This Is My Religion, What's Yours?
I didn't choose Manchester City football Club but rather the club chose me.
This article is not meant to offend any person, religion / faith or be controversial so please, no complaints from born again Christians or the like.
Definition of the word 'religion'.
Strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny,
To express belief in a divine power.
Everyone has the divine right to believe or trust in whatever faith you wish and if that means my religion is not the same as yours then fine, great - fantastic, we live in a diverse world and long may we continue to do so.
Some may say I sold my soul years ago when I decided to devote my downtime to wine, women and football. The wine and the football is still at the top of my agenda but the wife might have something to say about other women, but hey, we all have the odd skeleton locked away in a cupboard, don't we?
As I watch the years roll by and my priorities change (yes, the kids have grown up and flown the nest) I am now in the enviable position to concentrate on an old faith I thought I had lost - Manchester City Football Club.
Some say there is more to life than football, and I have to agree, there is, but just. With the resurrection of my beloved club I sense the urge to believe again and if that means my priorities in life change then so-be-it, it's my life and I'll do what I want (he says looking over shoulder).
Many of our sceptics, especially the tabloids love to put the boot in when they see any glimmer of failure. Good news doesn't sell papers but look for a misquoted phrase from a club employee and bingo, the moguls make a mint.
I don't pretend to be City's number one fan because I'm not. But what I believe in is that we humans control our own destiny (see definition above). If we believe hard enough who knows what we can expect over the coming years.
(Manchester City). This is my religion, what's yours?

I might as well finish the article off with a touch of class!!
