When I lived in Liverpool, I watched several massive matches at Anfield and eventually LFC won European Cup with dramatic come-back, sparked by Steven Gerrard‘s goal and his passionate performance. I was tremendously impressed and decided to support LFC forever.
StarTrek is one of the most famous Sci-Fi in the world. Especially, I like series of TNG (The Next Generation) and Voyager. Captain Jean-Luc Picard(played by Patric Stewart, also known as Prof. Xavier in the X-Men) is my idol.
