Played madden 98 and went on the play now option of Packers vs Pats. Picked Green Bay and stuck because at the time I was a kid and Gilbert Brown was on the D-Line. Seeing as he has the same surname as myself it seemed fitting.

Been following ever since.

Just have to say it's not ironic that your favourite food is cheese. That's a coincidence. Duhh

I know that mate, but i like to think it was a sign from birth that I was a Packer at heart.

a lad at work is a Giants fan and was talking about the nfl towards the start of the season a few years ago, one of the first games i saw was a Packers match on channel 4 and saw how Clay Matthews beasted the offence in that game, that season they won the superbowl, so i've surpported them since then!

I almost became a Bears fan (!) cos I love Chicago, but when I read about The Packers and their history, small town, owned by the fans etc. that was it. Oh and I love cheese too!

Wow, I was in Washington and Virginia that holiday and had just got hooked on American Football and decided I would see if anything in the States would influence what team I would support - have never looked back and am now obsessed!

I watched a bit of Superbowl's XL and XLI but really enjoyed watching the Giants and Patriots a year later. So I thought I would follow the NFL more closely and the first game I saw of the following season was week 1 Packers against Vikings, it was Aaron Rodgers first game as starter and the Pack won so I followed them ever since.
