So I was on a ferry at Boston's Long Wharf yesterday, enjoying the weather and heading to a former island military fort in Boston Harbor on George's Island. As we were leaving our captain was telling us stuff about the surrounding area and he mentioned the yacht of a British businessman next to us. He was telling us facts like his net value (he said 3bn but its actually 4.2) and how he accrued it ('currency trading') and things like this. I was only half paying attention however, what with the nice sun, cool breeze, and hot girl next to me. The name did stick out to me at first. But after initially thinking of the boxer, I dismissed it as it was a pretty vanilla-sounding name.
But on the way back the captain again referred to the yacht and this time I paid more attention and I noticed a small white flag with a cockerel on it. My eyes bulged. Wtf?? Is that a Tottenham flag?? I immediately tried to remember what the guy's name was. I asked my girl and we couldn't think of it. So I looked it up and it's the yacht of none other than Joe Lewis, the owner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
If you look on the bow you can see the flag, although it's a bit far away. And here's an article about him docking in Boston. Pretty crazy coincidence but I regret not throwing a rock at it, as a Chelsea fan (although in my jersey I would've been the top suspect). But if I were a Tottenham fan, I'd have asked to come aboard so I could party with these guys!
