Germany vs. Greece

This afternoon,  Germany will face Greece in the Euro quarterfinal match.  Tensions are already running high betwen these two counties as Germany continues to impose austerity measures and the European community hangs in the balance.

The two teams, however, met in an even more momentous game back in 1972.

The German lineup was loaded: Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Franz Beckenbauer. But the Greeks were able to counter with the likes of Plato, Socrates and Archimedes. Germany tried a daring substitution, which failed to break any paradigms, but it was Greece that had the Eureka moment.
