you all know i'm greek right?
100% in fact... but all that basically means is that i'm loud, wear a lot of black, have a nosy big family, eat feta cheese and lamb, can get very tan in the summer, have dark hair and big boobs.
this past monday night my friend pete who writes the sports blog cleveland frowns, and also a fellow greek, invited me to the cavs preseason game at the Q verse greece's team olympiakos.
pete also invited a couple other local sports bloggers in scott from waiting for next year and vince from scene magazine - which was perfect cause i could not only geek out about the cavs/greeks but also about bloggers. nerd alert.
to say that the game was a greek fest would be an understatement.
i was literally bouncing around the arena visiting friends and family. but while i was busy bouncing vince experienced quite the hilarious "it's all greek to me" situation - read about it here.
halftime brought the st haralambos hellenic dancers on the court which was extra special because, 1. st haralambos is my church in canton, 2. i actually was a member of the dance troupe many moons ago, 3. i had friends/family that were performing
talk about a blast from the past - here's a pic of the junior dancers from the early '90's. i'm not in it, i think i was in the senior group by now, but my sissy is standing dead center.
halftime came and went and the cavs starters began to gravitate to the bench because the lead was so demanding.
after the game we walked to la strada on east 4th for "greek night".
it was pretty packed actually. there was a band, too many cheesy greek men to count (a couple normal ones too), lots of champagne (including a broken glass courtesy of me), one mr. anderson varejao and an acrobatic blogger.
just a normal monday night in cleveland kids.
