The Philosophers' Football Match - Monty Puthon (1972)

Another cool production from the mighty Monty Python collective that is still timely due to the European Football championship and the next match for my country, Greece. It was taken place in the Grünwalder Stadion during the Munich Olympics of 1972. The funny thing is that actually there were no football players but philosophers representing Germany and Greece, except great Franz Beckenbauer for the German team. It originally featured in the second Monty Python's Fliegender Zirkus episode and was later included in Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1982). The thin line between athletics and philosophy has been edged by the marvelous comedians.
