From Malaysia to San Jose, Daren Gilbert has been around the world to see his beloved Norwich City FC Canaries.  A season ticket holder for 32 years, Gilbert hasn't missed a single Norwich City FC match since April 16, 1983. SJEarthquakes.com was lucky enough to sit down with Daren on Saturday. 

SJEarthquakes.com: You go to every single home and away Norwich game. Where are some of the places you've traveled for games?

Daren Gilbert: Malaysia, Germany, Austria,  Holland, Sweden, Italy, Scotland 

SJEQ: Any crazy stories from your travels?

DG: None that I'm allowed to repeat! 

SJEQ: Where do you hope the Canaries play so you can visit?

DG: I've always wanted to go to Australia. 

SJEQ: Favorite game? 

DG: When Norwich beat Bayern Munich  2-1 in the first leg match of the 1993 UEFA Cup second round. 

SJEQ: What made you miss the April 16, 1983 game?

DG: My sister got married. But she got a divorce so if she were to get married again she would have to have it on a non-game day if she wanted me there. 

SJEQ: Have you missed any notable events for a game?

DG: Just my parent's anniversary one year- but they understood. 

SJEQ: How has your time in the Bay Area been so far?

DG: I got here with my four friends on Tuesday.  We went to San Francisco and went to the Golden Gate Bridge and to Alcatraz.  It's a bit too hot in San Jose for us but it's been great.  We are headed up to Portland next. 

SJEQ: What's the your favorite food you've eaten since you got here?

DG: The pancakes! 

SJEQ: What do you think of MLS?

DG: It's grown quite a bit. I really started to take it seriously when Darren Huckerby came to play for the Earthquakes.

SJEQ: How are the Canaries going to do this season?

DG: Hopefully they'll stay up. I think they will finish 10th.

Ever seen a professional soccer player ride a bull? Now you have -  thanks to Ariat International and Professional Bull Riders

Today's Season Ticket Holder event was one for the books. Fans were asked to come out to Buck Shaw for an open practice with a little twist. 

Four professional cowboys were there to teach the guys a thing or two about bull riding and talk their upcoming Ariat Invitational on September 6-7 at Oracle Arena. In turn, the Quakes shared a few pointers as well. 

The thing we can't get over most, though?

Soccer players in cowboy boots. There really are no words.

Huckerby's most memorable moment in a Quakes jersey? He says it's beating LA Galaxy 3-2

We can't disagree with that. 

Happy GIF(t) of the Week!
