Greece easily defeated Denmark, 103-63, at Livadia in a qualifier for the 2003 European Basketball Championships. Once upon a time, you couldn’t drop a pin in the stands when major sides were still capable of packing in rival fans shoulder to shoulder. At most, the opposing supporters would ridicule each other with well-intended jokes. Nowadays, they prefer breaking heads instead.
