New, comments

Let’s soak it all in before we move on.

Hey, everyone!

Let’s keep the celebration going just one more day.

Ramble of the Day

Somewhat unfortunately, Tottenham will play again tomorrow. That means that when I start Monday’s Hoddle, all of the pictures from Wednesday’s match will be far, far away. I wrote yesterday’s Hoddle during the game, which means I couldn’t dedicate the space to the good times, but I figured I’d just insert all the lovely pictures that will otherwise (probably) never get used on the site into the ramble. This one comes minus commentary (mostly).

Shall we take a trip down very recent memory lane?

The last one’s my personal favorite.

tl;dr: Back to Wednesday!
