    Hi all,

    1st post to introduce myself. I'm a UK based Bears fan (for nearly 30 years).
    We have our own UK forums (Bears only: 'http://www.beardownuk.com/smf/index.php?action=forum' and NFL & Bears: 'http://forum.nfluk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=33') but this site was recommended so i checked it out; and will be reading/contributing...

    A bit about me (Cribbed from what i've posted on UK sites)...
    Age: 40 Location: Leeds/Wakefield (UK)
    Significant others: Amazing wife and (2) kids.
    Likes (other than the Bears): Having fun playing with my kids/spending time with my family, Real ale (Beer), Association Football - The 'Toon' (NUFC), punk/rock music, fantasy football (currently on Profsl/fantrax/nfl), PC/Wii games...
    Interest in the Bears started when one of my (ex)friends got me watching 'American Football' on the UK Channel 4 TV show in mid 80's. Loved our D. It's so much easier in the internet era (i regularly check out WIndyCityGridiron, Bleacher Report, PFF), back in the 80's we had to work had to get info through various magazines and 'USA Armed Forces radio [for European based troops]'.
    Favourite Bear (past or present): Tend not to 'hero worship' nowadays (hard to relate to players who are paid millions and show little loyalty). In the past it was Hampton and Singletary. Then it moved on through Neal Anderson, to Mark Carrier to Urlacher. Nowadays probably Peanut

    Regards
