So, for the regular readers of my blog- read Abhishek, Neha, Sharma ji :p, Ramyata maybe, Sharat and Aditya- I haven’t blogged in a while. I know, I know, I’m sorry. I deprived you off my excellent blogging skills. :p But not anymore.
So, again, for the regular readers of my blog, which suddenly increased when I started writing about my ahem ahem, yes you know what, I have learnt a few things in life.
EVERYTHING they say about love, it is wrong. Except for one thing. It is red in colour. Fuck yeah they’re right about that. So is LIVERPOOL FC.
I have been following football for 8 months now, and I am no expert in the sport. It might take a lifetime to become one. Anyway, because my friend Amrit, who introduced me to the sport (Can never thank you enough buddy), is a Liverpool fan, I started off as one not knowing what being a Kopite actually means.
Eight months down the line, I’m in love with the sport and the club. It is like every player, is one of my family member. And Steven Gerrard, well, just cannot get enough of him. He is outstanding.
The more I read, the more I watched, I fell in love with Liverpool. Best part, it will stay for as long as I live and never ever ever (read in Arnab’s Meenakshi Lekhi interview style) leave me. And it keeps telling me ‘You’ll never walk alone’.
This club, is beyond being a club. It is a family, that accepts you no matter who you are and where you are from. I am no where close to Anfield, but someday I shall be there. I do not know what will happen to me when I reach there. I will leave it for that moment.
Now, after being a cricket fan for over 10 years of my life, I repent starting watching football so so soooo late. Yes, I do. Of course, cricket has its own thrills, but football, nothing beats it.
The clubs, the fans, the chants, the passion. Happens just in football.
So this blog is to proclaim my love for the brilliant sport that football is.
For the spirit of the game.
And for the passion with which every fan watches it.
Cheers to you. Cheers to football. And yes, Liverpool FC is the best in the world. 😀 (I get to decide who is the best. It’s my blog! :D)
