We are not that good with microphones and speeches, this is a point. We had all clear in mind but then on the stage we mess up as usual.
Resuming for who missed what happened tonight: we won Football Blogging Award 2019 as Best Forum (judge vote) in Manchester Ethiad Stadium.
At the announcement, we jumped on the stage with the Hidden Crusader balaclava on and would like to be funny and smart and profound at the same time but basically what we would like to say, and didn’t, was just a big “Thank you”: to Alessandro Lucarelli and Marco Ferrari because without them Parma could not exist anymore; to Coordinamento Parma Clubs, Boys Parma 1977 and all the fanbase for being such a great Family; to my family; to Keung and Hong Kong and Macau crew for their amazing work with Greater China division; to all the already organized fans groups that trusted us, to every single fan that join us for a match or contact us to have someone to share the same passion with.
To you and to the next Hidden Crusader that will recognize himself in that gialloblu balaclava and join us.
We are so bad with speeches we also forgot to dedicate it. We want to dedicate this to Mirko the Fighter, in such a crucial day for him, and to all the little big heroic kids that, like him, have to fight a battle they did not choose to engage. If Football gives these kids a chance to smile, then Football should exist even just for this.
Again, thank you all.
