<B>From Michael Hendricks, Canada: </B>I was a young Canadian travelling Europe in 1988/89, and around Easter time I found myself in London.<P class=MsoNormal>Having never been to an English football match before I bought a ticket to see Spurs play Liverpool.<P class=MsoNormal>I was very intimidated by the fans and their passion and intensity, and to be honest, I didn't even know which side's supporters I was surrounded by.<P class=MsoNormal>I played it safe and kept quiet, but I knew right then that I was hooked on Spurs for life.<P class=MsoNormal>While I don't get too many Premier matches in Canada (two or three a week), I remain an avid fan and live and die with the Spurs.<P class=MsoNormal>I know that next time in London I will definitely be seeing a Spurs match.<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
