Masked Gunmen Attempt To Rob Championship Game Soccer Tickets
Earlier today in Paris, France, two masked gunmen stormed a suburban city hall seeking to steal soccer tickets for the Champions Leagues final. Luckily, no one was injured. The original plan for the thieves was to rob the mayor of the city, because the mayor usually receives extra guest tickets for special events. The hot ticket is for a match-up between the Ronaldinho of Barcelona and Thierry Henry of Arsenal. The Champions League is organized by the UEFA (Union of European Football Association) and is regarded as one of the most prestigious club competition in soccer - basically the yearly Finals of Soccer in Europe.

These turn of events have French-joke-material written all over it for comedians to use.
