There was unexpected drama from Greece in the now world-famous Roman Chalice cup last night.

Holders, Olympiakos, suffered defeat at the hands of the team with the longest name in the world (probably)

Panthessaloníkios Athlitikós Ómilos Konstantinopolitóà

It’s a name that just trips off the tongue. Incidentally, if it sounds familiar and you are wondering why, don’t be concerned – you’re not going mad.

Panthessaloníkios Athlitikós Ómilos Konstantinopolitóà, who have mercifully abbreviated their name to PAOK, were once holders of the Chalice. They would therefore have been mentioned on my blog in the not too distant past.

One thing is for sure, PAOK must be as proud as punch – or the Greek equivalent, Ouzo – to be getting another go at defending the trophy. They will certainly be hoping to keep hold of it for longer than last time, when they managed a pitiful ONE game (which they lost).

I am sure that they will do their upmost to do so, especially if the club’s owner takes a fancy to the Chalice – apparently he is know to be a tad volatile…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
