That is the only explanation for Spain's shocking loss in the Eurobasket final: somebody put a curse on them. This is the 6th time Spain loses in the European championship final. They had it all going for them and I do mean all: the best team ever covered in all positions, world champion title won last year, home turf, the lead which they had for the entire game...All that spoiled by one shot from a dyed-in-the-wool Russian by the name of John Robert Holden. What are you all laughing at? Didn't you know that Holden's ancestors fought at Poltava under Peter the Great?
OK, I know it's a politically incorrect joke but it has to come natural considering the situation.
