Greece v. Germany Euro 2012 match

Chirping is a sacred tradition in the sports world. During Friday's Euro 2012 match between Greece and Germany, the digs and barbs turned political as spectators poked fun at the current political and economic climate in the troubled euro zone.


  1. Many people were waiting for the jabs to fly, sensing the opportunity.
  2. The opportunity was certainly grasped. 
  3. Once the game was under way, the play provided more fodder ...
  4. ... Especially when Germany scored. 
  5. Germany was up by 1 at halftime. 
  6. But Greece was able to even out when the game resumed.
  7. For a few minutes, anyway.
  8. There was some sympathy for Greece, too.
