CROATIA v France Final rematch (The Triggering continues)

so 2 Europe's premier sporting nations are facing each other once again in a major final: the Davis Cup (last ever final as the competition will be cancelled or rebranded or some shit)

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

the stakes are high: as per the agreement of two countries presidents, if France loses they have to surrender the World Cup trophy. If Croatia loses they have to move the Zagreb Pride Parade to Paris, thus losing tens of millions in tourism revenue.

Wrong, otherwise Russia would be involved.

A quick 2-0 lead for Croatia.

One more point away from the latest GOLD.

Ladies, trigger warning in effect. So get ready to assume your customary spot in the basement curled up in the fetal position screaming at the sky.

PS I am debating if I should do backstrokes in your overflowing river of tears, or perhaps surf them this time? All depends on how strong the current is.

Terrific start. Both us and France have great doubles players so that one should be interesting. The French team are going to go all out. Would be great to kill em off with the 3-0.

First EEPL Champion.

The Davis Cup is ours. Historic considering its the last Davis Cup of this kind.

No VAR to save the French this time.

Aye, we're tennis world champions, again. Congratulations to our team, we were the best and we showed it, we didn't choke, we didn't shit the bed, just got out there and did the job the Croatian way. You can't ask for anything more.

Hope our players get hammered and lay some french pipe tonight for tomorrow is a new day in anticipation of the next Croatian gold.

I have to admit, keep tracking of all the golds takes great organization skills.

Other countries are happy just to qualify for events, we go in expecting to win.

Its our committment to excellence which demands we win for our fans worldwide.

What else to say,

It is remarkable, isn't it Ante. We just consistently dominate. How can it be explained? Who knows. The scientists are baffled, it's an anomaly that defies everything we know about evolution and biology, that an obscure little south slavic tribe who gained their independence less than three decades ago might come to stand shoulder to shoulder with the greatest sporting nations on Gods green Earth.

Well, our anthem is playing yet again as the check spangled tricolor is, again, lifted to the rafters in recognition of our unwavering fighting spirit and natural talent
