Poland and Ukraine win Euro 2012

The wrong way round

In a classic 'did he or didn't he moment' the Uefa official let the world know who had won by opening the envelope like so ->

Poland and Ukraine's joint bid to host the European Championships in 2012 was successful. They beat out widely favoured Italy for the chance to host the event.

Joint bids are all the rage these days since the success of the World Cup held in South Korea and Japan back in 2002. Now I don't know why Poland/Ukraine is a better prospect than Hungary/Croatia but that's what the judges went for, so that's what we're stuck with. What I'm concerned about is who's next? Greenland/Canada? Sudan/Yemen? Maybe we'll get a threeway bid; how does Mongolia/Papua New Guinea/Federated States of Micronesia sound?

Phhhbbt, 2012 is an Olympic year anyway, who cares about the European  Soccer Championships?
