The strangest business sponsorships (prostitutes, pantyhose, pudding and more)
Things are so bad in debt-laden Greece that government spending cuts have left sports clubs limping.
But the game must go on, and so some team owners began looking for sponsorships -- and found funeral homes and brothels willing to shell out funds.
Here is a look at some of the stranger partnerships in sports and business history - ranging from the scandalous (male enhancement pills, anyone?) to the transparent (pantyhose looks good on burly quarterbacks too).

The amateur Voukefalas soccer club in Greece now practices in pink jerseys featuring logos such as Villa Erotica and Soula's House of History after accepting sponsorship offers from brothels. Though prostitution is legal in Greece, the shirts have been banned during games because of their suggestive nature. Another team, Paleopyrgo, paired up with a funeral home and now plays ball in black shirts emblazoned with crosses.
