PART 3: FACES IN THE CROWD: LITTLE ROCK From 47.22

Josh Hill from Little Rock Spurs in Arkansas, USA, which became an official supporters club just this season, talks about his relatively new found love of Spurs. This love affair started somewhat esoterically in 2012, when Chelsea knocked us out of the CL by beating Bayern Munich. A London based Spurs supporting mate helped him see the light. He says he loves us, in part, because he admires sporting teams that do things the right way!

Josh also shares this great quote… “It’s easy to get passionate with Tottenham. Other clubs you just go through the motions. But with Tottenham you just want to learn more. You want to engross yourself with everything the club does. Every kick. Every blow of the ref's whistle. You gotta live and die on it!” He also shares the tale of how was on Jeopardy for 7 nights in a row, and won US $160,000 for his efforts. That’s enough for a season ticket for life and a boat load of cheese too!
