Over the weekend we welcomed a new Kanka, Stein, to the world of Ankara football. Our Norwegian friend hadn't even been to a match but had already bought himself a season ticket for Genclerbirligi.
A connaisseur of the amber nectar, a devoted fan of the round ball and in Ankara for at least three years I guess we will be seeing Stein quite a bit down at the Chopin and then on the terraces.
The problem is we couldn't figure out a Kanka name for him. I'll list a few of the suggestions that were made and would ask you all to comment. As always, the final decision in this democracy will be made by Sir Eski Kanka and myself but we would appreciate your feedback (a bit like leaving comments on the Saudi Arabian government's website).
So here are some of the suggestions:
Lemming Kanka (for some reason we thought the lemming was the national animal of Norway)
Whale-eating Kanka (Stein enjoys nothing more than a good whale-meat sandwich)
Asker Kanka (Stein's birthplace was could Asker, this one may cause confusion in Turkey)
Bald Kanka (an accurate description of Stein's hirsuteness)
Italian Kanka (he has an Italian wife)
There were some others but I can't remember them. Can anyone else who was there help.
EDIT: Oooops. Looks like I spelt our Norwegian friend's name wrong throughout the post. It should be Stian, not Stein. Stupid me.
