Saw this on a lot of other boards, thought especially for new posters would be good as a first pit stop.

Live in the West Burbs of melb. All the family are mad Saints fans since the mid 70's. Ive been going to games since 1978. Ive got a few kids.
Ive long since retired, my sons moved away.
I called him up just the other day. i said "id like to see you if you dont mind".
He said "id love to dad if i could find the time, you see the new jobs a hassle and the kids have the flu"
"But its sure nice talking to you dad, its sure nice talking to you".
As i hung up the phone it occurred to me, he'd grown up just like me, my boy was just like me.
And the cats in the cradle and.........................................................o_O

Live in Hobart and I am 60. I remember sitting on the wood heap listening to the ****** in September 1966. One defining moment in my life.
I have loved the Saints since being pointed to them by a painter in about 1963. I love every moment and always feel good about something. I don't have expectations, only pleasures. I really enjoy the young players and rate them all, but really like Jack Lonie. Josh Bruce will be All Australian, as will several other youngsters.
