Fan blog of Partizan Sports Society (JSD Partizan) in Belgrade, Serbia. Football, basketball, volleyball, handball, ice hockey, water polo, news, players, all that are a matter of curiousity.

Partizan sports society (JSD Partizan) celebrated the 70th anniversary of its foundation on 4th October. For this occasion the team rent National Theater (Narodno pozorište) in Belgrade to remember these 7 decades in the proper way. Former players were invited as well as the current squad and for great (and not too pleasant) surprise there were politicians, too. Here are a huge bunch of photos taken at the event together with a long video, because RTS 2 broadcasted it all live and since then it has been uploaded to Youtube, of course.
Mateja Kežman arrives
Omnem dimitte spem, o vos intrantes - leave all hope, ye who enter. Even if you’re Albert Nagy personally, because if you want to get into the Hall of Fame, you have to get through Miloš Vazura...
...and Milorad Vučelić
Did you notice the sickening colour of Vazura’s face? What about those panda-sized circles around his eyes?
Saša Ilić and his family
Marko Jevtović with his parents
On this photo there is a legendary former player of Partizan hidden. Send your answers to us and the winner gets the footprint of Zoran Popović as a prize
There were all kinds of people. Insignificant ones...
...and well... these guys.
Partizan’s management is smoozing with Serbian first deputy prime minister Ivica Dačić
Posing with the bosses was surely a must
It would be interesting to know where Petar Grbić found this amazingly orange jacket
For this hat even the most forgiving judge would give 10 years of forced labour in a quarry to Bojinov
Everyone must get photographed with the bosses. No escape
I get that there was probably no dress code for this event. I get that, too, that a football player isn’t necessarily a fashion icon. I get even that reason, that a football player cannot buy a 3-piece Giorgio Armani-suit. But has nobody told this scatter-brained Bulgarian that you must NEVER wear a hat
a) in theatre
b) at the table
c) while dancing
d) generally indoors
because it is considered as one of the biggest indecorums. A gentleman wears hat only outdoors. Period.
Džigi, Subić and Brašanac
The Master and the young padawan
Zoran Popović had a speech. You can read it here, if you want to
Then came a stage play, written and directed specially for this occasion. The main character, a 15-year-old Grave Digger remembers back the golden ages with his grandfather and father. By the way, did you know that Albert Einstein was a Grave Digger?
Yes, he was, just like Vuk Karadžić
Here the grandfather is telling stories to the young fan about Stjepan Bobek
Great names to remember...
...and some are still with us: Vladica Kovačević...
(Mustafa Hasanagić was also there, but nobody took any photos about him)
Meanwhile the scene changed, here are the parents of the young Grave Digger
The father was a Grave Digger as well, of course, one of the first members of the Southern Tribune. He also remembered the great old days...
...and the Living Legend, Momčilo Moca Vukotić, who can’t, who mustn’t be forgotten
