So I've been tossing up if I was going to post this but decided to given this is obviously taking up a lot of my free time.
A month ago my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world. He's a healthy baby boy who has brought much happiness and joy to our family.
Like his dad, grandfather and great grandfather he's an Eels fan and I'd imagine one of the first, fourth generation supporters.
We're hoping to introduce him to Parramatta stadium next year, but for now he's joining me on the lounge for Eels games.
The team has also gone undefeated since he was born, so hopefully he's a good luck charm for the boys.
I'll also take this time to let you know that my grandfather passed away two weeks before my son was born. As many of you would know, he was the reason my family are Eels supporters and he supported the club from 1956 onwards.
He specifically requested that blue and gold be worn at his funeral and his treasured Eels jersey was front and centre at the service. The last game he personally attended was the opening of the new stadium and even when he was in hospital, he was scheduling the Parramatta matches in his phone so he didn't miss watching them.
