Hello everyone! Well yes, as you can see from the title, I have started the official Fan Club of PSG fans in NY! I've had the idea for a long time now. It all started back about 2 years ago when I started college. I was lucky enough to end up in a dorm that was literally a block away from the best soccer pub in this city (and maybe even the country) named Nevada Smiths. Visit it if you come to this city, it's like walking back into Europe!!! It's on 3rd Avenue between 11th & 12th street... so if i hadn't found out about this pub, who knows if i would have had the idea of creating this group... You can go to google and search nevada smiths, it's the first website that pops up... Well once you go in there during Champions League games or the weekends, you realize that there are many MANY different supporter clubs (check it out on the site for yourself)... you have a lot from England, one from moscow and one from Marseille... And surprisingly enough, NONE (at least on the site) are from italy or spain or germany... now why? i honestly don't know... and when you have ultras fans in each of those countries, its surprising that none of them decided to get together to form a group here in NYC... too bad for them! well back to this group... About 2 years ago when Marseille reached the UEFA Cup Final, i followed their whole run with the Marseille NY fan club and it was just so amazing... and i was thinking to myself, WHY NOT PARIS?!?!?!?! why hasn't anyone already done it for paris, a city of 10 million people?! part of the reason is of course that this club was only founded in 1970, BUT STILL!!!! PSG is becoming incredibly popular now and the Parc des Princes is being overflowed with new supporter groups that are basically invading the whole freaking stadium!!! on psg forums, you hear of new supporter groups being formed all the time now... so I guess i've been kind of delaying the project, with psg sucking and me being in paris for a semester and all... and then, this past weekend, things changed...i it was an ordinary game day at the bar on a saturday morning... i go with my jersey and my scarf to watch the BIG GAME PSG - Saint-Etienne, and i'm pumped like no other...I get there about 5 min before the game, and to my amazement i'm the ONLY parisian in the freaking bar... the only frenchmen... i was really kind of pissed... i kind of wanted to scream to the whole city and yell "where the hell are you you freakin psg fans!?"... in the mean time, you have birmingham losing to arsenal i believe and the bar is full of guys from the UK... so i ask the guy who owns the bar which tv the game will be shown on, he points to the smallest of the 15 or so tvs in the bar... i was almost halucinating! so there i am, with my coke (since i'm still under 21 years old), my psg scarf and my psg jersey staring at this tv that is probably a quarter of the size of the flat screens in the rest of the pub while still asking myself how i'm the only frenchman there for a game like this... then, just before the game starts, i see 2 people who look incredibly parisian... i found out they were by the way they were talking... then came another... about 10 min into the game, there were about 6 or 7 of us staring at this small screen... one of them was smart enough to ask if we could go watch the game downstairs (a seperate bar that was not being used then and has 2 flat screens and 3 regular sized tvs)... they set it all up and then, by the 20th min of the game, there are about 20 Parisians (except 1 stephanois) watching the game! there were just as many psg fans in there as arsenal fans... and when psg would later score, it was the first time i actually heard psg fans scream & yell in nyc lol... in just 20 min, everything had changed around... and as the game progressed, as we went down 0-1, tied 1-1, then somehow got scored on (psg really has the worst luck, and it's pretty bad because i'm a philadelphia sports fan here and they r the most unlucky city in this country that has the 4 major sports teams) i realized that this might be the ideal time to start the supporters club of psg fans... http://www.phillysucks.com/eaglessuck.html at half-time, the score is 1-2 and i'm thinking, here i am with about 15-20 other parisians... this is the time!!!!! i go upstairs to one of the bodyguards at the door, ask him if he has a pen and paper, go back down and get the e-mails... and as i get all their e-mails, they all get so excited and say this is the best idea! its at that point where you realize that sometimes you just have to push things a little further, and people fully appreciate and support what you are doing... this is where my story ends, but this is how the new club started! and this is just the beginning of that story... so if any of you live in the NYC region, or even on the North American continent of even Nepal but you travel to NYC sometimes, it does not matter, this club is for whom ever is interested... Go to the link below to check out the temporary website i've created through yahoogroups... if any of you are interested, join up... and if you have questions, just e-mail... we're really looking forward to the coming months because we have a lot of goals we'd like to accomplish... enjoy it and ALLEZ PARIS from New York!! http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/PSGNewYorkFans/ Paris est MAGIQUE!
