Message:  Memories of Mickey can have the strangest of sponsors.

There was a story on today's 'Football Focus' - a BBC programme that covers football (soccer) in the UK - about the last ever game being played at White Hart Lane by Tottenham Hotspur, an historic stadium, home to a famously successful team with a great legacy.

The music playing over the piece was Elvis's rendition of 'American Trilogy' and so my thoughts turned to Mickey and his London connection via Swiss Cottage Place (about 8 miles from the football ground).

It's like some strange seven degrees of separation thing and it made me smile, as memories of Mickey so often do.
