Greece, Sam

Greece, Sam. Marcil/De Maisonneuve, Montreal, 2011

Why Greece? I asked.

“My family is Greek and I got the shirt when I visited Greece after they had won European Championship.”

Yes, Greece’d won the Euro, still hard to believe it. No matter what tactics they used to get there, not always a joy to watch, it is an admirable thing. Sam is a great kid, born in Montreal, but proudly shares his origins. He’s been a frequent guest in our home, a great company. Grčka (Greece, as it is called in Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian) appears even more mythical when called in one of these South Slavic languages. Go Grčka!
