Hopelessly Devoted

Being a fan is like having your own personal time machine。

做一个球迷就仿佛拥有自己的时间机器。

“忠诚得无以自拔”的球迷,曾在“信任就是一切”的信念中,盲目崇拜自己迷恋的球队。尽管年事的增长,使纯粹的信念变得愈加困难,但“粉丝”的激情并未有丝毫的削减。对球迷言而,矢志不渝的迷恋缘于“做一个球迷就仿佛拥有自己的时间机器”,它使你成功的往返人生的现在、未来于过去。

It was a little after 5 a.m in my home in Hong Kong when Jerzy Dudek, the polish goalkeeper of Liverpool Football Club, saved a penalty from Andriy Shevchenko, a Ukranian playing for AC Milan. The save ended the most exciting sporting event you will ever see, secured for Liverpool the top European soccer championship for the first time in 21 years, and allowed me to breathe.

Apart from the big, obvious things-love, death, children-most of the really walloping emotional highs and lows of my life have involved watching Liverpool. There was the ecstasy of being in the crowd when the club won the European championship in 1978, and the horror of settling down in my office for a 1985 European championship game-only to watch Juventus fans get crushed to death when some Liverpool supporters rioted.
