Tuesday morning Hoddle of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur news and links for March 26, 2013

Bryn Lennon

Daily Tottenham Hotspur links, today on Lewis Holtby, Walter Tull and the England Under-21s.

Happy Tuesday Spursland! Welcome to the doldrums guys. Still not a lot of Spurs stuff happening, and March Madness has the night off. Basically not a ton is going on so let us take a moment and salute a great hero, Private Emily Tomkins of the 4 Medical Regiment. She saved a comrade in arms after his legs blew off, dragged him to safety all while ignoring his demands that she flash him since he assumed he was dying, last request and all. You go girl.

And now the "news"

Report: Gay NFL Player Strongly Considering Coming Out, Continue To Play-OutSports

If this person, whoever he is reading this (and like to think he is) Don't do it for anyone else, do it for yourself. Yes if you do it it would be a great example to a lot of young people coming up in sports not knowing how to handle being gay and that would be great, but do it for yourself. This is about you and who you are, not who anybody else wants you to be.

BTW Outsports Exists

Which is pretty cool.
