God I love this club. To think 12 years ago I hardly knew the rules of the game and wouldn't have known 1 Carlton player.
Financially supporting them from the Goldie and barracking every day at work, online and at every game I can see.
I get texts and tagged anytime anything happens, showing how much I've invested in our culture and believe in the club.
There are 56006 more like me and most way more invested than I and for far longer. But we're all on the same journey and when #17 comes - my son (18m) will know success for the first time as a Bagger alongside me and every one of you, and I'll support the club until my last day.
Gee that almost brought a tear to the eye.
Only thing I can foresee bringing on tears would be Crippa winning a Brownlow or our next premiership...bugger it...who am I to kid you guys...probably our next win!
