AN Australian man has quit his job, sold his house and moved his wife and two toddlers to Wisconsin so he can follow American football NFL team the Green Bay Packers.
Wayne Scullino, 30, quit his job with a telecommunications company in Sydney. He, his wife and two boys are going to every Packers game this season and paying for it with the proceeds from the sale of their home. They plan to return to Australia when the season ends.
"One person said to me, 'Man, you're crazy! That's the craziest thing I ever heard. You're following the Packers? They're not even any good,"' Scullino said in an interview with local television station WISN-TV.
He responded: "Yeah, but things mean more to some people."
Scullino's dream to move to Green Bay started when he was 15 years old.
A friend gave him a video tape of a year-old game between the Packers and the Minnesota Vikings.

"There was just something about the game and the atmosphere and the strategy that got me immediately," Scullino said.
...


He has started a website, chronicling his journey by blog, video and photos.
"The thing with dreams though, in most cases at least, is that if you don't do something to make them happen yourself, they never will," he wrote. "So with that, and a whole lot of understanding from the very best, non sport loving wife in the world, we made an executive decision. A decision that flies in the face of all rational thinking but one that we should all do at least once in our lives."
...

The couple has two sons; one is 2 years old and the other is under a year old, Scullino said on his website.
The family will return to Australia after the Super Bowl in February and stay with Kelly Scullino's parents while Wayne looks for a new job and home.
...

The family does not have tickets lined up for every game but they have been finding some online, and some through their new Packer-fan friends.
"We went to the Washington game with a couple we'd never met," Wayne Scullino said. "But they e-mailed us, saying, 'We've got four tickets. We normally take people from work, but you must come with us."'

Another fan set them up with a furnished apartment at a bargain price, while another gave them a truck to use while they are there.
