The Hurriyet Daily News, my favourite english language Turkish newspaper, is one of the many media outlets on the planet that are running the story of Giorgos Katidis. The 20 year old is a football, that is foreign talk for soccer, player in the elite Greek league. Picking up the story, The Huffington Post notes that "...gave a Nazi salute after scoring the go-ahead goal Saturday in AEK's 2-1 victory over Veria in the Greek league. "
This gesture, one that Mr. Katidis swears he did not know was connected to fascism or the Nazi's or even Hogan's Heroes, has got him banned from Greece's national soccer team for life.
You thought Don Cherry was outrageous.
