LARISSA, Greece – The world’s oldest profession is giving a whole new meaning to love of the game. Players on a cash-strapped Greek soccer team now wear pink practice jerseys with the logos “Villa Erotica” and “Soula’s House of History,” two bordellos it recruited as sponsors after drastic government spending cuts left the country’s sports clubs facing ruin. Other teams have also turned to unconventional financing. One has a deal with a local funeral home and others have wooed kebab shops, a jam factory and producers of Greece’s trademark feta cheese. But the amateur Voukefalas club — whose players include pizza delivery guys, students, waiters and a bartender — has raised eyebrows with its flamboyant sponsorship choice. ”Unfortunately, amateur football has been abandoned by almost everyone,” said Yiannis Batziolas, the club’s youthful chairman, who runs a travel agency and is the team’s backup goalkeeper. “It’s a question of survival.”
Say what you want about soccer players. They’re pussies. They flop. They’re bougie smug assholes.
But goddamit they have a great rapport with whores.
Just a mutual understand that exists between prostitutes and soccer players. A symbiotic relationship – European whores need them to stay in business, and European soccer players need to whores to cheat on their gorgeous WAGs because they are spoiled dickheads. And cocaine is a third party that benefits from both. Its a little ecosystem of drugs, sex and money that exists in perfect harmony. So when hookers see a soccer team about to go down, its like someone is kicking out one of the legs of their tripod. Without soccer players, you’ve just got a bunch of whores doing cocaine making no money. Its in everyone’s best interest to loan these guys some cash to keep the circle of life flowing.
PS – Maybe Cashman can go negotiate with the whores in Hunts Point under the Bruckner to help bail them out of the Arod deal.
