over there it's called "football"

On NPR this morning, I heard a brief story about a pair of men in a suburb of Paris who held up their local City Hall with guns, demanding to see the mayor.

The two wanted to see the mayor because they were adamant about demanding tickets to the Barcelona-Arsenal semi-final soccer match.

Jim remarked, "Did they really not think they would face any kind of penalty for entering City Hall with guns?"

I responded, "Guns shmuns! More to the point, why the hell did they assume the mayor would have tickets?!?"
