The National Hellenic Society’s Washington DC Chapter (NHS DC) held a sports legends luncheon at Kellari Taverna DC on March 9, 2016 with special guest speakers Jim Daopoulos: Former NFL Supervisor of Officiating, NFL Official and ESPN Commentator, and Larry Michael: Senior Vice-President and Executive Producer of the Washington Redskins. NHS members and guests had a great time and gained an incredible insider’s insight of the most popular game and league in the United States. Special thanks to Laura Evans, Anchor of WTTG Fox 5 News, who moderated the discussion.
Ancient Greece’s society had an unmatched passion for athletics, which is reflected on the ubiquitous belief that man’s development of mind, body and spirit were interlinked, and that victory ultimately served as a testament to virtue.
Greek Americans of today continue the incredible legacy of our ancient forebears, each understanding victory and reflecting that their achievements bring us all glory and pride.
