DALLAS (AP) – The man who might be Australia’s greatest Green Bay Packers fan has returned to the United States to watch his team play in the Super Bowl.

Back in 2007, Wayne Scullino quit his job as a sales executive for a telecommunications company and sold his home in Sydney to pay for a year of following the Packers. His story made him famous among faithful cheeseheads.

Scullino says he kept in touch with hundreds of them over the Internet. Now he’s reconnected with a few in person in Dallas. He has ticket provided by a Packers fan who had an extra one.

Scullino says if the Packers win, he’ll fly back to Green Bay for the victory parade before flying home.
