I Confess: Programme sickness
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).
I used to sell programmes at Spurs and Arsenal, but when ever Spurs played Arsenal at Highbury I used to phone in sick, then get there early and show my pass to the stewards as if I was working. The gates were not open for another hour, so i had to go to the clock end toilets and hide in the cubicle until the gates opened and then I could sneak out and stand in the clock end.
My Grandpa - God Bless his soul...
Many MANY moons ago when he was a lad (probably in 1920s/30s) he used to jump the Gates (or try) into the ground. Once he was caught by a policeman, who waited for him on the inside of the ground, and merely told him to go back the way he came. Which he did.
And as a personal confession, I have a friend who is an arsenal fan.
I am only young but I have had the terrible time of my life when Spurs lost in the FA cup semis. I had to wear my friend's arsenal kit - I beg for forgiveness, I am SOOOOOOOOOO SORRY
