I'm Jay -short for Janath Gamage.
A die-hard Bayern Munich fan (Mia San Mia!),
glad to have been alive when we won the holy treble both times.
Basketball was the first love of my life, then came my wife.
Always waiting for the next Final Fantasy game.
I like to believe my jokes are ahead of it's time.
I'd prefer a shot over a pint. Music is life. So is Sushi.
