Just joined the forums. Looking forward to all the footie chatter. Here's my quick intro: I am Portuguese by birth and American (USA) by citizenship. I have supported SL Benfica since I was in the womb because, like religion, footie fanaticism is inherited from one's mother. I have supported my SC Beira-Mar since I was aware of their existence because they are my "home" or local club from the place of my birth near Aveiro in coastal central Portugal. I have supported the mighty Manchester United since the ten-day period in which the signed "my neighbor" and "my countryman" in August of 2003. I have supported the MLS's DC United since their and their league's inception, but only peripherally so until recently. Wayne Rooney's recent stint with the club has piqued my interest and I think that might stick going forward. And of course, I support the national sides of my homeland, A Seleção das Quinas, and the land where I make my home, the United States Men's National Team.
