Tale of game KOKOS
In a far away constellation of Takeshy Kurosawa and Calvin Klein there is a planet called ARMANI. Like on all other planets of this constellation, there was an annual GAS game championship.
This game was born long before our time and some say that it was created by space aliens from a very far constellation called EXIBIT. 3 teams, each of 5 players, take part in one game. The aim is to put GUESS ball through similar-sized basket that is set on the wall 1 meter up from the ground. Ball can be moved using legs and feet. Game field is triangle-shaped and is called Lazzaro. Lazzaro has 3 meter high walls to keep the GUESS ball inside the field and always in movement. GAS has three times – each 10 minutes. If a foul occurs by team in possession of the ball, that team will pass the ball to opposing team which had player involved in incident. GAS players have to maintain good physical shape, endurance, sharp, logical mind and good tactical skills. Knowing that there are 3 teams at the same time on the field gives countless strategic possibilities and makes GAS the most exciting game of Takeshy Kurosawa and Calvin Klein constellation.
Each year every planet of constellation Takeshy Kurosawa and Calvin Klein hosts GAS tournament where all cities take place. Every 4 years the most important championship of the constellation is held – Tommy Hilfiger – that brings together all the winners of planet tournaments of the last 4 years to fight for the biggest GAS victory there is. During Tommy Hilfiger tournament all citizens of every planet in this constellation forgets about their daily matters and follows the championship where all the winners, best and brightest teams from their planets are competing against each other.
In the poor town of Primo Emporio on the planet ARMANI there was a team that almost nobody knew about – KOKOS. Nobody knew about them because they were poor as their town and without sponsors. Even without coach and their own Lazzaro field. Ghetto team, one might even say. Well, it was like that until, just by accident, they were spotted by some old man Pierre Balmain who arrived from a very rich planet called Moschino. Luckily, old sir happened to be around the game field where team was playing that day and he saw something in them. Such passion for game so he couldnt even describe it.Old man was already retired and he didnt have much to do so he felt like he has to help these poor players and maybe even coach them. But there was one thing – he had never played the GAS game – he was just a spectator.
KOKOS team was very happy to receive news that Pierre Balmain from the glamorous planet MOSCHINO wants to mentor them and even help with money. First things first – old man bought a lot of books about strategic aspects of GAS game and made all the players to learn them as a Bible. Every evening he held meeting where he questioned players about books and talked out everything that was unclear. This training more looked like a chess hour than a GUESS ball game training. Team KOKOS had almost none of the physical trainings because they were already buff and brave – they learned theory instead and played out new tactics on their triangular game field Lazzaro.
KOKOS lost their first game though – just like all before – without any points. But 5th was the charm and they beat teams Gaudi and Gianfranco Ferre and got into the the next round, where stronger teams from bigger and richer cities awaited. All this time wise Pierre Balmain motivated the team to read even more. Not just about GAS game. About psychology, logic and success. That year KOKOS won the regional tournament, beating experienced and well known teams like SORBINO and VKing. This important victory gave the chance to participate in the main tournament of planet ARMANI.
Everybody talke about these newbies. How come that such a small ghetto team like KOKOS can get into the planet final tournament JEEP in just one year? Taking part in JEEP, the most important tournament of planet ARMANI where such famous teams as State of Art, Ralph Lauren, BJORKVIN and Anthoni Crown are playing and fighting for a chance to represent their planet in the biggest championship of constellation – Tommy Hilfiger – that was the dream of team KOKOS. Meanwhile team didnt fully believe that hye could actually win the tournament and participate in prestigious interstellar championship Tommy Hilfiger. But Pierre Balmain never stopped believing.
Believe and You shall receive. Apparently, not only the old coach from glorious planet MOSCHINO believed in KOKOS but also all the poor citizens of planet ARMANI did. All the poor people from the wide constellation believed in KOKOS. GAS game usually was the pleasure of the rich ones – leaving all others as spectators only. That is why slumdog team KOKOS got an icredible amount of fans all over the constellation of Takeshy Kurosawa and Calvin Klein. It must have been this amazing faith that brought team KOKOS to their victory in the main tournament of planet ARMANI and got them a ticket to celebrated championship of Tommy Hilfiger that was held every 4 years.
Almost every championship of Tommy Hilfiger got the same planets fighting over the trophy – only thing that changed was the teams that represented those planets: ZEUS, VERSACE and DIESEL. Planet ARMANI had never won this tournament so nobody looked at it as the potential winner. But big teams were eager to measure their strenght with the underdog team KOKOS that got the all of the worlds eyes on them in such a short amount of time.
During the group stage KOKOS barely took down two teams from planet Versace – Frankie Morello and Vera Pelle. In semifinal KOKOS took down prized teams Camel and Hugo Boss from ZEUS. Only then the people of wide constellation of Takeshy Kurosawa and Calvin Klein realized that such a small slumdog team with old coach can actually win the whole thing and change the history of GAS game.
KOKOS lost their first Tommy Hilfiger championship. But they got themselves into the final. Everyone living in the big constellation saw them as they proved that GAS can be played by anyone. One just need a strong will and urge to learn and evolve. Right after the tournament a lot of strong ghetto teams were born from all corners of the constellation. Old Balmain knew that with his team he gave hope to everybody else. He made the brand world constellation a better place.
