It’s 10.30am New York time on Sunday August 23rd.
A minute or two ago Tottenham Hotspur beat West Ham 2-1 to go top of the English Premier League, for the next few days at least. By the time that changes we will know if England have beaten Australia at cricket and thereby regained the Ashes.
If this happy event occurs I believe it will be the first time in my lifetime that the Ashes were won when Tottenham led the league.
It’s a very beautiful thought.
