Would you expect anything less from a native Texan?

Welcome to the forum KingEricCantona!
Like Diamonlil, I am wondering if your handle comes from a UK soccer player or if it's just coincidental.

I chose the name because Eric Cantona who played for Manchester United is my favorite soccer player of all time. It's a name I use on a couple of other soccer boards I visit so instead of trying to remember multiple usernames I try to use the same one everywhere. In case anyone is wondering who he is this is a picture of him:

Hi Chris and welcome.

I remember Cantona very well from his days as a player in England, even though I'm not interested in football at all!

Have fun on the board.
