I Confess - Keano pointer
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).
Well it is not really a confession, more a story which should lead me being bought many drinks from all Spurs fans. Last year - June/July - I was in Agia Napa with a friend of mine, I had moved to Cyprus in 2001 because of work. Well we were all in a pub (name escapes me) and we met Robbie Keane in there with a few of his mates. Well by this time I had had a few beers and my speech was very slury to say the least. I walked up to Robbie and started talking to him and one of the conversations was that I said to him come on sign for Spurs we need someone like you there - he just brushed it off and said well you never knows what happens in football. I responded by saying come on sign for us and I will buy you a beer. Well what happens? - he signs for Spurs and, by the way, I still owe Robbie that beer. Maybe the next time I come across to England I will.
Somewhere lying in my dusty loft is a picture of myself as a baby. What makes this particular photograph more embarrasing than normal is the fact that I am wearing a knitted Arsenal top - lovingly made by my nan as a joke at my father's expense. Little did she realise that I am to carry the embarrasment myself for the rest of my life...
I supported Stoke for a week when I lost out on a pretty easy bet - Spurs to beat west ham. Unfortunately we lost, and I will always hang my head in shame at the thought that I once supported Stoke!
