“I often get asked this question: ‘Are your tattoos real - and why?’ Well, anyone who says tattoos aren’t addictive doesn’t have, that’s for sure!
“During college, a lot of my friends were getting tattoos of tribals or armbands, but I knew that I wanted to wait to get something I would never regret and somewhere where I could cover it up. Well, 12 years ago I got the Manchester United crest on my back - and that started the addiction. The placement of my tattoo was very fitting because I always said - and say - that I will never turn my back on the club!
“After that, I knew what was needed next: A collage to recognize my passion in life. Finally, I came up with a design, “The Three Things I Admire Most: The Fathers, Ferguson And The Munich Ghosts”. How many clubs have had three European Players of the Year in their same team? Not many, and those three players - Best, Charlton and Law - propelled United to unparalleled hieghts after one of sports most horrific tragedies. The Munich Air Disaster, almost single-handedly, made Manchester United the club it is today. A lot of people hold Sir Matt Busby in the highest regard, but, other than my father, there is no man that I respect and honor more than Sir Alex Ferguson.
“I thought that would have taken the rest of the space on my back, but I am glad that it didn’t!
“There aren’t too many clubs that have three world-class players in the same team at once - but Manchester United had it twice. First, it was the United Trinity of Best, Law and Charlton, but then the club had Neville, Giggs and Scholes play well over 2200 competitive games for the SAME club!” — As told to FOX Soccer Plus by Manchester United Hardcore Fan David H.
