Hi, Hoddlers!

Above is Karen Hills, one of Spurs’ head coaches. She joined the club in 2007, and guided the team to promotion last season.

Ramble of the Day

It’s time for another question, one that combines my clear passion for football and food: If you could add one food or drink to the list of regular stadium food and drink items, which would you pick?

I could choose so many different things — a good taco, a quality cup of bubble tea, or some nice sushi, to name only a few choices. I know, truly, if I had to pick just the one item, it has to be a good cup of coffee.

It might be a matter of geography or just the fact that coffee connoisseurs aren’t in the business of providing stadium food, but I’ve never had a half-decent cup of coffee, let alone a good one. There are many times where I’ve been to matches at a decent coffee drinking hour, and it makes for a good option over a two-plus hour period. If I’m already overpaying for other stadium food, I won’t mind overpaying for a good cup of coffee.

tl;dr: Pick a food or drink you wish you could find in a stadium.
