    Some of you know I live in Florida and just moved here from San Diego after 20 years...born and raised in South Florida. I now live in the Wildwood area (northern end of the turnpike, about 50 miles or so northwest of Orlando). I was just down in the Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale area this past weekend and travel there every so often to see my brother, my dad, and my grandma. I do IT stuff for a living.
    Enough about me, lets hear from some others (I know a couple of you and tried to meet one of you this past weekend....my fault as I should have planned earlier)...it would be kinda cool to maybe have a meet up...I am more than willing to travel as I love driving (2014 Mustang GT Track Pack/Recaros).
    What say you FFC'rs!

    Sounds like fun to me! If I lived a little closer I'd be in! :)

    Where you at? As I said, I'm a little north of central florida but do go down south every once in a while.

    Ohhh, hehe, football or rugby for you (and when I say football I mean what americans call soccer)?
    My football team was good in my eyes until they put that damn chevrolet logo on their kits...and oh what an embarrassment yesterday :disgust:
    And thanks for the compliment of my avatar....love Floyd!

    Probably right...that chevy logo, man I swear, as much love as I have for them, I'm having a hard time with that...if it was ford, I would have no issue, lol. Spurs look really good...Pochettino has them playing really well...I hope they can hold off Chelsea and that other team in the city. I don't think Balotelli can save Liverpool either. ManU will probably be 7th again, lol.

    I like both football and rugby - but I'm not an avid supporter of any team anymore - apart from when it comes to internationals. You think Man-U's performance was embarrassing - I used to plump for Portsmouth - enough said!!! :( :D

    I used love watching Pompey's matches because the fans were unique in the way they supported the team...seemed like an awesome atmosphere to the match...I miss them in the Prem.

    :nod: ..... there's always an awesome atmosphere at Pompey matches - I went to my first game as a small child and the air was static! They still have a pretty loyal fan base despite relegation after relegation. It was just heart breaking to see them fall so low after winning the cup final - oh well, c'est la vie I guess.

    (Edit: changed reaching to winning - not to sell them short!)

    What the hell happened with them...I mean I know they had financial issues, but to go from FA Cup winners in 2008 and now they are in League 2?
    But as you say, c'est la vie.

    When Redknapp left everything just went down hill - they started losing games and money - in the end all the players were sold off - there was no team to speak off. Unbelievable really!

    Yes...heartbreaking for the fans and unfair that the owners were that financially irresponsible.

    :nod: My father and brothers still don't like to talk about it! They used to go to every match - home or away. They still support them - but it's just not the same anymore.

    Hopefully with the fans owning the team now they will start the slow march back to the prem.
