Hello everyone, I'm Lucio from Chicago, Illinois here in the US. A little about myself: At the moment I'm a freelance 3d/Visual Effects Artist while I finish my online Master's Degree so hopefully one day I can have the option to teach 3d.
To be honest, the world of football is quite new to me, terrible I know! I have always followed the World Cup, supporting Italy(Both parents are 100% Italian) but other than that, after the tournament was over, I always gravitated back to American Football. It was just after this last World Cup that for some reason I couldn't get enough. I spent hours watching every game that was on TV and reading any news I could get my hands on. Once it was over, I needed to dive deeper.
Since my dad was born and raised in Italy, I asked him to explain Italian football and he told me all about Serie A and that I should support Juve(his favorite team growing up ) It wasn't till I remembered there was something in my closet that my grandpa(now deceased, but one of the greatest men I have ever had the privilege of knowing) had bought me an Inter jersey back in '93 on one of his vacations back to Italy. I asked my grandma, whose still alive, about it and she told me that was his favorite team when he lived in Italy and he wanted me to know who they were so he bought me a jersey. At the time when I got it I was just a kid and had NO idea of any of the teams or Serie A for that matter.
Needless to say I was blown away when it all unfolded and was deeply touched. From that moment on I knew there was only one club I could support and that's Inter. My grandpa passed it on to me and I hope to one day pass it onto my kids.
This is my first season following them(I'm so mad at myself for missing the last couple years! I hope I don't come off as a bandwagon hopper, D'oh!) but I look forward to all their future success!
