you can send it to me lads and i will wear it to an eintracht frankfurt and offenbach kickers game and get one of the lads to wear it to kaiserslautern. we can put a badge on if necessary , you'll need to send it to me before the end of this season though.
The first time the Devil made me do it. The second time I did it on my own.

Went to the post office...sorry, mail ofiice.....and posted the hat off to Ireland. The girl behind the counter asked me what was in the box for customs and what was its value. I said "A ha". "What?". "A ha". She didn't seem to understand what a ha was so I put on my best Canadian accent and said "A hat, eh!" She put some postage on the box, told me to FO and there I left it. It should be in Ireland in a week.Wink

this will have to become a sticky so we can keep track of where its going lads.  Heres Donals start of the story....Page one


THE STORY OF THE HAT
 
    The Joelson family Christmas is always a highlight for the family but because of work commitments and the distances involved it is not held on Christmas Day but rather in the middle of January.
    Every year, everyone draws a name and whichever name you pick you have to buy them a $40 gift and make them something. In 2007, Tracy Souch drew her brother-in-law, Donal Cullen and the home-made "something" was to be a hat.
    So, you begin your search and this led Tracy to some thrift stores where this hat shone like a beacon to her beadie little eyes with the logic Donal Likes soccer. It is a soccer hat. Donal will like that. She also picked up a soccer ceiling fan and a soccer game all for the princely sum of $40.
    Come January, and amid a flurry of flying Christmas paper, Donal was greeted with the sight of this hat which immediately caused amusement among the 20+ people present. Photos were taken and promises made that it would be worn at soccer games in the future.
    Now, Mr. Cullen was careful not to point out by whom said hat would be worn at soccer games and when he chanced upon the Youboysingreen forum it was like a beacon on light for him.
    Unfortunately, the day he was to send this off to Ireland an ice storm fell on Brantford so his proposed move to have it photographed at a soccer ground, a snow covered soccer ground at that, went to nought but in the spirit of the hat he decided to pass it on.
    There were two volunteers for the hats debut, Eric Collins and Gary Malone, and it was to Gary Malone that it was sent as he would be the first to wear it at a soccer/football ground.
    So it is to Gary that the hat passes.
 
INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Take the hat to a stadium.
    2. Put it on your head.
    3. Get someone to take a photo (or even a video0 of hat wearer (with hat on!)
    4. Pass it on.
    5. That's it.
 
THE JOURNEY.
    17 January 2008
    Hat makes its debut at Joelson family Christmas
    6 February 2008
    Hat departs from Brantford, Ontario, Canada on its way to Gary Malone
 
THE STORY CONTINUES......

I'm probably heading to the Liverpool and Reading game the week prior to that pool vs man u game, i could bring it with me to that....
I'd completely understand if there was an objection to bringing the hat to watch Liverpool, the hat mightnt be impressed....i'm a Liverpool fan and i'm generally not impressed with them at the moment either
