I remember years ago my uncle was playing fullback for the great Western United league team(Point Chev & Mt Albert combined ) during the district scheme & they played & beat the St George Team which had won many premierships in a row.He took me & my autograph book into the rooms under Carlaw Park & everyone signed it.Wish I still had it .I used to look at it everyday.This sticks with you. When I was little (8-9) NZ cricketer Chris Pringle told me to fuck off when I asked him for an autograph. I've been sticking pins in his voodoo doll ever since!
About the same time a player from the Pakistani team took my autograph book and one by one got the whole team to sign it. I've always enjoyed watching Pakistan play!
