    At today's game ...

    ... during half time they introduced the surviving members of the 1961 double winning team. Amazing to see them in the flesh and looking for the most part fairly sprightly.

    Shame that neither Danny Blanchflower nor the great Billy Nick were there but they were represented by members of their family. The FA Cup and the old League Trophy were on show too. Fantastic moment and if luck goes our way it will be repeated come the end of the season.

    You know the Chas n Dave song - altogether now "It's lucky for Spurs when the year ends in 1".

    • That sounds like the life, OF! The West Coast loves its golf, no mistake, and they're not too snobby about who plays on them...you can even get eighteen holes at Pebble Beach as long as you've got $400 and a caddy! I played Lincoln Park in San Francisco two and a half years ago,and although it was February and the course wasn't in great shape, there were views in every direction...the ocean, The Golden Gate Bridge, the city and the bay - real WOW! factor!

    • Congrats High Road - now I am out of school I am hoping to get back into playing golf again - haven't really played at all for the past 5 years, so I'm not even thinking about what I might shoot first time out. I am hoping to be working in an ER down on the coast where there are a lot of very nice old courses (one is the oldest course in Oregon - an old links course right along the Pacific Ocean) - There are also some great salmon fishing rivers (another pastime I have not practiced for many years). As I will probably be working 3 * 12's, I hope to have 4 days off each week to fish, golf, and generally have fun - little hiking and a little mountain biking.

    • There are several of us "seasoned" supporters on the board that were lucky enough to get to watch that team play Kentish ....
