Locations and how you found MM
#27
From San Francisco, California, United States of America.  I started following Milan in the early 80s because I liked the red and black colors on a badge sticker I received from some visiting Italian cousins (from Bologna, but originally from a village near Lucca--Ponte a Moriano--from which my grandmother hailed) as a gift.  They gave my sister some Italian stamps and my cousin some lira coins but I got the Serie A badge collection, and isn't it lucky for me that I don't like the color blue or pictures of bulls or wolves.  Anyway, back in them antediluvian days it was pretty difficult to follow Milan, with a lot of reading old Gazzetta dello Sport (days old) issues badly translated with the assistance of my grandmother and watching the Italian programming block on the local foreign language tv channel (ch. 26) and having to sit through horrible Italian talk shows and a whole lot of pope coverage in order to see some match highlights.  Of course Milan was big then and they frequently were the main game shown, but still.  Also, I thought Ruud Gullit was pretty cool (still do) and he'd often be featured in the US media because of his overall coolness and political stands.  Found MilanMania whilst doing an internet search (on Ask.com!) the second day after I got a web-connected computer in 1999.  Was even a moderator (and on Xtratime) for a while on two separate non-consecutive occasions.  I still try to check the site at least three times a week to see what's going on, and am Facebook friends with some old timers from those early late MM days, but life sometimes intervenes and I am not as active as I used to be in posting (and how often can one say Montolivo is not good, really?).  But I still lurk and read...and I still wanna know whatever happened to Bodat!  As always Forza Milan!
