About: Thad

Thad is a native New Yorker from Brooklyn. He somehow got caught up in all of this Green Bay Packer fanaticism. There's no turning back for him. Thad loves the Packers but may occasionally use this space to discuss other things such as baseball and more specifically, his beloved New York Yankees. Thad likes long walks throughout the city and having protracted conversations on Twitter to the annoyance of his followers. Feel free to chat with him anytime at @Thadcollins on Twitter.
