Do you like Necco Sweethearts™ (aka Love Hearts™, conversation hearts, etc.)? Those little sugary candy hearts with the cute messages like "BE MINE" and "UR CUTE"? Shut up, of course you do. The sixth grader that you once were totally remembers that time when you worked up your courage and wrote out a love-letter to that hottie Becky Hofkamp, replacing key words with Sweethearts, and then slipped it into her locker, only to have her then laugh in your face and tell the entire school about you are "a total lame-o." Or was that just me? Junior high sucked.
While I rarely spell out love-letters in candy hearts anymore, I confess that I still love them, even the lame ones like "FAX ME" and "UR RAD." So this Valentine's Day, I thought I'd spend a little time and try and answer the following question: If you were making candy hearts for Tottenham fans, what would they look like?
1. The obvious.
If you're going to make a Spurs conversation hearts collection, these are the ones you absolutely HAVE to include.
2. Player related.
We love our Tottenham players. These are just a few of the candy heart possibilities.
3. When Spurs suck.
Let's face it, Spurs are Spurs and although we all love the club they're going to disappoint us. Just like in a real relationship, AMIRITE? It would be foolish to make a set of Spurs-centric Sweethearts without including a few of these.
4. Inside Jokes.
For the Commentariat member close to your heart.
5. For the Cartilage Free Captain Staff.
Because everyone needs a personalized heart.
6. Miscellaneous football.
Because it's not always about Spurs, right?
So, these have potential. Kickstarter campaign, anyone?
