Current Event Cat - Greek Soccer

Current Event Cat of the Day: A Greek soccer player is banned for life from playing for the national team after making a Nazi salute to celebrate a winning goal. But wait! AEK Athens midfielder Giorgos Katidis, 20, claims he was unaware what he was doing was a Nazi salute. He insisted he was simply pointing at a team mate in the stands.

“I am not a fascist and would not have done it if I had known what it meant,” Katidis said on his Twitter account.

The governing body of Greek soccer disagreed, calling the salute “a deep insult to all victims of Nazi brutality.”
