via www.chelseafc.com - Hey! Its us!
A little while back, the concept of a thread where all us guys/girls/unknowns (Maiev? ;) ) could introduce themselves to our community was floated (actually, on multiple occasions, if I'm not mistaken), but was eventually dropped for fear that it would fall flat.
However, with the recent dirth of "Hello" threads, with new members introducing themselves, I figured it would be prudent to have one thread where all the introducing could be accomplished - by current AND future members. That way the footy police won't have to search for us individually when the time comes ;)
Anyways, I'll go first. My name is Dan, and I'm from Canada. I'm a student in international relations and hope one day to receive a degree in international law. I've been a Chelsea fan for a decade now, but have only really begun to be a passionate fan since 2008 after the game in Moscow (which shall not be named), after my ManUre friends began beating up on the team. I also occasionally followed Aston Villa during the mid-2000's, and even own a kit from that era (sacrilage, I know). I have also recently jumped on the Swansea/Swans/Swancelona bandwagon. My favourite player is Super Frank, and I'm proud to own two kits with his name and number. I made my first (and definitely not last) pilgrammage to the Bridge this summer, and hope to one day see a game there live.
Anyhow....Open Season is now declared! :)
