It's like claiming yourself the biggest Beatles fans ever but was born in late 70s

One small information about pre-Berlusconi era that I found really really interesting: Johann Cruyff was once a Milan player. Milan invited him to take part in some pre-season tournament in season 81/82 (if not mistaken). He ended up seriously injured and had to miss large part of the season (for Feyenoord?). Add to the fact that Milan beat his team Ajax in 69 Champions Cup Final and the team that he coached in 94 CL Final, he must've developed a certain contempt for Milan

If there’s a God, you must see Him in your heart
If there’s a soul, you must perceive it
Otherwise, it is better not to believe
It is better to be an outspoken atheist
Than to become a religious hypocrite
