Once Upon: Egil Nygard

Posted on 22 January 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Why I became a Hotspur: A long time ago, my sister and I went away to our grandfather's on a sunny spring day. He had a present for us - a blue bag for me, and a red one for my sister.

We where both happy, because inside it, we found lots of chocolate and fruit. But, best of all, we both got a coffee-cup. I was seven years old at that time (32 now), so I could read, and after a 30 seconds, I found out that I had got a Tottenham cup, my sister a Liverpool one.

At that time, I hadn't even heard about Spurs, but Liverpool, YES! So I begged on my knees to get the "red one", but since my sister was younger and red was a girl colour, she had the last word! So from that day I swore: I'll always support Spurs!!! And guess who I hate?
