Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Firstly, my apologies to all those who were unable to attend our party on Boxing Day. However, as I said, it was an impromptu affair which was arranged by telephone same day !
The three `stalwarts` attended - Maniac Kanka Harun, Battle Damaged Kanka Damon and Eski Kanka Jim.
We met in The Cappadokia Bar for an exchange of Christmas presents. Eski Kanka received the new ANKARAGUCU all yellow top from Maniac Kanka - my wife started to call me a `canary` when she saw it, that was until I explained the meaning of this in Turkey !!
Maniac Kanka received two Scotland tops from Eski Kanka. One had a Lion rampant motif and the other the Scottish Saltire (the Saint Andrew's Cross of the Scottish flag). Two happy kankas !
What about Battle Damaged Kanka who was almost in tears having apparently been forgotten in all the festivities ?!
Well, knowing how much effort Battle Damaged Kanka puts into his dress code (you know his fetish for gloves !!!), Eski Kanka offered him his new black and green Hibernian gloves. However, this kind offer was rejected on the grounds that he might be mistaken for a Denizli supporter ! A poor excuse me thinks !
So, I have decided to get him a new up-to-date ANKARAGUCU scarf NEXT Christmas !! He could be mistaken for a Fenerbahce supporter in the one he is wearing at present. Shock Horror !!!
We then decampted to a new pub on the same street which has recently opened. No ordinary pub this one !
The name is `Lacivert` and it is run by some of the guys from the infamous ANKARAGUCU group Anti-X.
`Lacivert` may well become a new meeting place if you all agree ?!
The Kankies in particular will be happier in `Lacivert` I reckon. It has TWO real, clean, sweet smelling toilets and one of them is for ladies !
Eski Kanka is particulary happy with it for 2 reasons.....
1. It is an EFES pub !! and..... 2. The music is modern and none of the weirdo modern jazz rubbish served up in the Cappadokia !!
There was also lots of singing going on between the kankas and the Anti-X boys. We may have been outnumbered, but we were not outsung ! Another important point is that Battle Damaged Kanka's repertoire of ANKARAGUCU songs is now pretty impressive !
So, we poured ourselves out of there...... late....... a wee bit under the influence ! Who said that Tuborg was stronger than EFES ? Maniac, defo not !!!
Roll on the 6th of January and Turkish Cup footie yesssssss.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
