WHW - Phil and Nicola

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).

Myself and Nicola are Spurs fans living and working in San Francisco, California. We have been living here since October 2001 and will be here with work till 2004. It's a great place but they don't show enough Football for my liking - just American Football which is 'pants' by comparison.

We had to ask a passerby to take this photo of us in front of the bridge, and just as we got the shirts on for the photo sure enough a couple walked passed, so we asked them. There was us expecting some tourists from a small town in the middle of Kansas or something, and it turned it turned out they were from Islington and were Arsenal fans - how's your luck!

Anyway he refused to take the photo and got his wife to do it instead. Being an Arsenal fan, I guess it might explain the shoddy camera work.

Anyway I have been a Spurs fan since I was 9 years old, and have been to some excellent games and some tragic games at the Lane, notably the 7-2 drumming of Southampton and the 6-1 home defeat from Chelsea.

And before you ask, yes that is our surname.

Come on you Spurs!!
