Ah, yeah. I got some pleasure out of the Chiefs loss, as I'm a Steelers fan and I'm not feeling particularly charitable towards the Chiefs right now.

I'm a Packers fan - I have NO idea how we won the division this year - but that was one heck of an exciting final game.

 

So will you regret not being in super sub-zero temperatures in Green Bay today rather than nice, hot Australia? God bless those folks, but I don't have that kind of will nowadays to sit in that kind of weather. In my teens and 20s, yes. (Eagles-Falcons playoffs in 2002- next to last game in the old Godforsaken Veterans Stadium- had a high of 29 F that day. And I thought that was pushing it.) Now in my mid-30s, no thanks.

Hmm - good question.  I grew up in the snow in the UK and played soccer with a LOT of snow on pitches - so perhaps :)

I'm not a big fan of the heat still, despite being down here for many many years now.

Would love to visit Australia one day, but I'd want to do it in the autumn; I don't think I could handle a truly hot summer day. I've seen enough Australian Open tennis (which starts next week) and seen enough players withdrawing due to the heat to know how brutal it can get. I have a DVD of the '93 men's final, and the temp on court was 130 F, and I'm amazed no one had a heat stroke on court that day.

wetsroosa, look up page 9 of the "Where are you from?" thread. I'll post a link when I get back to my computer instead of my phone.

Wow, that's cool about your Grandfather. My brother is a United fan, so naturally the only team that I hate more than ManU is Arsenal (I am a Spurs fan, after all)

I figured it best not to quote the ultra long-post.

Edit: I just remembered the reason I came over to this thread was to suggest that a new member name themselves MeanMrKetchup. I would have done it myself if I had thought of it.

Can't be fun being a Spurs fan having Tim Sherwood as your manager. Goodbye Europe. Man U need 3 or 4 really good players or their season will end disastrously. It isn't just Moyes who is to blame, the team Ferguson left is filled with too many ageing players and/or duds (Anderson, Ferdinand, Nani, Young, Smalling. Wellbeck is nowhere near as good as the media build him up to be.) and desperately needs midfielders who can create. The fact Man U won the title last season was more down to the manager, the signing of van Persie (who's currently injured), and the lack of decent opposition challenging. And don't forget Fergie's first few years in charge, the stories go that he was one game away from the sack.

Me, i'm a happy neutral who supports a Junior side in Glasgow (not kids playing but men who are paid either very little or nothing normally - we don't do the naming thing simple in Scotland, think non-League in England). Costs less than a £5 to get in and its well worth it.
