    Well I thank you, and your grandfather, for your service to this country. It takes a special person to be able to fight for our country day in and day out, and I am thankful that there are people like y'all who keep the rest of us safe.

    I, too, am married with 2 kids. I have 2 boys (10 and 5). I'm also an avid football fan. My favorite games to watch, however, are 6-man football games. The high school I'm from plays 6-man, and I too was the quarterback. I also played some center when we ran the spread offense. In case y'all don't know, the center is primarily a receiver in the spread offense in 6-man football games. You know, the more I type the more I realize how much we have in common. :lol: I am currently an EMT-B, and will be getting my EMT-I and paramedic starting in about 6 months. I was a reserve firefighter here in my hometown, until I left it for personal reasons. However, I am considering going back to the department now. We'll just see how that plays out. My full time job is as a maintenance man working for the county in which I reside, as well as the stage manager at our county auditorium.

    So, yeah, that's me in a nutshell.

    My name is Ken, and I am 31 years old. I have been married for almost 10 years (June 14th) and have 3 children. My oldest and youngest are boys ages 9 & 5, and my middle child is a girl age 7. I work in the automobile indusrty where we supply steel for all of the major companies (Chrysler is our biggest client). My main job duty is driving a fork lift, I have been at this job for a little over a year. I enjoy watching all sports especially football and Nascar. I am a big Detroit Tigers and New York Giants fan.
     
  6. My name is Brian. I am 55 years old, and have been married to She Who Must be Obeyed for almost 27 years. We have no children, but are the parents to 2 rescue dogs, Rio & Bogie.

    I am a Human Resources Manager for an automotive seating plant, supplying Chrysler in Belvedere, Illinois (we are hiring, so if you need a job and are in northern Illinois, send me a PM!)

    I was born and raised in Montreal, thus my support of the Canadiens. I immigrated to the U.S. in 1992, and am proud to be a citizen since 2005. Since moving to the U.S. I have increased my fandom on the Patriots (the NFL team that can most be considered the local team in Montreal) and have aquired a taste for NASCAR as well. My interest in baseball has diminished since the loss of the Expos.

    I am a member of the Collector Zone Team on TCC, and am committed to bringing that site back to prominence. However, I joined TCZ as an second collectibles site, since I have interacted with a number of the members here.

    My collecting interests are the Habs, Patriots as well as HOF GU cards in Football, Baseball & Hockey.

    I am also a music enthisiast, and am in the process of converting my classic jazz LPs over to CD. If anyone is interested in trading recordings, please drop me a line.

    Thanks to Mike for starting the site, and I look forward to its continued success.
