Andrew. Tottenham. "It's my team and I like the shirt."
Tottenham. Andrew. Ridge/Clarke, Chicago, 2011

Why Spurs? I asked.

“It’s my team and I like the shirt.”

I found the answer a bit odd since once you like the club you must love the shirt regardless of how ugly, or beautiful, it could be. But there was no opportunity to talk about Andrew’s motives a bit further. He, just like the rest of this Chicago crew shows up every Saturday morning at 7h30, throughout the year, to play. Respect! And he is my first Tottenham fan. I have to admit though, watching them play from afar, I thought the guy was running around the left wing in a Lazio shirt.



  1. I too am a Spurs fan and on any given day you can find me in a Spurs something….socks, t-shirt, jacket. I understand Andrew’s comment. Yes you love your teams badge and kit and you wear it with pride, but some you like better than others. This particular kit is one of my favs. COYS!!!
