Bubbas & ‘Ballers: Tottenham Hotspur
It rains all the time in North London. Not just some of the time. All of the fugging time.
Heroically, Tottenham Hotspur FC have turned the inadequacies of the British weather to their advantage and appear to thrive on excessive moisture. We were initially alerted to this when the squad undertook some rather interesting ‘bonding’ activities in the off season, but last weekend they took it up a notch – by refusing to allow a torrential downpour to dampen their bubba parade.
Whether their kids were as enthused by the proceedings is another matter entirely.
And if this wasn’t enough to convince us of their love of the wet stuff, last night’s victory against Manchester City (ensuring Champions League football for the Spurs next season) saw the players booby-trapping coach Harry Redknapp just before his post match interview. With a bucket of ice cold water.
The more eagle eyed amongst you will have noted David Bentley’s side thigh exposure during the festivities.
Side note: we hope everyone stocked up on Nurofen and dark sunglasses for the morning after.
A massive congratulations to the boys for breaking into the “big” time!
