    Well I already covered some of this in the "Roll Call" thread, but who's counting?

    I go by the name TrueBeliever. That comes from my original handle DrewBeliever, which was a combination of the phrase "true believer" and my unhealthy obsession with Drew Bledsoe, who was the Pats' QB back when I started messing around on the Intranet. When Bledsoe was sent packing in 2002, I realized that the team truly was more important than any one player and so I changed my name.

    I live in Wisconsin, born and raised. Actually I wasn't really into football until I went to college, and though I loved the Packers, I decided one day to find a "second favorite" team to root for. Obviously I chose the New England Patriots, and after a few years of trying to root for two teams I dropped the Packers and went New England all the way... a decision that has cost me a few friendships. Being a Packers fan is almost like being in a religious cult, and some members just can't seem to handle it when you leave. :rolleyes:

    After the *ahem* incident last February, I haven't thought about football all that much. However, tonight I read the training camp preview ish of Patriots Football Weekly and now I'm ready and raring for the 2008 season to start.

    Since becoming a Pats fan, I've also developed an interest in the league that spawned them; i.e. the old American Football League. I love reading about the AFL and am assembling a collection of mini helmets with at least one representing each of the 10 franchises.

    Not sure what else to tell you right now; I'm sure a lot will come up as I get to know everyone here. Are there any questions?

    Oh God, don't even go there. Last Friday I was in a sports card/memorabilia shop and some local yokel was talking the owner's ear off - "I hate Ted Thompson! He took the best player the team ever had and kicked him out the door. If I had the money I'd put a hit out on Ted Thompson." (I'm not making any of that up, either.)

    Packer fans are so clueless.
