How I came to support West Ham

Over years of gradual exposure mostly from post punk Oi band like the Cockney Rejects and Iron Maiden, til first match I watched via dish on 20/3/1999 Newcastle, Home, 2-0 Irons, Dicanio, and Kitson (had a neighbor named Kitson, and in the 1980's the Philadephia Phillies away colors were Claret and Blue), and the more I learned about the history, the more I noticed Philadelphia and the East End have in common.

My best West Ham memory

Pilgrimage to the Sacred Boleyn Ground on 1/12/2012, Chelsea, Home. East upper, Right
Chelsea- Mata '13. West Ham United-Carlton Cole 63' Mo Diame 86' Maiga 90' (3-1 Hammers).

The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

Liverpool, away, 29, August 2015 Lanzini '3-Noble 29' Sakho 90'+2 (0-3 Hammers, first win at Anfield since 14, Sept.1963)
