    Ah, I forgot to report something we learned for our team from our Forest friends yesterday (once again, guys, lovely to have met you).

    The colours of Olympiacos were supposedly chosen by one of our founders, G. Andrianopoulos, because of his love for Arsenal (he had studied in an English college during World War I. What we didn't know is that Arsenal wore red and white because of you.

    So, by association, you are responsible for our choice of colours.

    Nothing fancy. I just love the series. It also reminds me my youth ages in middle 80s.
    Moreover, Blackadder series was one of the first dvds I bought back then when people were buying and renting dvds

    They wore our red shirts but to differentiate the teams, tied handkerchiefs to the sleeves, hence arsenal still having white sleeves on their shirts.

    Do people actually smash plates in Greece or is that a myth?

    It was like that many years ago. Now it's extremely uncommon.

    That was a thing decades ago. With one notable exception:

    I'm on a business trip close to Thessaloniki. I return from work exhausted and go to eat at the hotel's restaurant. The waiter warned me that there would be noise later on. Soon after, a group of elderly Greek ladies arrived, aged from 65 to something like 90, I mean some of them could barely walk. Then I saw a guy, who I later found out was their tour operator, coach driver and entertainer, unloading sound equipment, a guitar and keyboards. I went to my room. The guy started singing old hits, terribly, and play the guitar, terribly, or the harmonium (that was even worse). The volume picked up, and the sound of clapping, singing and dancing by the old ladies became louder and louder. And then came the distinctive sound of plates being smashed. Many plates. And the old ladies shouting opa with every smashed plate.

    The fact that I could not see them made the whole experience even more surreal. Next morning, the group was up for breakfast, very early and in mint condition.

    Grannies on steroids.

    If it keeps Lefkasman off the forum then I'm all for it.

    No serious damages (and no major injuries), but the epicentre was close to the surface, so it was felt like a very very big one.

    „Big“ Evangelos dropped his wallet?

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“
