I Confess: Married bliss or miss?
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).
This has to be the ultimate sin. This year I am getting married... to an Arsenal fan. After several blazing arguments about our teams, we have now agreed that we cannot speak about each other's team, comment on them when on telly or when results come in. This seems to be the only way to maintain peace. Aside from his misguided judgement on this, he's perfect in every other way!
I was going out with this girl, and she supported A******L. Anyway, she got tickets for a Spurs vs Ar****l at their's. I was quiet the whole game as we had to sit in their end. But we scored and I ripped of my jumper to reveal a white and blue Spurs top. I was duly marched from the ground to the applause - A*****l went on to win and the girl never forgave me and we split up. A woman is for Christmas - but The Spurs are for life!
Come on you Spurs
Last year on my 28th birthday, my mate (a gooner) got me a ticket to the derby at Highbury. I couldn't refuse and had to endure the 2-0 defeat. I was the only person in the North stand who didn't cheer when they scored the first goal and got a few odd looks. So to make my shame worse I actually clapped the second goal (to avoid being thrown off the balcony). After the game my mate took me to a pub where all the gooners were celebrating, I just wanted to die and used alcohol to drown my sorrows. I've supported Spurs for as long as I can remember and will be at the Newcastle game on the 30th so hopefully this will make up for some of my sin.
