Sick and tired of negotiations on how to solve the economic crisis in Greece, European country leaders voted to hold a friendly, US inspired, ball game with players from the European Union. Their hope was to build team spirit among the ailing and divided union. The euro would be the primary currency used for ticket sales, and free tickets would be provided to the people of Greece who wished to attend the sports event, but didn't have the resources to pay the cost of admission fee. " We are happy to invite Greece to this event. We are unified and have each others' backs" said Angela Merkel, the current Chancellor of Germany. "We welcome the opportunity to join our fellow Europeans in a friendly game of ball", agreed Prime Minister George Papandreou. "I love a good ball game", added French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Unfortunately, this feel good moment was rapidly lost, when a decision was made to call a ball, "out" on one of the Greek team members who had accidentally sent the ball out of bounds. Papandreou who is loyal to his country declared that he wished to pass this decision by the refs in his country to determine if the call was fair, and would work for his team.
Sarkozy stomped his feet, and screamed epithets at the Greek Prime Minister claiming that he was trying to destroy the European Union, and was being a poor sport about the ball-out decision. In a rare moment of vulnerability, Sarkozy desperately stated, "I just don't know what to do anymore. It's all greek to me."
