Football? But honey, the basketball is on!

Happy Friday, Spurs fans! March Madness has started, which means I have way more sports to watch over the next three weeks than I have time to actually watch.

I need a time-turner. And about six arms. And some cocaine.

I love this. Spurs are willing to shell out some major dough just so they can get traveling supporters to St. James' Park Sports Direct Arena St. James' Park. I'd also love it if they'd charter a flight from Chicago and held a seat for me. First class, please. Legroom is terrible on Tottenham Air. Also, it almost makes it to cruising altitude on every flight before collapsing late and finishing around 7000 ft.

Why can't we get hard players like this at Spurs anymore? All coddled athletes now, no guts, no grit, no concealed weaponry.
