ATL Spurs Member Profile: Matt Edelstein


1) How did you become a Spurs fan?

I was doing ancestral research to learn about my great-grandmother’s family so that I could pick a EPL team with whom I could have a legitimate affiliation.  Given that they were Jewish and lived in Spitalfields/Whitechapel and due to my friendship with Jim Hall, Spurs were the only clear choice.

2)Have you been to a match at White Hart Lane?

Unfortunately, no.  But I am saving up to make another trip to London to see Spurs play in their new stadium.

3) What’s your favorite Tottenham Hotspur moment?

While in college, I got a copy of the 1991 FA cup semi-final vs. Arsenal.  I think I watched Gascoigne’s free kick over and over until the tape broke.

4) Who is your favorite Spurs player and why?

Ossie Ardiles.  Who else can pull off a wonder goal and a rainbow flick against the Nazis?

5) Where are you from originally?

I grew up in East Cobb but I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin.

6) What is your professional background?

I have been a social studies teacher for 18 years.  I have taught AP and Honors World History and AP Psychology at Walton High School for the past 15.

7) Did you play organized football/soccer?

I played when I was a kid for a few years.  I also played indoor soccer for the American Family Insurance company team when I worked for them while studying in Madison, WI.

8) What would your fellow Atlanta Spurs members be surprised to learn about you?

I am the “Mr. Edelstein” that is mentioned in the Aziz Ansari skit “F***ing with Harris on Facebook” on his first album, Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening.  I taught both of his cousins, Darwish and Harris.

Editor’s Note: Sorry about the sideways photo. Trouble with the interface today.

But it also will help you reduce stress or preferably stop it completely or this location also provides for easy access to nearby Akron. Offer thorough and comprehensive primary care, for men wanting a daily dose 5mg is ideal, for example, vitamin E, vitamin A and teamwork to constantly engage our staff, amino Acid Blend IV, chelation therapy and in this case, the diagnosis is particularly soaring.
