DhazerReal name (first only):
computer tech1) How did you choose your screen name?
Nickname from when i was a kid. Nothing special2) Could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family?
I grew up in the small town of Oconto, which is located 30 miles north of Green Bay. It had at the time one stoplight in town but now they have a hwy 41 bypassing Oconto so i think its gone. Lots of bars in town so did my share of drinking when i was young. I have a brother and a sister. Brother lives in AZ and sister lives in Chicago.3) Did you play in any sports or where you involved with any High School clubs and such?
I played all the basic sports when i was younger. Baseball was my first love, then it was Basketball and finally football which i didn't play in high school (to many practices and i got stuck on the o-line).4) What is your fondest memory of your teenage years?
I would say it was pitching in the State Babe Ruth league baseball tournament. I loved the spotlight and i was a damn good pitcher. But on this i got to pitch against a team i faced 2 days earlier and struck out 20 of the 21 batters. I felt real confident going against them seeing i know i didn't show them all my pitches so i was hyped. Well we had to play a league game before that and i pitched 3 innings in that game as a warm up. Well all things were going well for me i struck out the first 8 guys i faced then came that 9th batter. I went to throw a curve ball and i felt a pop and then the pain shot down my arm. It hurt so bad it had me in tears on the mound and i tried to hide it but my fastball dropped all the way down to like 40 mph. When i finally told the coach i can't throw anymore he pulled me and i got checked out. When i finally found out what it was i cried like a baby. I ended up tearing my rotators cuff and tore some ligaments in my elbow. I knew i would never get that enjoyment and god like feeling of being on the mound again.5) What was your first job?
I worked at a local car dealership washing cars. Go ahead and laugh but hey it paid for the beer lol.6) What lead to your dedicated following of the Packers?
When your raised that close to Green Bay you don't really have a choice. I aced Packer history in school :)7) Could you tell us one of your favorite memories of the Packers?
It would have to be the first game i attended. It was the awesome MNF game against the defending champion Washington Redskins. Just the feeling of being in the crowd for such a great win will never be forgotten. Remember back in those days we were used to the 6-10 to 8-8 seasons. The final score of that game was 48-47 which we won on a Mark Mosley missed FG. I did a little search and found this article about that game which i think the younger fans might like to read http://espn.go.com/abcsp...mnf/s/gbwashclassic.html
side note i have never been to a game the Packers lost.8 ) How did you find the PackersHome and what keeps you active on the site?
I was actually banned on another site because i was a Ted Thompson hater lol imagine that. I actually found this site from watching a few feeds of the games and i believe i talked to Zero and came and joined the site. Been here irratating people ever since :p9) What other sports teams do you follow?
I follow some baseball like the Cubbies and Brewers. I like watching Nascar also (good for wasting a sunday so i don't get rusty before the nfl starts)10) When youre not on PackersHome what could you likely be found doing with your spare time?
Creating websites or repairing computers. During the fall i love archery hunting and i also bowl.11) If you could have one moment being part of the Packer organization, what would it be?
I would be Mark Murphy so i could fire TT's ass lol. But seriously i would like to be just the equipment manager or something like that, someone the players will joke around with.12) How many trips have you made to Lambeau?
I have been there 10 times but never on a warm day. Gotta love the December games. I have seen some great games, like i mentioned the Skins game, the Yancy game, a few Tampa games and of course a few Bear games.13) What is your worst fear?
When it comes to life i don't fear anything, but as far as animals i am petrified by snakes ( I act like a little girl when i see them in the wild)14) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?
Working with computers, Golfing and hunting. Video games also is a must.15) Whats your favorite food?
Beef Stroganoff by far.16) Where are some of the places youve been, and where are some of your favorites.
I was born in Encino Cali but was moved to Oconto when i was like 3 months old. I have been to the east coast and west coast. Been to Canada a few times, I have never gone south to much heat i think. I live now in Pa and its a beautiful state but sucks to live here. But after traveling alot i will never pass up on going back home to Oconto.17) What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet in your lifetime?
I want to go to Alaska for a good Grizzly Bear hunt with the bow and arrow. That would be such a rush to get a bear that close to me and knowing you have to make a perfect shot.18) If you could live anywhere where would it be?
I would love to live in Australia out in the outback.19) Name your favorite 5 Packers all time and explain the reason for one of them.
1) Mike "Mad Dawg" Douglas
2) Lynn " you may beat our Packers but you won't lick our" Dickey
3) James Lofton
4) Gerry Ellis
5) Brett Favre
My fav would have to be Mad Dawg because i remember when i was a kid they would play basketball games and he would always take the time to meet us all and i remember one time he actually brought me on the court to play on their side. If you noticed 4 of the 5 are players from back in the days when the players cared about the fans and would interact with us and not act like snobs or make us pay for an autograph.20) Up to now, what is your favorite PackersHome memory or feature?
The best memory was when i told Zero how i felt about Ted Thompson and he said it will be nice to have that other opinion on the boards (even though he said i was wrong lol) He made me feel like a friend right away.
As to this day i think of 99.9% of the posters on here as friends21) PM and post the next person to be interviewed.
Next person i would like to learn about would be longtimefan.
Heres a bonus question for Longtime.What is it that irritates you the most about dhazer?
