of the Titans”
to the 9th of September two giants of Athens,
Athens A3H and Smokin’ Balls Football, had never met (well, notwithstanding
the people who do both hash and football) but all that was about to change
with the first, maybe annual, Hash/Football Saturday.
Members of both groups gathered near the town of Lavrio for the first event of the day, a Fair
Cop hash run. Hashers, and those football
players brave enough, set off for a nice seaside run. Up and down cliffs, up a hill, by the odd old
German gun emplacement and back to the start for a quick circle. Several hashers were noted for not actually
showing up for the run (Spanish Fly, Stress Cow) and going to the beach instead.
John, normally a footballer, was introduced to his first hash circle.
Tiggy and UtB had brought along a couple of friends, who, so frightened
by the proceedings left and were never seen again.
is was a short walk to the pitch for the football game.
Players were divided up and play began.
The game featured brilliant ball-handling, wicked shots on goal, diving
saves, but, in the end, the bad guys ended up on top by a score of 5-3, rallying
from a 3-2 halftime deficit.
is was off the beach where many people took advantage of the nice day to go
for a swim. Two other FOT
(friends of Tiggy) Eleni and Demitra joined the group. The days athletic activities not being over,
a group headed off for a spirited game of beach volleyball. Once the sun set it was off to a nearby Fish
