Atlanta Spurs Supporters Club

IMG_1077

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.

First game at our new home pub!!! #atlspurs #coys #thfc @mannysgrantpark @harrywinks @spursofficial ...

After an exhaustive search evaluating pubs all over Metro Atlanta which also saw us hosting trial games at a number of potential venues, we are happy to finally announce that Atlanta Spurs has a new permanent home... Manny’s Grant Park!

The ownership and staff at Manny’s are super excited to partner with us to make Manny’s the go to destination for Spurs matches in Atlanta. We now look forward to decorating our new home, settling in, and getting back to the business of watching Spurs together.
This period of temporary homelessness has coincided with a downturn in fortunes on the field so we hope the opposite is now true and we look forward to seeing everybody this weekend to celebrate the start of better times ahead.
COYS!! #atlspurs @mannysgrantpark
