Tommy roots on the Green Bay Packers!

Tommy and his longtime friend Charlie Sheen (they were both in Red Dawn together) went to see the Green Bay Packers playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 11 – as a big Pack fan, Tommy was very psyched for the win!

Tommy’s been a Packer fan for a long time. He has family in West Bend, Wisconsin, which is how he got hooked. His favorite Packer QB of all time is Bart Star, he said.

His trip also made the local newspaper: Celebrities show up for Packers playoff game at Lambeau

Here are some of his tweets and photos from the trip!

Headed to Green Bay with my boys for the Packers Cowboys game!!! #GoPackGo

Here’s another

C. Thomas Howell: A man who can ride anything

I’ve been threatening to make a post about all the things Tommy has ridden for a long time, and tonight is that night friends.

I’m dedicating this post to young Jack, our 10-year-old friend and Captain of #ClubTommy on Twitter.

I’ll update this list whenever Tommy decides to ride other strange things.

First up, the critters:

Before he became an actor, Tommy was a rising rodeo star. Needless to say he’s ridden quite a few horses:

Tommy as the headless horseman

Not to mention a few bulls:

Bull Riding!

A few years back, Tommy did a show for CMT called “All Jacked Up,” where he participated in his first ostrich race:

Ride ’em Drumstick!!

But since that isn’t quite enough, check out Tommy riding an Elephant in his new flick “Escape”:

Yup. That’s an elephant…

From there, we move on to motorized, pedaled and wheeled things. But first let me drop a hint that Tommy once promised us all a picture of himself on a skateboard and well, there isn’t one here… *cough*

That said, lets start simple, with bicycle stunts on “E.T.”:

Tommy can fly a bicycle

How about a gigantic motorcycle from “All Jacked Up”:

That’s a BIG bike

Then there’s the rocket powered lounge chair from “All Jacked Up”:

Nice leather seats there

Of course, Tommy, who’s an excellent celeb golfer, has also ridden his share of golf carts:

Watch those turns, kids.

Jet powered outhouse? Yup, he did that in “All Jacked Up” too:

No. It’s not toilet paper powered…

Bobsledding? Yup.

Don’t try this at home.

Megasaurus car eating mechanical dinosaur? Check.

This thing also breathes fire

Tommy was in a movie called “Tank” but I like these pics of him in a tank from “All Jacked Up” better:

Getting in
Drive that sucker!

How about a dolphin boat:

This boat maneuvers and does back rolls like a dolphin

Or a car boat:

Cruising!

Or… a sprint boat:

These things fly

He also drove in a combine derby in “All Jacked Up”:

Broken axle? Check.

And a monster truck:

Driving over the competition

And, if this counts as riding, street luge:

Rollin’ down the highway…

I’m sure I’ve missed some. I’ll keep updating this post when we get more images. Like that skateboard. Ahem.

Cheers! -Sue
