The biggest Manchester United fan I have ever met and known has got to be the other Co-Founder of Nuffnang, Ming.
Let me tell you 3 true stories to show you why.
Story 1: Watching the Champion's League Semi-Finals
While Manchester United was playing the semi-finals of the Champion's League Ming was down in KL for work and he was staying at my place.
The match was something like 3.00AM and in spite of having an early morning meeting the next day, he made sure he was up at 3.00AM to watch the match in my living room.
The night was a very very quiet lonely night and I was sleeping nicely through it when I was suddenly jolted out of bed by a yell from my living room.
I remembered that Ming was in my living room watching the match so I assumed Man Utd must've scored a goal or something so I went back to sleep.
The next morning I saw Ming and he was bright awake. I asked him how was his sleep and his reply
"Dammit ... I was so happy last night after the match.. I couldn't sleep!!! I actually CRIED when they won the match!!! "
I just nodded when he went on to say
"Eh I think I'm going to Moscow to watch the finals".He eventually went and lucky for him, Man Utd won the finals.
Story 2: Conference Call
We were having a regional conference call with some potential business partners when suddenly the topic of football came up between Ming and a guy that I'm going to refer to here as John.
The conversation went like this.
Ming: OH I didn't know you're a football fan too!!!
John: Yeah man! I am.. HUGE FAN!
Ming: Who do you support?
John: I support the Gunners. Arsenal.
Ming: WHAT?!?! YOU JUST WENT DOWN ONE BROWNIE POINT ON MY LIST MY FRIEND!!!
Story 3: LIVERPOOL VAN
This just happened last week.
I was down in Singapore and had just had dinner with Ming and some of our friends. We just got out of an elevator to go into the carpark when suddenly he saw a HUGE RED VAN.
On the red van was a HUGE Liverpool Football Club video with the line "You'll Never Walk Alone".
The van looked like it was plastered with this all over.
The minute Ming saw that he started cursing away
"LOOK AT THIS COCKSTER!!! COME PARK RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF ME ALSO... C*BAI NABEH!!! MOTHERF*CKING LOSER!!! NO WONDER HE'S DRIVING A VAN!!!"
To Goldfinger and RockingDandy: It's ok. I'll smack Ming for you both!!!
