During my early years, I drove my parents mad trying to get the autographs of some of my sporting heroes.
I felt like a kid in a sweetshop when I bumped into some of the Liverpool greats along with members of various national cricket teams.
Well, old habits die hard. I tried but failed to track down Lionel Messi ahead of the Champions League final. My son was desperate to meet him.
