It’s 2012 and if there is anything on the minds of the entire world it’s Greece. Unfortunately, like I have said in previous articles, it is all for the wrong reasons. We have gone from being a country that was the envy of all the world to a nation in which is the punch line for every pun in every satire show all over the world. This has to stop. How do we do it? DOUBLE OR NOTHING. Yes I said it, double or nothing. Let’s put all the money that Greece owes down on the game this Friday in the Euro Cup 2012 quarter final against Germany. As you all have figured out by this point, I love making lists of all of my thoughts, so I am going to continue to do the same on this one.
Greece beating Russia 1-0 on Saturday – We actually won a game, and it was the first one that we have won since our 2004 championship run. This one was a special one nonetheless. The Russians, who were unbeaten for 16 straight matches fell on a hungry and angry Greek side.

They came out angry and hungry and looked like a different team, then Karagounis scored a late 1st half goal. Familiar? I think so.
Russia losses and so does the Communist Party – After Greece beat Russia, the country faced another tough backs-against-the-wall situation. An election this past Sunday. You would think that this is a no-brainer for the people who created the system, but it is more complicated than that. Either way the Communist Party, SYRIZA, almost beat out the Democratic Party, NEA DEMOKRATIA in Sunday’s election. Can you guys see the parallel with this? Greece = Democracy, Russia = Former Commies? 1-0 Democracy folks. Just saying…..
ETSI PIDANE AUTOI POU SAS XROSTANE – Direct translation = This is how we ***** those who we owe….. Greece vs. Germany. This has been the main focus and the basis of stability for the global world markets. Now it’s turning to soccer. There are few things that need to be added as we dive head first into this.
The German team is comprised of players who aren’t German. ALL OF THEM. It should be called the United Nations German National Soccer team, and Kofi Annan should be their head coach. Greece is full of actual Greek blood minus our coach, but who’s counting. Pride baby.Continue Reading
