5 - Anything else you'd like us to know: I started watching NFL a few weeks into the 2003 season. I was on school holidays and very bored. Being a big fan of Australian football I thought I'd check out what the American code was like.
The first game I ever watched was Seattle vs St Louis. It took me half the game to work out what that yellow line did and why the players stopped going for the ball whenever it hit the ground.
Seattle made a great comeback scoring two touchdowns in the last quarter to win by a point. I then couldn't understand why all the players walked on to the field celebrating, and the rams just gave up with 40 seconds to go when they were only down by a point... lol!
I watched several games over the next few weeks, just as a neutral, waiting to pick the right team for me. Then along came the Packers and Brett Favre won me over. I had my first man crush. It was the Monday night game vs the Vikings and Brett had his thumb in a splint.
See here in Aus, if a football players breaks a finger they're out for at least a month. But this guy was just flinching every now and then. And throwing the ball like I had never seen before. It was at that moment that I realised I was a packer backer.
