Mount Olympus Basketball, the gods and goddesses play against a human basketball
team. Problems occur, however, when the gods become upset and lose their
tempers. Hera gets so mad at the referee for his call that she turns him
into a bull. Then Hades, god of the Underworld, gets the ball. He opens
up a hole under the basket and guess which team falls in? This laugh out
loud tale is written in the style of a live TV sportscaster’s broadcast.
If you enjoy Greek myths or just want a hilarious sports story, tune in!
