I Confess: Gazza's Mars
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).
Confession from Mr Grant
When I was at school, Gazza & Paul Stewart visited to take part in a penalty shoot-out against our school goalie (This was in the era of Gazza & Mars Bars). When the shoot-out was over and everyone was scrambling to get their autographs I decided it would be fun to nick Gazza'a Mars Bar from the pocket of his joggers.
I'm not a very good 'tea-leaf' and he rumbled me. He told me that if I were to do that round 'his way' I would've had my hands cut off!
I still ate his Mars Bar. Sorry Gazza, it was me mate, and my hands are still intact.
When I was about 15 I lost a bet at school and had to go and watch the Gooners with my ‘red mates’. During the game Spurs were 2-0 down to Forest away and Arsenal were winning 2-0. It was worst day of my life.
I went into their toilet at half time and clinched my Spurs shirt that was on underneath my coat and prayed. It was so hot by now but I could not take coat off obviously.
Anyway full time score? Forest 2 Spurs 3 and Arsenal only managed a feeble draw at home. JUSTICE! THERE IS A GOD.
My friend got me tickets to see Arsenal-Spurs and, as he was a gooner, we sat in their end. We lost 3-2 and I was the only fan in that end with my head in my hands.
No one noticed though. Every time I see Bergkamp sliding on his knees on the MOTD titles I can always see myself in that corner cringing.
