Question #1981

Geek Question of the Day: OK so this one may or may not have been inspired by a certain new years tradition in NYC, but hey it's a good excuse to ask you; If you added or replaced the word 'ball' in the title of a story, what would the resulting plot and title become? As always, any source or genre is up for grabs. Oh and Happy New Year to all of you! =)
