Name one person that if you bumped into them in your every day life you'd just completely lose your shit like a screaming crying little fan girl who couldn't control their excitement?

  • What's your most embarrassing moment in your life where you thought "Please lord bury me"... Tell all!
  • For whatever reason (an important one maybe), have you ever had to be a hypocrite and pretend to like someone or agree with something you are against.
  • Have you ever cheated on your (or a) partner?
  • Apart from Atlanta, Inter or the US national side...  What's the most excited you have ever been in a football match where you went unusually mental?
  • If you were to move away from the US, where would be your favoured place to go and live?
  • If you could change something about the area and people where you live, what would it be?
  • Do you have a phobia, if so what is it?
  • If reincarnation exists and you couldn't come back as a human being but could choose what to return as, what would it be?
  • Have you ever envied someone, if yes, why and whom?
  • Even if totally out of the ordinary (or it may not be out of the ordinary), what would be your dream job or maybe owning some sort of business...  Tell us about your thoughts on that.
  • If you wasn't you, but you were introduced to you and due to shared friends you suddenly started to see more of you...  What would be your thoughts on you and would you make a close friendship with you?  In total...  What would be the resume you think others that know you, think. 
  • Who's your favourite footballer of all time?

  • What's your most embarrassing moment in your life where you thought "Please lord bury me"... Tell all! Did you not see my response to @nudge on the first page? That was awfully embarrassing
  • For whatever reason (an important one maybe), have you ever had to be a hypocrite and pretend to like someone or agree with something you are against. Yes - often, because everything is so political so whether it's your boss, or a customer, you often have to 'bite your tongue' and go along. 
  • Have you ever cheated on your (or a) partner? Yes. Not my wife, though, but I have. Felt like proper shit about it, too. 
  • Apart from Atlanta, Inter or the US national side...  What's the most excited you have ever been in a football match where you went unusually mental?  Easy - Italy defeated Germany in the 2006 World Cup Semi's. I ran outside with an Italian flag drapped over my shoulders screaming 'Viva Italia! Viva Italia!"
  • If you were to move away from the US, where would be your favoured place to go and live? Copenhagen, Denmark. 
  • If you could change something about the area and people where you live, what would it be? That they would learn to enjoy life and not think everything is so damn serious. 
  • Do you have a phobia, if so what is it? I'm not fond of heights, and I hate loud 'booms' like thunder and fireworks, although the two latter ones I hide fairly well. 
  • If reincarnation exists and you couldn't come back as a human being but could choose what to return as, what would it be? Eagle. Fly around the world, see things that humans may never see, and not be tied down to one place. 
  • Have you ever envied someone, if yes, why and whom? Yes - I think most people probably have. The only one I can think of is one of my friends, who just seems to have it all put together, and since we were kids, has just had so much self-confidence that I think allowed him to take more chances, and be great. when i was growing up, I struggled like most with self-confidence so I certainly envied him. 
  • Even if totally out of the ordinary (or it may not be out of the ordinary), what would be your dream job or maybe owning some sort of business...  Tell us about your thoughts on that. Be a profressional runner OR be a CISO for a Hoka One One or Altra. I'd love to be surrounded by runners at all working hours. 
  • If you wasn't you, but you were introduced to you and due to shared friends you suddenly started to see more of you...  What would be your thoughts on you and would you make a close friendship with you?  In total...  What would be the resume you think others that know you, think. I'd probably find myself very standoff-ish. I'm an introvert, and so naturally going to places and meeting people drains the life our of me. 
  • Who's your favourite footballer of all time? Probably Marco Materazzi.

What's your problem with me? No problem, you are annoy me. You post things against Inter Milan not realizing that AC are either doing the same, or worse. You spout off all these statements without backing them up with facts and then go into hiding when called out on them. Very little really annoys me, but people (or posters) who states things as 'Fact', without doing any research, is certainly something that gets under my nerves.

Marco Materazzi?

Not because of who, but who! I definitely hope he isn't a reflection of you in any way mate. Him along with Sinisa Mihaijlović I found despicable as characters.

Ha! Yeah - I think he's actually a solid guy in real life (still heavily involved with Inter and I haven't heard anything bad about him). He was incredibly reckless at times, but he was such a bull and an elite defender. 

Plus - Was there when he did this against Messina.

I just can't forget what he said to Zinedine Zidane which subsequently ended up with the French player being red carded. One of the lowest things I've ever witnessed in football to be honest mate. I just can't erase that from my head whenever his name pops up.

Yeah definitely not a good moment for him, but I guess I rarely think about it. 

If it makes you feel any different, I was struggling between Cambiasso, Zanetti, and Adriano, and of course, of the greatest of all time and player that made football beautiful to me, Theiry Henry.

My dad and I were in Milan, decided to buy tickets since it was Inter vs Milan, the tickets we bought were on the 'Blue' side, so I became an Inter fan because of this match and where we were sitting.

If I were an Inter fan and having to choose from contemporary footballers, then Zanetti is the man by a million light-years.

As for Inter's greatest footballer, I feel pride in saying that Luisíto (the real Luis Suárez) who is a countryman of mine in Galicia, is the man that finally made Inter great.

Most favourite F1 driver (bar Ricciardo)?

Least favourite F1 driver?

You can invite 5 fictional characters for dinner. Who do you invite and why?

Do you cook? What's your best/most favourite dish to cook?

That's one hell of a first game to go to xD 

If you couldn't support Atlanta or couldn't see them, or if they didn't even exist, who would be the club you follow and watch in US?

Do you get to go to many Falcons games?

Zanetti was awesome, but I loved as a kid watching Materazzi take on the biggest and best. Marco is/was sooooooooooo passionate that he is an Inter idol. 

I have read a lot about Luis Saurez, but he was wayyyyyyyy before my time in terms of getting involved in football.

Most favourite F1 driver (bar Ricciardo)? Either Max or Lando. Max is an absolutely different person than the one protrayed in the series, and Lando just seems like a really nice, young kid. 

Least favourite F1 driver? Grossjean - Only because he frustrates me with how poorly he has been and I'm not sure really why he is still an F1 driver. 

You can invite 5 fictional characters for dinner. Who do you invite and why?  

1. Prince Lev Myshkin - favorite book ever, and  really one of the most intriguing characters in any book. 
2. Superman - Why not? 
3. Luke Skywalker - Absolute Legend
4. Captain Kirk - Again, absolute legend, and while I'm more of a Spock fan, CK would be a better dinner guest. 
5. Jessica Rabbit - Growing up I used to stop breathing when she would come on the screen. Incredible. 

Do you cook? What's your best/most favourite dish to cook?

I do. I was vegetarian for so long that I kind of had to learn how to cook. One of my favorite and most complimented meals is my Eggplant Parm.

Do you get to go to many Falcons games? Nope - I don't watch a ton of NFL and going to a game probably would cost me $300 for a ticket for the wife and I, so it really just doesn't seem worth it to me.

Any reason why you didn’t follow your dreams of being an architect or author? Did you make efforts to or change your mind as you got older?

Architect fizzled out, which is probably for the best. 

Author is still the 'ultimate dream', but really it requires so much time and sacrifice that I'm not sure I could ever give up what I need to in order to become one.

What kind of author? Like, fiction? Non-fiction? What would you like to write about?

If it's supposed to be a full-time job and main source of income, then yeah, it's hard work, a lot of luck, talent, good connections and is probably quite unrealistic. If it's just something on a side to fulfill a lifelong dream, then I don't see much issue with that and you don't really need to give up much if you write on your free time and self-publish (with the likes of Amazon it's never been easier). Or you can always become one when you retire :P

Ha - I wanted to right fiction really, which is odd since the authors I admire most are those that right more about history, and makes events that have already happened feel intense and like I was there. 

So really, I'm not sure what I'd do.

My ex-neighbour is a retired journalist and a part-time author, he always wrote books (fiction; mostly satire) on his free time and still does... Must say that he's got real talent for it though as the writing process itself is almost effortless for him but the whole research and plot development still takes time of course. He's released a few books in the last few years and is in the process of publishing his next one at the moment... My point is, if you have ideas, ability and passion for it, then definitely give it a go. I'll read it :P

Haha yeah - it's just finding the time. With my two jobs at the moment, parenting, and training for an ultra marathon, my time is soooooo slim at the moment. 

Things should be settled down later this year though once one of the jobs goes away, and maybe I'll put more effort into it then.
