Greece vs Germany is important

The mighty Greece play Germany this evening in a quarter final that fans of the economy around the world will enjoy, as the troubled Hellenic nation try to prove a point to Angela Merkel, who is going to be there.

 

Gdansk is absolutely rammed full of German people, and I know this because I am actually here. As in there. In Gdasnk. I'll prove it.

 

To the Greeks this game means slightly more than just winning a football game, it's pretty much a way to say "GET IT UP YE" to the German nation trying to buy all their stuff. I'm not going to even pretend I know enough about politics to offer an opinion on that, all I know is that I plan to get really drunk and watch Greek people punt a ball into the box and defend for 90 minutes. It's what my Grandad would have always wanted. He would have said "JJ, even though I'm English, I want you to get blackout drunk and watch Greece defend against Germany for 90 minutes." and so that's what I will do. If you don't hear from me again, tell my Mother, "hello"
