We're debuting a new feature here this season, where we profile one of our supporters every month. If you're interested in being featured here or know someone who should be, contact us! And if you see the supporter of the month during a match at the Globe, be sure to say hi!
Name: Gary W.
Hometown: Chicago, IL
Favorite Player: Bergkamp
Favorite Arsenal Moment: Vieira in penalty shootout to win the FA Cup when Arsenal were outplayed
How You Came to Love Arsenal: As a kid watching Arsenal and 1st Division highlights on Sundays before Monty Python would be the genesis of my Arsenal love.

Favorite Thing About Chicago Gooners: When some pals and I started this group in 1999, I never would have dreamed we would become such a rich, diverse group. Chicago Gooners is one of my proudest achievements and having made so many dear friends means the world. What we ALL have accomplished is a group we should all be very proud of. I don't know what I'd do without our wonderful group.
