Thursday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links For October 17, 2013

Michael Steele

Tottenham news and notes, with government.

Happy Thursday, Spursland! Huzzah, the American government shut down has ended. You Australians can stop mocking us at least until the new year, but lets think of who is hurt by this. No, not Ted Cruz, I mean Skipjack. He has been off since this started and good lord does he get rip roaring drunk every night. Since there was no deal until later in the evening, he was totally half in the bag, maybe all the way in the bag, and now he has to get up today and drive his governmentally employed ass down to DC. Sucks to be you, bro.

And now the "news"
