Lunchtime Distraction: Put “gingerbread houses” on short list of things Clint Dempsey can’t do


“It’s very abstract … We take it to the next level, you know?”

That was Clint Dempsey’s way trying to salvage a gingerbread house his group of four Spurs teammates woefully failed to assemble.

The scene: Tottenham has players break off into three teams with the task of putting together the houses. Group with the nicest house wins and gets a chance to present it at a Spurs community outreach event. The losers have to gorge themselves on frosting before André Villas-Boas’s next training session.

So who won? Well, check it out yourself, but suffice to say the U.S. is well represented in the building edible model houses world.
