though Super Bowl XLV is fresher in the memory. The outcome of Super Bowl XXXI was never in doubt, and the characters in that game were so colorful, whereas Super Bowl XLV was so sloppy that watching it was sheer emotional torture for me. Still, I am glad I had the opportunity to watch it in Groningen, the Netherlands, with PackersHome member Rockmolder. It was pretty hilarious being in a Dutch bar with Europeans who had not the slightest understanding of American football as they swayed back and forth with their five-minute soccer cheers. They screamed rambunctiously whenever anything good or bad happened. Every time I go back and watch that game, I am amazed how sloppy it was for both teams.

9) What other sports teams do you follow?

I serve as editor for a football-oriented website that started out as an NFC North commentary and analysis site and has branched out significantly since then. So I follow a lot of teams pretty closely -- I have to if I want to stay on top of my job -- but I am still a Packers fan first and foremost.

12) How many trips have you made to Lambeau?

My wife and I ate at Curly's Pub once on the way to a whitewater rafting trip, but I have still never been able to attend a game.

16) Where are some of the places you've been, and where are some of your favorites?

I studied abroad in Oldenburg, Germany, from February to August of 2011. That was an awesome experience. My wife and children were able to accompany me and we lived like natives. If you get a chance to do that, I highly recommend it. Our baby was conceived one of our last weekends in Germany, so I call him "mein deutsches Baby."

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

Skydiving. I want to go skydiving. Better yet, I would like to get my jumpmaster certification and teach skydiving.

Non- Love your website, and love the update.

What happened to you becoming a physician? I know you would be great at the science part...

That Super Bowl... I was the most angsty kid back then. It was pretty fun, though.

Anyway, glad to have you back, NSD!

I agree. I tried threatening to double his membership fee's awhile back to no avail. Glad he's back though! If he leaves again, I have the resources to find his residence! :)
