I wrote about AEK Athens earlier this year, as such it is fitting to put their shirt on this blog. I got it on my first visit to Thessaloniki in 2006, when I was—for some reason—unable to find either an Aris or PAOK shirt. The best part of this shirt to me is the Greek flag on the arm. It is a lightweight Adidas fabric sporting a design typical of the year, the LG and Diners Club sponsors are both printed on in a quality fashion. Once while wearing this shirt at home in Rhode Island someone called out to me in Greek. When I didn’t understand and told him I was part Turkish he just walked away—I suppose he didn’t understand the brotherhood that football is.
