During my life, I have been a Fan of many Singers, Bands, TV, Movie & Sports Stars, but one will always stand out.
Mr. Ang Christou – Former Carlton Footballer.
In my Late Teenage Years, when he was playing AFL Football, I was smitten by his looks, personality & football ability. I idolised him & thought he was downright awesome.
But what Ang went through with his Back Injury in 1997-98, was what cemented nothing but total respect for him. He then became, the person I thought about when life dealt me personal setbacks. Ang had battled hell & come through in the end, so I knew it was possible to also hang in there.
I used to write to Ang randomly & to this day I still have his letters & photos. It meant a great deal that he would make the effort to personally write back.
Ang will always remain an inspiration to me.

He currently co-owns the Souvlaki Hut restaurant in Lower Templestowe, with former team-mate Anthony Koutoufides.
