It just hit me last night that it is now 30 years since I became a Manly supporter. I was 6 years old and it was the season opener 1981. I have stuck solid throught the good times and bad. Won a few grand finals. Become friends with guys just because they support Manly as well. Cried. Laughed. But forever been faithful and loyal. And forever will be. Hopefully passed that onto my two kids as well. Celebrating by going to watch Manly down Newcastle with the family this weekend. Not bad for a young Arab Muslim boy from Western Sydney. And thank you all for having me.
