Monday Morning Hoddle Of Coffee: Tottenham Hotspur News And Links November 19, 2012

TheRoosevelts makes some ill fated decisions, rubbish transfer rumors are starting to appear, and the SEC rules everything around us.

Dear God What Have I Gotten Myself Into?
Dear God What Have I Gotten Myself Into?
Clive Rose

Happy Monday Spursland! Surely at this point due to the lack of spelling errors, you realize that I am not TheRoosevelts. Additionally, with the lack of Dempsey bashing and communist sympathizing, I am not Ashlock. Indeed, it is I, Petrilli. TheRoosevelts asked me to fill in after realizing that letting his affair with the love of his life's mother get in between them was a terrible mistake, went to interrupt her wedding, and ran off with her to a future of happiness and wedded bliss. You can tell these two are completely in love with each other and I wish them both the best.


Don't forget, only 36 days until Christmas.

And now for your Tottenham News and Links...

Into The Abyss - The CFB Top 25 Reviewed

Standing on the precipice of a BCS title shot and an undefeated season, Oregon peered over the edge, sneezed, and after slipping plummeted headlong into the abyss with a 17-14 loss to Stanford in Autzen Stadium. How did this happen? The usual Stanford victory march: marauding defensive linemen, Shayne Skov crashing plays to pieces in the backfield, and Stanford tight end Zach Ertz catching a touchdown while standing on his head.

Puddles copes just like you and I do: kummerspeck, the German word for emotional eating.
