I discovered a cool one the other week, cool and pretty random.

Nyjah Huston.

Most people in the UK won't have heard of him but he's arguably the best pro skateboarder in the world and a Nike SB athlete.

From wiki: Nyjah Imani Huston is an American professional skateboarder and was the overall champion at the Street League Skateboarding competition series in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2017, and 2019. He is also the highest paid skateboarder in the world.

He recently skated a demo event in Peru and wore his Spurs shirt as he did it. Now that's a mother fuckin yiddo right there.

Here's the video of the event. Skip to 1 minute in:
Why were there never any fit female skaters when I used to skate?
In fact, there didn't seem to be any female skaters at all, fit or not!
Not fair.

Miki from Lush (now Piroshka) and her bloke Moose (who was in the band Moose) chatted with me about the David Seamen will be disappointed about that single they put out with Simon from the Cocteau Twins when we beat them in the 1991 FA cup semi..As a fan of all 3 bands its safe to say I was loving it

How can the list be complete if it doesn't include Anthony Costa from Blue.
What ever happened to his podcast? It just seemed to stop one day with no explanation. I assume they announced it on social media or something but I'm not on any of that.

Dixon of Dock Green creator Lord Ted Willis was a Spurs fan. Those old enough might remember seeing him as a guest fan on the the BBC football show Quizball around 1966/67.

Sam Fox is definitely a gooner, despite appearing on the front of 90 Minutes in a Spurs jersey c.1996. (Wasn't she standing beside Sheringham and the headline said something about "Tottenham's twin strike force"..? Which they'd hardly try now, of course.)
